This past fall, Lexus unveiled its 2021 LC 500 convertible at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The car doesn’t go on sale until this coming summer, but the automaker announced on January 12 that a one-off version of the car will be offered for bidding at Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale auction.

“The auction will take place at approximately 4:30 p.m. Mountain Standard Time on January 17,” Lexus said. “Every cent of the hammer price will be split evenly between two very deserving charities — Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which provides programs for veterans, service members and their families.

The 2021 Lexus LC 500 convertible offered at the auction is a one-of-one with a 100001 serial number, blue brake calipers, special Liquid Platinum exterior color accents, and carbon-fiber scuff plates noting “LC Inspiration Series Launch Exclusive 1 of 1.”

The car has Structural Blue exterior paint and white semi-aniline leather interior.

The high bidder also gets a framed sketch of the car, a portfolio of assembly-line photos, a certificate signed by engineers and the Motomachi plant general manager, the first set of Zero Halliburton’s custom and convertible-fitted Lexus luggage, and a “curated driving package” that includes the Lexus Performance Driving Experience with racing champion Scott Pruitt as well as three nights at the Pebble Beach Resort and a round of golf on the Pebble Beach course.
