The Range Rover Evoque Cabrio is returning to our attention once again, this time with the help of a new spy video, which is showing the model in action, on the Nurburgring.
Land Rover is currently developing another version of the popular Evoque, the convertible, and after a lot of reports have been announcing it over these past few months, time has come to see more and more prototypes on the open road or, as this one, on the famous German track, the Nurburgring. Developing a convertible premium crossover may be strange enough to start with but tweaking it on the Ring is even stranger. However, this hasn’t stopped the British based brand from an intense testing session of the vehicle which will be debuting sometimes next year.
The open-top Evoque will be getting some fine-tuning, besides the foldable soft-top, and it will be an evolution of the concept car shown back in 2012, at the Geneva Motor Show. The model will be adopting an electrically retractable soft top, instead of the fixed metal roof, and it will come in a 3-door body style. The crossover will be also getting a revised rear end and an integrated spoiler. The engine lineup will be carried over from the facelifted version and the Si4 petrol turbocharged unit, with 240 HP (177 kW) and the TD4 Ingenium turbo diesel, rated at 150 HP (110 kW) or 180 HP (132 kW), will be added to the range. Additional details on it are limited at this point but rumor has it that this will be unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, this September.
