My tester is coated in what has to be 15 layers of Infrared paint, highlighting a spindle grille and distinct headlamps.

In Sport Plus mode, the 10-speed automatic transmission is happy to hang out in the high revs all day long, only upshifting when it nearly touches the redline.

The LC 500 Convertible has an EPA fuel rating of 15 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined. Despite my heavy right foot I still managed 20.2 mpg during my week of testing.

As with most convertibles, the contraption that brings the roof up and down takes up a ton of space, leaving the Lexus with just 3.4 cubic feet of room in the trunk.
