2010 Lexus IS C convertible Manila Top Gear Philippines

The first convertible Lexus geared for the local market arrives today as Toyota's premium luxury brand aims to capture the hearts of car enthusiasts who go for style and power in top-down and sedan-like driving.

The Lexus IS 300C boasts of having the fastest retractable hardtop in its class as it unfolds in just 20 seconds.

"This car is perfect for those who love the wind and the light at its most natural state," Lexus Manila president Daniel M. Isla said.

At P3.978 million, the IS 300C comes with an exterior design and interior comforts and luxury consistent with the other cars under the IS lineup, plus the retractable hardtop.

It is also equipped with the same power train found in existing IS models. The IS 300C promises a maximum performance of 170kw at 6,200rpm and torque of 300Nm at 4,400rpm with its 3.0-liter V6 dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence engine.

The Lexus IS 300C will be on display at the Power Plant Mall in Makati City from August 21 to 23. See the Lexus IS C's hardtop retract on our gallery below.
