The Mercedes-Benz SL has always carried the torch for the luxury-convertible market.
It's seen some competition from the BMW 6-Series, which is now much more lithe and attractive after last year's redesign.
The BMW is also offered in both coupe and convertible models, as well as a high-performance M6 edition to take on Mercedes' AMG models.
The Maserati GranTurismo and Jaguar XK are the beauties of the group, attractive both in motion and parked.The Maserati also has a usable back seat, and there's legitimate power in both cars–especially in the Jaguar XKR models.
For a more technical performer, there's always the Porsche 911, available in rear- and all-wheel-drive models.
