Obviously, Range Rover wants folks to see its new concept car before it ships off to Switzerland next month. Reading University student Simon Truscott snapped the Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet in a London alley, apparently catching it in the midst of a photo/video shoot. We’ll admit that this isn’t the ragtop Evoque’s best angle. Without a greenhouse to offset its full-figured bottom, the topless off-roader looks pretty chunky.
Range Rover says it’ll monitor audience reaction to the concept after it’s formally revealed at the Geneva Motor Show (as surely as it’s tracking the feedback people are posting already). Their words: “The concept is being shown to gauge reaction and to assess the potential for what could be another unique product from Land Rover.”
If we had to place bets, we’d wager that a production version will eventually appear in showrooms. You’ll find a press release with Range Rover’s official statement after the jump.
Editor’s Note: Our original tipster forwarded the photo as an attachment, leading us to believe it was his in original. It’s since become quite clear that Simon Truscott was the photog who snapped the photo and shared it on Twitter. The post has been modified to reflect this. – AN
