Italian Coachbuilder Turns Nissan Nv200 Into A Sightseeing Open - Top Mpv


Italian Coachbuilder Turns Nissan NV200 into a Sightseeing Open-Top MPVBuilt by Italian coachbuilder Giovanni Vernagallo and officially approved by Nissan, the Evalia C has had its metal roof replaced by a removable fabric top. The car still comes with sliding doors and it can be specified with either five or seven seats. Surprisingly, the Nissan Evalia C is more than just a one-off exercise, as the cabrio MPV is available to order both at Giovanni Vernagallo and at any Nissan dealer in Italy.

Since the car is basically a Nissan Evalia without a roof, customers can choose between the same engines as on the regular model: there’s a 110hp 1.6-liter gasoline engine and a 1.5-liter diesel available in two states of tune – 90 hp and 110 hp (the latter was chosen for the first unit made).

Building the car takes about 5 months, but those interested should also know that the pictured Evalia C costs €47,500 ($61,975). That’s because the conversion alone costs €29,000 ($37,840) and the car is based on the top N-Tec trim level. However, Nissan says the Evalia C can be ordered for the cheaper Visia and Acenta trim levels as well.
