German tuner Startech will show a Range Rover Evoque Cabrio at the 2012 Geneve Auto Salon next week. The German released a teaser photo on their Facebook page yesterday.
They developed their own open-top version of the succesful Range Rover Evoque, while Land Rover will ‘explore the potential for the world’s first premium convertible SUV’ by introducing their own concept and interpretation of a convertible Evoque at the same event next week.
Land Rover engineers say that taking the roof off would only add around 75kg’s to the Evoque’s 1,670kg weight. It is unknown what the technicians at Startech achieved by removing the fixed roof and swapping it for a cloth top.
In the end, it is rather interesting to see that both a tuner Startech and the official brand Land Rover decided to release their own open-top version of the Evoque on the Geneva Motor Show next week. Let’s wait and see what their reaction is to the release of two convertible Evoque’s.
Stay tuned for more from the show in the coming days.
