“Bond Girl” Naomie Harris Helps Range Rover Go Topless with New Evoque Convertible

Actress Naomie Harris, fresh from her role in the 007 film, SPECTRE, helps introduce the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible.

She’s helped Bond, James Bond, save the world. Now, Moneypenny – also known as actress Naomie Harris – is lending her support to British maker Land Rover as it rolls into Tinseltown for the annual L.A. Auto Show.

Harris was on hand for a sneak preview of the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the maker’s first true convertible and one of the few droptop SUVs ever offered. The new model will get its first public showing at the Los Angeles Convention Center later this week.

The actress’s appearance was well timed considering the huge success of the new James Bond film, SPECTRE. The 24th in the long-running franchise’s history, has been holding onto the global box office lead since it debuted.

The Nissan Murano Convertible debuts in L.A., this week, and will go on sale early in 2011.

Nissan has shown a flair for the non-traditional, especially when it comes to design.  Just witness its Murano and Infiniti FX crossovers, which showed you didn’t have to build a boxy, SUV-like product to win consumers over.

But, as reported earlier this year, Nissan seemed to be stretching things to the limits with its idea of rolling out a Murano-based convertible.  Would it be as awkward and ungainly as the unloved Chevrolet SSR, the less-than compelling pickup-convertible combination that fell flat on its face a few years back?

A number of our media colleagues tried to imagine what the Nissan Murano Convertible might look like, and, indeed, they came up with some decidedly ungainly ideas, including center-mounted rollbars, that just wouldn’t have made for a very attractive offering.

But, it turns out, what Nissan is billing as “the world’s first all-wheel-drive convertible crossover” is a surprisingly stylish and reasonably elegant design.
