While we're still waiting for official details, we have received confirmation from the blokes at Land Rover that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible you see above is the real deal, and it will debut at next month's 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

At this time, Land Rover is calling the roofless wonder a concept, though a production model seems likely at some point in the near future. Based on the three-door Evoque, the convertible model will offer seating for four and be billed as the world's first premium convertible SUV (sorry, Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet!).

Top Gear fans were some of the first to hear about the droptop Evoque when presenter Jeremy Clarkson used a pair of scissors to cut the roof off an Evoque during a news segment this week, but it took a while before the crafty Internet got around to leaking real images. See for yourself in the image gallery above, and stay tuned for official information as we draw ever closer to the Evoque Convertible's official debut.

      Off road capability aside, what do you people have against topless SUVs / crossovers? Why do you think it's automotive blasphemy? Need I remind you about the existence of... Chevrolet K-Blazer / GMC K-Jimmy (you know, before there were S-based) Ford Bronco Dodge Ramcharger Jeep CJ / Wrangler Geo Tracker / Suzuki Sidekick Isuzu Amigo Daihatsu Rocky Mitsubishi Pajero / Dodge Raider Land Rover Defender Every Toyota Land Cruiser prior to the 1980s Toyota RAV4 (first gen) And that's just off the top of my head. There are probably more that I completely forgot. This isn't exactly new ground, and can definitely be a fun "toy" to play with. Or maybe I'm just a little biased to these types of vehicles since I live in Florida and am looking at a bright sunny day with a light breeze and it's 77 degrees outside... on February 24th. :)

      That looks like a lot of fun! If only there was a manual though, it would be perfect.

      This car looks revolutionary! Nice execution Land Rover. The new Defender design looks amazing too! Land Rover is just killing it.

      That's 100% ridiculous and 100% beautiful.

      I don't want to like it, but it doesn't look bad at all. Whether there is a point to it is another matter, but hey, Jeep makes convertible SUVs, so I guess why not? If only to make us forget the Murano CC ever existed.

        Totally agreed. I think it's a dumb idea, but damned if I don't want one anyway. Definitely made the transition better than the Murano did.

      How come convertibles can't have 4 doors?

        It can be easily done if you load on a hundreds of pounds for structural stiffness...And I mean hundreds of pounds. Think about what is holding the chassis from the "A" pillar to the trunk. Thats a stretch for structual stifness.

      Hmm... I absolutely love the hardtop Evoque, but this isn't doing much for me. I guess I just really like that sleek, chopped roof line on the base vehicle, and without it, it looks a tad clumsy to me. Seems like an interesting concept though.

      make it pink, miniaturize it, and park it outside Barbie's dream house. Tell me that it isn't where it belongs.
