Time passes quickly as we all know. It is never too late to think of the future. I’ve sparked your interest? Throw your eyes on this top and maybe you will find something to your taste.
1. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible
Not ranked first, it is true. But look at it a bit and hear the engine purr and roar. Aspect of modern punk, delicious aggressive lines, lot of history hidden behind the name and above all an american car, which revived from the ashes the name Camaro. It is the most powerful convertible produced by Chevrolet. At a price of just under $60k, you will receive a huge 6.2-liter 580 horsepower supercharged V8 drop-top ZL1 engine and an american legend. This car has real chances to become a true classic. If the standard version was the explosion the convertible version is the shock wave.
2. Porsche Cayman S
Better known as the younger brother of 911. The 2013 model evolved to being more efficient and lighter than all previous models. For $63,800 you get luxury, performance and elegance. Engine? 3.4-liter 325-hp flat-six engine paired with 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. A wolf disguised as a lamb right? The chances to become a true classic are high, with history confirming the potential of these cars to achieve fabulous amounts of money and special places in collectors garages.
3. Audi RS5
Perhaps the only car from the top that combines space and performance so good. Large enough that you can still take friends with you, fast enough that you can take it to the track with your kids. Sober yet elegant, still has that special air that lets you know who you are dealing with. Devoid of exaggerated elements the RS5 relies on a more tasteful minimal design. That does not mean that you will be ashamed if you put it to run. A 4.2-liter V8 with 450 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque will engraft a big smile on your face and if you’re brave enough you can disconnect the driving assistance systems for more adrenaline. It may seem boring for a teenager but for an adult it may be the ideal mix of elegance and sportiness.
4. Corvette Convertible 427
A true classic over the years, a true classic today. Visually has not suffered major changes over time. Recognizable in a glance it was the childhood dream for many of us. Only overshadowed by the new Corvette Stingray’s styling, this car is even now a living classic. With 7.0-liter V8 monster engine, the 505-hp 427 special edition is the last C6. The 2013 model marks the 60 year history of Corvette brand. The amount of $75,925 brings beside the car itself the status of “fastest and most capable Corvette convertible yet”.
5. Viper SRT
640hp, 600lb-ft and 8.4-liter V10 engine. Enough engine to fold every piece of asphalt right? The statement which says “the most torque of any naturally aspirated engine currently produced” seems valid now. $97,395 for a true legend car which in its latest incarnation has received only praise and drolling eyes. Since leaving the factory gates this car has a good chance of becoming a classic.
Now count your money, be ready to banish your wife if you will argue for what you plan to do and..grab one of these.
