OTHER OP­TIONS YOU MAY CON­SIDER

Motor (Australia) - - BUYING A MODERN CLASSIC -

BMW Z4

IF YOU’RE after nat­u­rally as­pi­rated six-cylin­der acous­tics, then a fel­low Ger­man could be the an­swer. The 195kW/315Nm 3.0-litre six (E85) was of­fered with man­ual or auto and pro­pelled the Z4 to 100km/h in around 5.7sec. An ideal al­ter­na­tive.

MAZDA MX-5

YOU SHOULDN’T over­look any of the gen­er­a­tions if you want drop-top fun. The Oz-de­vel­oped turbo SP (only 100 made) can be had for the price of a 2.7litre Boxster, while the turbo 1.8-litre four in the SE is an­other al­ter­na­tive to the atmo MX-5 sta­ples.

AUDI TT CABRIOLET

SOME call it a hair­dresser’s car, but some TTs of­fer de­cent top­less thrills. The TTS, with its boosted four and all-wheel drive, is a sweet spot (S tronic and man­ual). The 250kW five-pot TTRS, with its epic sound­track, is rea­son to stretch the bud­get.
