The Lexus IS 300 C is the convertible version of the US luxury sedan. It is the first of its kind to be offered here by Toyota's luxury car division.
Featuring a retractable hard top that goes down in a blistering top-of-class 21 seconds, you'll feel the wind in your face before you can say, pronto! It retracts quietly and smoothly, thanks to a lightweight aluminum design and a rook-speed brake-control system. For extra comfort, the air conditioning system adjusts according to outside temperature and vehicle speed, while additional insulation materials make for a quiet and comfortable cabin. Passengers in the rear can get in and out of the car easily too, with power-assisted front seats.
A 3.0-liter V6 dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) engine powers the Lexus IS 300 C and produces 170kW @6200 RPM and 300Nm @4400 RPM. It's no sports car so hit the cruise mode and enjoy the IS 300 C. It weighs 180 kilograms more than its sedan version, which makes it half-a-second slower than its four-door counterpart. A small price to pay for its attention-getting retractable roof.—Gelo Gonzales
