Pretty neat engine. I love the interior too and on how comfortable it looks. I do hope that its not too crowded for the rear passenger though as I find it with a lot of 2 door convertibles that the rear leg room is not that spacious. I hope this one is different.

This is one of the coolest convertible. It has a space for everybody it makes it’s passenger’s comfortable.

Has the look the IS-F should have come with, but nearly $60k starting price for this??? Are they kidding? Think of what else you could get for that price. Just a quick few that come to mind: Corvette Grand Sport convertible, Shelby Mustang Cobra GT500, BMW M3, Cadillac CTS-V, Mercedes AMG C63... OK, I know none of them are hardtop convertibles, but still...
