Hardtop convertibles - built to take on British summers

Read Cars Logo By John Tallodi of Read Cars | Slide 1 of 19: Despite our notoriously unreliable summers and disappointingly reliable rain showers, we still buy more convertibles than any other country in Europe. The uninformed masses from the continent are sure to scoff at such apparent lunacy but the very fact that our sunny days are so fleeting makes them that much more special.On those rare days when the sun and clouds align there are few experiences more satisfying than driving down a country lane with the roof down. Let the smug French have their monotonously regular sunny south coast, we will take our two weeks of sunshine.The small issue of that pesky rain and occasionally bone-cracking cold weather, especially with the various cold fronts that refuse to let up means that most UK-based convertibles spend their days in hibernation, necessitating a second car and running the risk of missing out on one of those sunny days.So in an attempt to circumvent this unacceptable state of affairs we have picked a selection of hard top convertibles that offer the best of both worlds. Proper protection from the elements when you need it and unlimited headroom when you don’t.
