Now that Land Rover has unveiled a two-door Range Rover Evoque, it was just a matter of time until the company decided to offer a convertible version of the car. The decision has been made taking under consideration the huge success the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is already having on the market. However, the Evoque Convertible will target clientele looking for a more luxury oriented model.

The Evoque Convertible will feature a folding textile roof‎ and will only be offered in a two-door version configuration. Expect to see the same engines as in the fixed roof version under the hood, which means a new 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine that combines direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing for a total output of 240 HP.

Chances are the new Evoque Cabrio won’t be finding its way to the market until late 2013, or even early 2014, so don’t expect it to get here any sooner. Prices will start from about $50K.

UPDATE 07/28/2011: LandRover is reportedly considering a drop top model of their new jewel and when AutoExpress talked to them about this rumor, they did not deny it.

"A convertible Evoque wouldn’t be the maddest brand extension. It isn’t a totally crazy idea," a spokeperson admitted. “All I can say is watch this space. We’ve got lots of ideas for the Evoque."

Wow! This is very unusual, a convertible SUV?! But the idea is great. I don’t like the color, it will look much better on red.

Seems everyone are so excited about this Cabrio, well I can’t blame them. I’m also fond with the style and design that it had and I’m agree with them that this is the most impressive convertible cars nowadays.

I’m so impressed with this Cabrio! That’s why I can already say that this is the most stunning and awesome Cabrio vehicle that I saw today! I just only hope that it has as well a powerful engine.

This is really the most awesome Cabrio that I saw ever! In spite of having only a simple design, I still noticed that it was oozing with angst, and I can say that it already looks perfect on its exterior.

Evoque Cabrio is my favorite vehicle from all Rover cars! Just so sad that I need to wait for this one for too long. smiley Anyway, I am hoping that they would boost the engine of it, so it will be more an impressive Cabrio.

I am really so fond with this Cabrio, but I wonder if what will be the interior of this one will looks like, and I must say that its 240 horsepower is I think not quite good enough for it.

I’m so in love with this convertible car, all the image that I want for my car was already on this one. 2013 is worth waiting for the production on this Range Rover. I can see the luxury that this convertible car can offer.

I love the style of Cabrio plus the engine performance is still quite good for me for a Range rover car. I can’t wait to see this one on a road.
