Blown away!

Whether mega-sporty, high-style or just fun, convertibles rule!


Rolls Royce
The noble British carmaker’s mega-luxe cabriolet has been voted one of the sexiest cars of the year by famous lifestyle magazine Robb Report. It has to be said that this beauty has a lot going for it – in fact Rolls-Royce believes it’s the best-looking model the firm has ever produced.


Fortwo cabrio
This new generation retains the best of its forerunners while demonstrating its character, as in a 12-second conversion thanks to the tritop folding roof. We’ll just mention too its very complete package of safety equipment plus centralised locking, cruise control with variable limiter and an external temperature gauge.


C 43 4MATIC Cabriolet
Like the coupé, this cabriolet is powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 engine delivering 270kW (362bhp), coupled with all-wheel drive. The pleasure of open-air driving in comfort for four people is backed up by distinctly sexy lines!
