New Cabriolets For 2013
Citroën DS3 Cabrio DSport Plus and Jaguar F-TYPE 5.0i V8 S
This year's new cabriolets are more thrilling than winning the lottery. The Citroën DS3 Cabrio DSport Plus, for starters, is popular thanks to its tremendous lines, chrome logo, and LED lights. These help it stand out and that is important in its fashion conscious sector. Furthermore its canvas roof - that operates at up to 75mph - opens or closes in a fair sixteen seconds. It can also move to an intermediate position to partially cover the cabin. This top of the range trim has a 1.6-litre petrol engine that propels 155bhp through six-speed transmission to the front wheels. It therefore hits 62mph in 8.2 seconds so this lifestyle statement is fast too. This complements its rock-solid handling that inspires confidence. All from only £19,675, so there is no need to win the lottery to pay for it. The Jaguar F-TYPE 5.0i V8 S, in contrast, costs £79,950 so you might need a few lucky numbers. This top-end trim is legendary even before its launch as it is the spiritual successor to the E-TYPE. It also produces 500bhp, hits 62mph in 4.3 seconds, and is capable of 186mph. Excellent. This iconic plaything also has purposeful styling which include features such as the fold-flat exterior handles. The cabin feels fantastic too thanks to its quality construction, sporty look, and the view over the bulging bonnet.
