http://www.uaesale.com/uae_mycar_en.aspx?carid=24790There are two types of people in the world: those who say, “I wish to be a reasonable and productive member of society,” and those who say, “Sure, I love the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, but it’s just a little too sensible; I need something real classy.” Fear not, fanciful friends; the quixotic chariot of your dreams has finally arrived. Behold the Lexus LX570 convertible.
Spotted on the UAEsale Facebook page by one of our diligent staffers during office hours, this softtop Lexus LX570 SUV is currently for sale in the United Arab Emirates for a piddling $1,300,000 AED. That’s about $340,000 in U.S. currency, or roughly $250,000 more than the current $89,830 base MSRP of a 2016 LX570 with its roof still intact.
And while we can’t name the stylistic visionary responsible for the this sun-seeking Lexus, a quick internet search reveals to our surprise that the California-based firm Newport Convertible Engineering—the same folks who brought us the Porsche Cayenne convertible—also trades in topless LX570s. The NCE conversions, however, clearly feature a roof rail connecting the A-, B-, and C-pillars, whereas everything but the B-pillar roll bar on the vehicle here appears to have fallen to the almighty Sawzall. Where the surgery was performed is anyone’s guess.
