The Audi Cabriolet was one of those rare cars that found its second wind after a few years on sale, just like the Mazda MX5 did more recently. It arrived to a small audience of admirers, but its sales skyrocketed when a certain Princess (Diana) made one her personal transport. She and the car were filmed arriving at her gym, seemingly every night, on the evening news a few years back. For Audi, the publicity was worth a million TV commercials.
It was a car that didn't really fit in with Audi's familiar Vorsprung durch Technik image. It had a relatively low count of technology (no quattro versions, for example) but what it did have was style with a capital 'S'. The mid-Nineties Diana-follower sales boom now means that well maintained examples are around in good numbers. For the used buyer, the choice has never been better.
This is a car designed for posing and there's nothing wrong with that. As a stylish convertible, it can mix it with Mercedes and Jaguars of the same era but show it a winding road and you may be wishing you'd thought about an MGF or BMW Z3. For wafting about on a sunny day, rather than blasting from bend to bend, this is the car to have.
