Should Land Rover Build A Limited Edition Range Rover SV Convertible?

While this Range Rover SV Convertible is just a rendering, the British automaker has experimented with roofless SUVs before, resulting in the drop-top Evoque.

Visit most official Land Rover websites and you’ll see that the Evoque Convertible is still there, being sold, despite not receiving the most favorable reviews from the Press. Still, it’s the “world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible,” as stated by Land Rober, and being first into a new niche might count for a lot when dealing with premium products.

So what if the same recipe were to be applied to the bigger Range Rover? Is a convertible version that much more unlikely than a coupe? The latter is already here, albeit as a limited edition, so what’s stopping Land Rover from cutting its roof off and one-upping the new SV Coupe’s £240,000 ($333,000) price tag?

Well, we guess it depends on how many customers would be interested in such a model. If a sufficient number expressed their intention to buy one, we guess the end-product would probably look a lot like this render. It mustn’t have been that hard for Aksyonov Nikita, who took the SV Coupe and just deleted the roof.

However, we’re not sure if a 565 PS open-top SUV would be such a good idea. What say you, is the prospect of a Range Rover SV Convertible cringe-worthy or intriguing?

    Unnecessary!

  • brn

    Sure, why not. I don’t care what Land Rover does.

  • LWOAP

    NO.

  • I wouldn’t surprised if they do. The SVCoupe is a thing and they probably need to make something for those who miss the Coupe.

    Convertibles should stay on the Land Rover/Land Rover side of the brand. More Jeep-like. It doesn’t work for the Range Rover side of the business. How many $200k parade cars does the world need?

    • Timothy Gough

      It wouldn’t cost $200k, it would cost way more than that. And you can be certain they’re inspired by the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Launderlet convertible SUV which is ultra-luxurious and very popular in the very limited edition/expensive segment that this Range Rover SUV coupe convertible would also be. I don’t support it but I can see the inspiration behind their business idea and I am not against it.

    NO SUV Convertibles please.

  • roy

    Looks good actually

  • erly5

    No!

  • wait a minute

    next week…
    should RR build a 6 wheel version of the SV coupe?
    should RR build a 4×4 squared version of the SV coupe?
    should RR build a camel trophy version of the SV coupe?
    should RR build a long wheel base, convertible popemobile version of the SV coupe?

    (insert photoscoop pictures here)

    Although they could always design a convertible roof variant of the upcoming Defender to fill “drop-top” market niche, I can understand why Range Rover may want to do this seeing how wonderfully well people took to the ultra-luxuruous convertible Mercedes-Maybach G650 Launderlet.

  • jfalckt

    I guess it depends on the climate/country you live in, but unless you want to look like a total douchebag I’d say not building it was the best idea.

    In some rich Middle East markets this thing will sell like hot cakes even at 300.000 Dollars…
