Range Rover Evoque loses its roof, Victoria Beckham edition

Over the years there have been a number of topless Land Rover vehicles, but none had the kind of looks that would make you turn your head and think wow. However, that could all be about to change if rumors of a Range Rover Evoque come off. This will be a first for the company, as the vehicle does have the looks to pull it off.

We cannot say for certain if this will happen, but Autoblog has said that this could be the special Victoria Beckham edition. If this is the case, then this will make the car an even tougher sell for men. It is no secret that VB has a flair for fashion, so one would expect a few feminine touches here and there, but we worry that Land Rover are allowing themselves to alienate the male market.

The Evoque convertible will be aimed at two models, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the yet to be announced Audi Q5 cabrio. Choosing between the three is not hard at all, number three will be the Nissan, number two the Range Rover and number one is the Audi. Now you may wonder why we went with this choice?

Well, the Murano CrossCabriolet has no style at all, and since these drop tops are all about how they look, it just seems a little pointless. Then the Evoque; personally I have never been a fan of these kind of vehicles, but Land Rover need to forget making these hideous versions – yes the Sport as well – and concentrate on what they are good at, and that is off-road vehicles. Do not take my word for it; even the guys on Top Gear think the same.

The rumored Audi Q5 cabrio looks the best of the bunch, even if its styling is still questionable. The front end looks like a Humpback Whale opening its mouth ready to take in some krill. While gazing a little longer I am reminded of a Boyd Coddington creation – looks like Audi might have themselves a hot-rod.

We are not too certain as to how sales have been going for the Evoque, but they will be boosted once it makes its way to the US, which we know will be in just a few months. We can see it being very popular in LA, as well as with rappers – well only the female ones.

Do you think that the Range Rover Evoque Victoria Beckham special edition will be a convertible?
