UPDATE: We've got live pics accessible in the gallery below.

click above for more images of the Lexus LF-A Convertible

Motive dropped Lexus' bomb on the unsuspecting masses a few minutes ago, showing the roadster version of the LF-A premium sports car concept. The high-po roadster is made up of carbon fiber and aluminum, supposedly maintaining a high amount of structural rigidity even without its roof.

Pulling both design and (assumed) engineering from the LF-A coupe, the roadster will be packing approximately 5.0-liters in its front-mounted V10, sending over 500 hp down to a transmission fitted between towards the back for optimal weight balance.

We'll have more from the show floor when the LF-A takes the stage, but in the meantime, check the gallery of images below.

UPDATE:
Lexus releases 60 high-res images of the LF-A Roadster, but no additional information. The only new thing we know is that the car features a retractable rear spoiler.
