What we are looking for

  • We Brits love a convertible car, and we buy more of them than many of the people who live in more temperate European countries. However, our mixed climate means that a good drop-top must be practical, able to expose its occupants to the elements at the flick of a switch or touch of a button, and cover them again quickly when the rains sweep in. None of this must spoil the driving experience, of course, nor the comfort, nor the overall refinement – and especially not the special feel-good factor many seek from a convertible car.
