Our favourite convertibles now the sun’s poking through
Here at Big Cars, we’re looking forward to driving in the Summer as much as a lot of our customers are! Here’s a few picks for what we think are some of the top cars for when the sun comes out this year.
This monster is built around a Bi-Turbo V8, producing 552bhp, making it undoubtedly the most powerful out of the bunch. However, all this power, a seven-speed dual-clutch gear box and a 0-62 of 4.3 seconds comes with a hefty price tag of over £97,000!
Other than the mechanical features of this BMW, there’s a lot to shout about with its styling too. Its broad stance and twin tailpipes team together perfectly, giving it a sort of muscular twist to the usual BMW styling that’s quite obviously carried on from its predecessors.
For a lot of people, an Alfa Romeo isn’t just a petrol head must-have, but it’s also something worth taking a step back from and just looking at every now and then. This is certainly the case with the 4C Spyder, its classic looks crossed with a race-ready stance makes it something of a work of art.
It's not just the outside either that’s a work of art, the car’s heart is a turbocharged 1.75 Litre 4-cylinder lump, putting out 240bhp. Paired with a carbon-fibre tub, this little Alfa shift pretty quick, whilst achieving up to 56.5 MPG, that’s not to be sniffed at!
Audi TT RS Roadster
Just look at it! For such a small car, this Audi not only looks evil, but sounds it too!
Using Audi’s famous 2.5L 5-cylinder engine, a soft top TT with 395 BHP is something of a tool for fun. There’s a lot of technology in this car too, from adjustable engine noise to magnetic ride adaptive dampers, it does come with a £55,000 price tag. But for some people, this thing would take their Summer to a whole new level!
Audi A3 S Line
So here’s something a little more affordable, yours for just £21,950 in fact. This A3 S Line is stunning with leather interior, paddle shifters and a nifty 1.8L turbocharged engine. Still with 180 BHP, it doesn’t hang around, yet it can achieve up to 48.7 MPG, what’s not to love?
