And you know what? Volkswagen made a number of similar cars. There's the recently discontinued Beetle which had a jacked-up version called the Beetle Dune. We liked the look of that one, but it cost a lot of money and wasn't very practical... sort of like the T-Roc Cabrio is going to be.
Also, the Mk6 Golf brought back the Cabrio body style. It's so obscure that we had to pull some official numbers just to be sure what we were saying was correct. Production took place between 2011 and 2016, so it overlapped almost completely with the Golf 7, and that's because it was made at another factory.
Probably the weirdest version of them all was the Golf R Cabrio, which probably only a few thousand units. It was expensive for its time, quite heavy too. But there was no other open-top car with a 270 horsepower 2-liter turbo engine... if you exclude the TTS Roadster.
Which brings us neatly to the rendering of the day, combining the T-Roc Cabriolet body style with the muscle of the T-Roc R, which VW made available from €44,000 on the same week. X-Tomi Design probably didn't have too hard of a time with this job, though it's not something the purists will go nuts over.
