Sunny Side up: five convertibles for the start of spring
Bentley Continental GTC Speed
It feels like the Bentley Continental GTC Speed has the power to shift continental plates with its all-wheel drive - even in fresh air mode. However, he also convinces with his mannerly demeanour and unfailing style even at a moderate pace. Quilted leather, ventilated seats and a superior W12 engine leave no room for "What if …".
Blue skies? Blue car! With the Lexus LC500 you can enjoy the sunshine in style and at the same time glide relaxed and powerful over winding country roads. These are the Japanese car's traditional territory. But scenic motorways are also possible. No matter where you are on the road - this is the place to show your colours. And: with the top down, you can hear the fabulous naturally aspirated V8 as well.
Porsche 911 Cabriolet
Urgent spring-summer emergency? Just dial 9-1-1. What brings the cops to the scene in the United States provides us with the fast air-cooling police. And that's also known as the Porsche 911 Cabrio. It really doesn't matter whether you choose a classic or a modern, water-cooled 911. Because you are air-cooled yourself - in both cases.
The word "legend" is used rather inflationarily these days. But it is appropriate here, because the Mercedes SL is nothing else. And it brings a breath of fresh air to the luxury convertible market with its recently introduced iteration. Superior performance, perfect comfort and sportiness are just some of its qualities. By the way, purists and fans of the old SL can rejoice: the icon is returning to a soft top.
When we first saw the Polestar O₂, we couldn't breathe for a moment - but only until we thought about a sporty drive in the environmentally friendly electric roadster. Crisp lines, sporty performance and no roof over your head - heart (but also mind), what more could you want? In any case, the summery Swedish study in lightweight aluminium construction left a deep and sustainable impression on us.
