NCE Decapitates Acura TL Sedan, Proposes to do the Same to AM Rapide and Hyundai Equus

|

To be frank, I never understood the allure or the reasoning, for that matter, behind the aftermarket conversion of four-door sedans to convertibles, but I guess each to his own taste.

While we're on the subject of taste (or the lack thereof…), the drop-top specialists over at Newport Convertible Engineering (NEC) from Placentia, California, have sharpened their scalpels on the roof of an Acura TL sedan turning it into a four-door cabriolet with a center roll-bar to keep things in place. The gold stripes running down the middle are the cherry icing to this strangely flavored cake.

Looking at NEC's other creations, I found a couple new proposals for roofless versions of Hyundai's Equus luxury sedan and the Aston Martin Rapide sports saloon, renders of which can be found right below the break.
