When it comes to the convertible mechanism of the car, Lexus has this to say:

“To ensure that the convertible version of the LC 500 retains a beautiful silhouette when the top is lowered, the automatic folding mechanism stores the top under an integrated tonneau cover. Because the designers incorporated a beltline that kicks up at the end of the doors, the vehicle’s profile is characterized by a body that wraps around the cabin, providing an overall tight and clean appearance.”

The design of the soft top of the roof was made as such in order to retain the flowing mechanism to it. The roof can be opened and closed even while the car is driving at speeds of up to 50 km/h. There is also an animation display on the gauge so the driver can easily monitor the closing or opening progress of the roof.

The car also has an Active Noise Control (ANC), which is combined with sound insulation and absorption techniques, that suppresses unwanted noises and unpleasant sound frequencies.

The roof of the LC 500 Convertible opens at an average speed of 15 seconds while it closes at around 16 seconds.
