Sales of open-top cars are currently running at double those of last year's volumes, according to a major national used car retailer.*

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".
