To me this was a smart marketing move... They managed to show this new LC convertible to car enthusiasts who can actually afford it, and show it for those who don't have the money throw publicly giving way 2M USD for charity thanks to a gorgeous car which many might not know the model or Lexus as a brand.

It's crazy how Lexus was able to pull off a coupe and convertible that are both equally beautiful. Usually when you convertible-ify a coupe, something ends up ugly or awkward.

Lexus really nailed it.
