Four great convertibles for top-down and fun motoring

Four great convertibles for top-down and fun motoring
Classic Car Auctions are offering four fabulous open-top sports cars in their forthcoming auction on the 5th October at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

Whether it is a Porsche, Jaguar, Audi or a BMW that is your chosen marque, these four superb cars will offer some great wind in your hair motoring.

The Porsche 911 is a 2003 Carrera C4 Tiptronic S in excellent condition and superbly maintained. With just 36,000 miles on the clock and supported by a comprehensive history file, this is a well-maintained low mileage Porsche. Presented in Lapis Blue with a Graphite Grey full ruffled interior this car is sensibly guided at £23,000 to £28,000 to maximise its full potential.

Launched in 1996 to replace the XJS, the Jaguar XK8 range was joined by the more powerful XKR in 1998. In 2002 the XKR received the 4.2-litre engine along with further revisions. BY 2006 the last of the X100 cars were produced with Stratstone Mayfair purchasing the remaining 30 cars and creating with Jaguar the StratstoneEdition. This particular 2006 model is one of just 14 of these 30 cars that were convertibles and is a very highly specified car. With just two-family owners since 2007, 86,000 miles, this is a very desirable limited-edition car at £16,000 to £20,000 and will be very sought after by collectors and Jaguar enthusiasts.

The Audi 80 Cabriolet introduced in the early 1990s was Audis first soft-top, which soon gained a reputation for being one of the classiest ways to travel if you wanted open-top motoring for four people. CCA have a stunning 1995 80 Cabrioletpresented in red with a grey leather interior. With three owners from new and an incredible 33,000 miles on the clock, this 2.6 V6 open-top powerhouse at £6,000 to £8,000 will make a fabulous purchase.

Our next four-seater drop-top is the 2004 BMW 330Ci Sport with the Individual Package. Presented in the very desirable Estoril Blue with a soft grey leather interior, extras include the Xenon headlights, heated seats and a Harmon Kardon stereo. With just three former keepers from new and 60,000 miles on the clock, this BMW is estimated at £5,000 to £7,000 and comes with an MOT until June 2020 and a recent service was undertaken in August this year.

Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions auction manager commented: “We have some really superb cars being consigned and these are four cracking open top sports cars. The Audi 80 is lovely and very striking in red and the Jaguar is a very special car and will generate a lot of interest.”
