Topless in summer: our pick of the best modern classic convertibles & second-hand roadsters

Summer is just around the corner and if there’s one thing we can be sure of is that the warmer weather will mean the start of the convertible buying season in the UK.

The good news is that with such an abundance of good used convertibles on the market, you don’t have to roll in the dosh to carve your own piece of drop-top fun. Believe it or not, there are plenty of good used convertibles out there that will set you back pretty reasonable sums.

Don’t you believe us? Well, read on and we’ll prove it. These are the best used convertibles for under £10,000.

Audi TT Roadster (Mk2)

It’s fair to say that the Audi TT has taken a stick during its lifetime, but the news that the TT won’t be replaced when it says goodbye is still a bit sad, as the current third-gen car is quite a bit well, and the second-gen version we have here was a corker too.

No, the TT isn’t as sharp as a Porsche or Lotus of its day, but that’s not the point; Instead, the TT offers sporty convertible driving with the reassuring stability that comes with truckloads of grip, combined with a smart interior, crisp styling and the kind of effortless usability that makes it a joy to stroll around in day after day.

Unlike some roadsters, you also have multiple engine options to choose from, and there’s even a diesel if you’re going to go mega miles. We’d advise against it, however, as the TT feels a lot happier with a petrol engine; The 2.0-liter turbo offers an excellent balance between efficiency and performance. Also, avoid larger wheels if you can, as they make the TT’s already firm ride even harder to tolerate.
