Land Rover will show off a new convertible Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. The company says the the Range Rover Evoque convertible concept is the "world's first premium convertible SUV". It certainly looks premium to us, in fact it looks flippin' lovely.
There can be no argument that the Range Rover Evoque is one of the sexiest cars currently on the road. Well, you could argue about it, but you'd be wrong. Because Range Rover has somehow managed to fuse a practical car with some impressive modern styling and still managed to keep it as one of the nicest cars to drive currently available. This convertible promises to carry that brilliant range forward.
For a start, the roof retracts in to the boot. While this will have an impact on what you can put in the luggage area, it means that you can get the roof up in a flash. Land Rover is also keen to inform that there is a roll-over protection system installed, which will deploy if you somehow manage to flip the car over. Land Rover also says the removed roof will have only minimal impact on torsional rigidity. Try saying that, quickly, three times in a row.
There are cameras all around the car too, so you can see what's going on via the dual-view monitor on the dash. While you're keeping an eye on parked cars, your passenger can watch a DVD or something else, which should stop "other-halves" from squealing, "You're too close" on busy London streets.
Land Rover says there are no production plans for this car, but come on, who is it trying to kid? This car simply has to hit the roads, not least because the Evoque has proved to be one of the most sought-after cars of recent years. We will eat a tyre if this thing doesn't emerge at some point over the next couple of years.
