The drop top theme continues today on Top Speed with the latest addition to the Lexus line-up - the Lexus IS-C – has just gone on sale in Japan. But here in the U.S. we will have to wait a little bit longer. Domestic sales will begin in early June, and the automaker has high hopes for the new car: they are planning on moving 1600 units a month.
The 2010 IS250C will start at $38,490 equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, and an automatic will bring the price up to $39,660. While the larger engine bearing IS350C will have an MSRP of $43,940.
The only other convertible in Lexus’ line-up is the SC450 priced at $67,680. With more than $20,000 between them, Lexus expects that car buyers looking to get into a Japanese luxury convertible will find the IS-C to be a very attractive option.
