The 5 at 5 Enjoy some roof down driving whatever your budget.

ALMOST A CENTURY after the convertible as we know it first appeared, the drop-top is still the ultimate aspirational motor. Now you too can drop the top and feel the wind in your hair as you cruise along.

We’ve rounded up the best on offer on DoneDeal, from the top-end dream car to the distinctly affordable.

2017 Ford Mustang Convertible, €83,400

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The Ford Mustang is an icon. A classic. It looks cool and muscular and has real presence especially in this all-black combo. It is the James Dean of cars.

The convertible looks just like the regular coupe but it has added sex appeal thanks to that folding fabric roof. Motoring just doesn’t get any cooler.

2014 BMW 6 Series Convertible, €52,900

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The BMW 6 Series convertible is a very handsome car and looks the part with the roof up or down. This 640d model is powered by BMW’s venerable turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six diesel, which produces 313hp and an astounding 630Nm of torque. This amount of torque makes the car feel fast at any speed in any gear.

2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, €43,950

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The soft top on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabrio takes just 20 seconds to open and that’s roughly how long it will take you to be seduced by its charms. The E-Class is low and wide giving it real presence and it looks very elegant and glamorous too.

The best thing is that you can share your open-top adventures with your friends as there are two very comfortable rear seats.

2012 Audi A3 Cabriolet, €20,995

DoneDeal DoneDeal

The Audi A3 Cabriolet is a two-door, four-seat soft-top that looks sporty – especially in this S line trim – but it’s actually quite comfortable and easy to drive. It is very stylish too and is quite a head turner with the roof down.

That fabric roof opens and closes electrically in 18 seconds, and can be operated at speeds of up to 50km/h, which is handy for avoiding those Irish downpours.
