A convertible version of the 2016 Lexus LX 570 has shown up at a dealership in Dubai.

According to its listing on UAE Sale, the vehicle is priced at approximately $353,000 and has zero miles on its odometer.

It’s not clear what company removed the roof of the Lexus SUV but the work appears similar to previous conversions we’ve seen from America’s Newport Convertible Engineering. Some readers will recall a Range Rover convertible crafted by the firm.

Other than the removal of the roof and some cropped body panels, the Lexus SUV looks to have been left unchanged. All four doors have been retained and there’s now a new folding canopy that covers the entire cabin. It stores away in the trunk when folded.

As odd as the concept of a convertible SUV seems, there’s been enough demand for these vehicular oddities that we’ve seen two automakers launch them in the past decade. Nissan came out with the Murano CrossCabriolet back in 2010, though thankfully the ugly thing is now dead, and just last year Land Rover came out with a Range Rover Evoque Convertible.
