Toyota's luxury brand Lexus is about to auction its special single one-off model the LC500 to donate funds to charity.

The unveiling of the LC500 by Lexus back in 2018 has left an indelible memory on the minds of car enthusiasts, which is comprehensible due to how unique the model is. And, during last year' LA Auto Show, Lexus one more time wowed fans of luxury cars with the revelation of a convertible version. Sadly, the chill did not linger so long as it is reported to be only a one-off.

But now, there is a new twist to the dynamics of the rare LC500 convertible. Lexus has decided to auction it to one lucky buyer at a Barrett-Jackson auction scheduled for January 17, 2020. If you are one of those who would give an arm and a leg to be the proud owner of this masterpiece (the first of only 100 units produced), dust your bidding hat, and go try your luck. But be well prepared because you will be going up against some die-hard Lexus fans who would go the extra mile to win the bid.

The car has a unique 100001 verification number and a leather interior of semi-aniline among other amazing features.
