Convertible Range Rover Evoque spotted testing at Nurburgring

The convertible variant of Range Rover's popular Evoque crossover vehicle has been spotted testing around the Nurburgring in Germany.

Due to go on sale next year, the original concept of the Evoque Cabrio was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. This footage shows that testing is close to the final stages, as engineers are fine-tuning the car by giving it a rigorous test around the famous Ring.

With an electronically retractable soft top, the Evoque Cabrio will utilise the same engines as the standard Evoque, but with a price premium. The Cabrio will also feature a redesigned rear end in order to make space for the hood when it's folded away.

Despite not being the type of car that is destined for hard track use, engineers use the Nurburgring to unearth any problems or teething issues that may arise during heavy changes in steering direction or acceleration.
