While Cadillac recently killed any hopes of ahigh-performance ELR-V version of its hybrid ELR model, California companyNewport Convertible Engineering has just announced that it will build a limitededition convertible version of the car. NCE, which has already churned outunique drop-top models of cars like the Porsche Cayenne, Cadillac Escalade andan upcoming Nissan GT-R convertible, says it will market the convertible ELR inCalifornia, Barcelona and Dubai.
With stock models of the hybrid ELR starting at $75,000, thedrop-top version is expected to be as expensive as it is rare. Still, it willbe quite the looker, and will continue to offer the same 207-horsepowerelectric motor and 3.6-liter V6.
