  • BMW M6 Convertible (2006) review

    Price:  £88,225

    25 September 2006 by Ben Barry

    What's this, an even more expensive BMW M6? It certainly is. At £86,400 the convertible costs nearly £5k more than the regular M6 coupe. Yes, it’s a premium price, but BMW has done the sums and knows...

  • Porsche 911 Targa 4S (2006) review

    Price:  £78,420

    21 September 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A 911 Targa? It’s just a Carrera with a super-size sunroof isn’t it? Pretty much. But it’s been a staple of the 911 range since the first appeared in the mid sixties. Back then it was a solution to...

  • Ford Focus Coupe-Cabriolet TDCi CC-2 (2006) review

    Price:  £17,795

    20 September 2006 by Peter Burgess

    Yawn! Another coupe-cabrio! We've had hundreds of them in 2006... Ford might be talking about the way forward, but it's pretty backward when it comes to spotting emerging market segments. It was late...

  • Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £19,580

    18 September 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Finally, a folding tin top that looks great and isn’t a Mercedes. Amen to that. Although the MX-5 is in a market of about one now that the MR2, Smart Roadster and MGF have vacated the two-seater...

  • VW Eos 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £19,370

    31 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    A drop top VW - how desirable. I take it the people's convertible is back? Yes and no. True, the Eos is from the people's car maker and it effectively replaces the old Golf cabriolet. But that...

  • Lotus Elise S (2006) review

    Price:  £24,500

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm stumped. It looks exactly the same as the Elise R, so why's it here? When Rover died the entry level, K-Series-powered Elise went with it along with a loyal customer base that couldn't stretch to...

  • Alfa Romeo Spider 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,250

    31 July 2006 by Gavin Green

    Just look at it. This has to be one of the sexiest cars on the road - regardless of price. Another beguilingly beautiful new Alfa Romeo, sparkling in the hot Italian summer sun... Pretty thing, isn't...

  • Volvo C70 T5 SE Lux (2006) review

    Price:  £33,250

    24 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Ah, a convertible. One for the hairdressers or a car that's hair-raising to drive? The jelly-like first generation C70 convertible was a Nicky Clarke special: it looked good and had a decent stereo...

  • BMW Z4 M Roadster (2006) review

    Price:  £43,795

    20 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    So, Munich's TVR is back? That's right, but this one's a bit more sophisticated than the Z3-based version from the late 1990s. It's got the current M3's multi-award-winning straight six and no trace...
