Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet

Nissan’s outrageous new Murano CrossCabrio (a name invented for this Crossover Cabriolet) was finally unveiled at the Los Angeles motor show to become the world’s first production drop-top SUV.

Featuring a fabric-roof, the Murano CC has also been turned into a two-door car and gets a whole new rear-end design. Looks aside, it seems to be huge fun driving it.

The thing is Nissan will launch it in early 2011, which is right in the middle of winter! Not the perfect time for enjoying a high-riding convertible.
