Want to impress the ladies? Of course, and these cars will do the job.
Today’s the day where you’re supposed to impress her the most. Sometimes a box of chocolates and a bouquet of roses just won't do. After all, chances are that’s what you bought her last year. And the year before that. We want to help you do better this year and in the future with this list of five super sexy convertibles ideal for a night out on the town or a weekend getaway. Can’t afford to buy any of these? Hey, there are exotic car rental agencies out there for this very purpose. She deserves more than plain old flowers and chocolate.
This one is a no-brainer. You can’t go wrong if you pull into the drive behind the wheel of the new Aston Martin DB11 Volante. We happen to be of the belief this convertible was designed for occasions/holidays such as today. Not only do you get the privilege of driving a 500-hp rolling work of art, but you’ll be making quite a statement as well. She’ll know you went the extra mile for her and that matters. What if she’s not into cars, let alone British-built grand tourers like this? Have no worries because the DB11 is the perfect introduction. Tip: if you need a bit of privacy, the top requires just 16 seconds to close and can be remotely operated from the key.
You’re going to want the one and only Jaguar F-Type convertible if your Valentine doesn’t mind causing a scene when out in public. By that we mean the sexy Jag’s loud exhaust system, particularly when that 5.0-liter supercharged V8 is under the hood. She knows cars well enough, but is not necessarily an expert. Important thing is that she knows what a Jaguar signifies and will be proud of you for being aware of that. A Jaguar is all about emotions and the F-Type convertible is perhaps the most emotional of the current lineup. See, you’re in touch with your emotions. She digs that.
It’s a Ferrari. Enough said. No matter who you are, a mere mention of the name Ferrari automatically places you higher. The brand new Ferrari Portofino could be extremely hard to obtain at the moment given the fact it hasn’t even officially gone on sale. But if you’re connected to the powers that be in Maranello, Italy, you might, just might, manage to pull off receiving an early build show car for the night or, better yet, the weekend ahead. The Portofino, like its California and California T predecessors, is intended to attract new buyers to the iconic brand, specifically women. This is a chance to show your feminine side as well as your powerful Italian connections. You can’t go wrong.
Okay, by this point all of the convertibles we’ve suggested are not exactly cheap. We get that not everyone is made of money (we certainly are not), so here’s something just about everyone can afford. The Fiat 124 Spider. It’s also Italian and has a certain elegance to its fine lines. Yes, save for its engine and exterior styling changes, the 124 Spider is nearly identical to the Mazda MX-5 Miata, but the fact it has that famous Italian marque’s emblem stamped on its hood gives its extra points for today. She’ll appreciate your efforts to impress despite budget constraints. Money isn’t everything, you know. Character is.
Last up is the Audi A5/S5 convertible. Pricier than the Fiat but still a bit less expensive than the Jag, the Audi could wind up being the ideal choice. It’s a beautiful car from every angle, has more than enough power available for you, the driver, to enjoy, and an abundance of luxuries features for her. The A5 and its more powerful S5 sibling are convertibles that are both elegant and refined. Whether it’s a night out on the town, an evening at the country club, or just an ocean side highway cruise, you’re going to be just fine. She's fully aware of your excellent taste. You don’t feel the need to show off with something like those British-built exotics or an Italian supercar, but you’re in a position to provide more than what the Fiat has to offer.
