Sales of open-top cars are currently running at double those
of last year's volumes, according to a major national used car
ACF Car Finance Limited says the recent spell of warm weather is tempting record
numbers of motorists to put their faith in a long, dry and sunny summer.
But the passion for topless models isn't being led by younger image-conscious male
drivers, says the company's Group Buying Manager Leyton Cooper.
The majority of customers for convertibles, he reports, fall within the 30-45 year
old age band, and comprise a higher percentage of women than those who buy
conventional fixed-roof cars.
"Early summer is always a prime time for open-top sales and right now we’re
constantly replenishing stock to keep abreast of demand," said Leyton.
"Popular makes include the Peugeot 207cc and Vauxhall Astra TwinTop - and those
offering the best back seat space are most sought after, suggesting that many are
being bought for family use.
"The days when a soft top meant putting up with draughts and leaks have long
gone," he added. "Modern convertibles are as snug as fixed-tops when you don't
want the breeze in your hair".
