BMW Z4 Cabriolet
The BMW Z4 is a great choice if you want a car that focuses on space and comfort and this amazing car oozes elegance and class. Due to the strong engine and grippy handling, the Z4 offers drivers a supple and controlled ride. If you want to tailor your driving experience, then you’re in luck. Dynamic Control lets you do just this so that you can change the steering response, throttle, and stability control system. Take a look inside the car and you’ll see that it’s surprisingly spacious. The high quality, glossy trim looks great and there’s also plenty of room for the driver and passenger. Even the boot is of a decent size, although luggage may be a squeeze if you want to drop the roof. The good news is that the roof is slick and reliable, and doesn’t make a lot of noise at all. The Z4’s standard kit comes with some great features such as xenon headlamps, leather seats, climate control, DAB, Bluetooth and a USB socket. It also has low fuel consumption and low emissions.

Porsche Boxster Cabriolet
A fantastic open-top sports car; attractive with reasonable running costs and surprisingly useable for everyday situations. The air intakes behind the doors and rear spoiler give it a really sporty and sophisticated design. The Boxster is one of the best performing in its class with a powerful drive and competent chassis. A sharp and grippy drive also makes it incredibly fun to drive on winding roads. The accurate electro-magnetic steering also add to the thrilling drive. The Boxster’s interior is charismatic and sophisticated, with a logically laid out and beautifully built dashboard. Again, there’s loads of room inside, with legroom for both passenger and driver, and nifty cubby holes to store your things. There’s also a great amount of space with boots in the nose and tail, which give you a good 280-lites of capacity. As for the roof, it lowers in a pretty impressive 9 seconds, and the magnesium roof acts as a lid when folded down. The Boxster is excellent for fuel economy, and the running costs low. A practical and attractive car.

Jaguar F-Type Cabriolet
Glamorously styled with precise handling and a high-quality interior, Auto Express say ‘Whichever model you choose, you’re guaranteed an exhilarating driving experience that rivals the Porsche 911 convertible’. The F-Type is a great driver-focused car, and comes with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive transmissions. Dynamically styled, the performance and handling is equally impressive. It offers an elegant drive with hardly any vibration, and excellent body control in the corners. Nifty and decisive steering make the F-Type a joy to drive, and its strong grip enhances this further. Dynamic mode is also a great feature, which when used sharpens the throttle response and increases the steering weight. The exterior of the car is incredibly modern and aesthetically pleasing. Slim lights and fine lines give it an elegant vibe, and the pop out door handles make it uniquely modern. The interior is of equal high quality; the cabin is has a good amount of space, even if the boot is a bit more limited.

Audi R8 Spyder V8 Quattro
With an appealing combination of looks, performance and satisfying engine noise, the Spyder offers drivers a completely captivating experience. It is wonderfully supple, and handles brilliantly with swiftness and dexterity. A great feature is that the roof can be lowered whilst on the move, and can be opened and shut at speeds of 30mph. With excellent traction and grip, the Spyder can also be driven safely and swiftly, as well as being incredibly fun to drive. It’s comfortable to be in with its taut suspension and minimal body roll. The interior is modern, with a simplistic and minimalist feel. There may not be a lot of room for luggage, but there’s plenty of head, leg and shoulder room, and comes with great essentials like leather seats and climate control. The low-down driving position is also fantastic, and even though you’re close to the road, there’s still great visibility and tonnes of comfort. Overall the Spyder offers you everything you need in a supercar, and while it may not be as cheap as others in its class, it’s still worth every penny.
