Happy Spring Day! Our favourite drop-tops


IT’S that magical time of the year when the brown leaves suddenly start turning a vibrant green; it gets warmer, the braais begin and of course driving becomes more fun, especially with the top down. Here are our favourite convertible cars on sale at the moment:

Audi RS5 cabriolet quattro - One of our fondest memories is driving around a racetrack in an RS5 with the top down, the V8 soundtrack and the infinite headroom, which makes for quite an experience. Priced from R1 110 000.

BMW M4 cabriolet - There isn’t much not to like on the M4; it looks great, is built well, is a serious monster when you want it to be and very relaxing when you need it to be. Priced from R1 212 042.

Ferrari California T – Okay, we’ll admit, it’s pricey but it’s a drop-top Ferrari and it has a turbocharger. What’s not to like? There’s 412kW/755Nm to play with, too. Priced from R3 668 000.

Jaguar F-Type convertible - This is one very angry cat; the noise, the looks and the sheer desirability just make the open-top F-Type so cool. Priced from R941 505.

Mercedes-Benz SLK - A list of convertibles wouldn’t be complete without an SLK. It’s a very competent car with models ranging from boulevard cruisers to vicious AMG-powered brutes. Priced from R648 778.

Porsche Boxster - A former Car of the Year, locally, and a seriously capable sports car. The Boxster manages a tricky balancing act between dynamics and kerbside appeal; this is a serious driving machine. Priced from R 780 000.
