Car and Driver: What Could Be Finer than a Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet? This Lexus LX570 Convertible

Recommended Posts

Lexus LX 570 Convertible_a3They are two types of people in the world: those that say, “I wish to be a reasonable and productive member of society,” and those that 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.

Spotted on the UAEsale Facebook page by one of our diligent staffers during office hours, this soft-top Lexus LX570 SUV is currently for sale in the UAE for a piddling $1,300,000 AED. That’s about $340,000 in U.S. currency, or roughly $250K more than the current $89,830 base MSRP of 2016 LX570 with its roof still intact.

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.

So if you’re the type of well-heeled individual who boldly proclaimed, “needs less roof!” upon first sight of the Lexus LX570, you’ll want to watch the video below, and take in LX570 in all its dropt0top glory. (Make sure to turn up the audio lest you miss the jazzy, brushes-and-woodwind soundtrack.) You’re welcome.
