Range Rover has scalped its new Evoque SUV, with the unveiling this week of the surprisingly handsome Evoque Cabriolet Concept.

The topless SUV joins the quirky Murano CrossCabriolet (and decades of convertible off-roaders), but unlike the big Nissan, the Evoque range offered an existing three-door production car as a starting point.

Range Rover says the Evoque Cabrio is no half-baked showcar, with a fully-retractable "premium" roof system and a Roll Over Protection System, a drop-down tailgate and a four-seat layout.

Although strictly a concept, the Evoque Cabriolet could conceivably make the leap to production: according to the British carmaker, lopping off the SUV's roof has had only a minor impact on weight and rigidity.

"We are excited to see the response to this concept as we assess the potential for building on the Evoque's exceptional success so far," John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director said.

Putting the elbow into Nissan, the British prestige carmaker said the Evoque Cabriolet concept "has the potential to be the world's first premium convertible SUV".
