1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK230 Sport 2dr Convertible
This car handles superbly, accelerates quickly for a 4-cylinder, and is comfortable and fairly quiet with the top on at high speeds (watch that!). It takes about a minute to trade the quiet and safety of a hard top for the thrill of a convertible. Everyone except my wife loves this car (maybe it's those speeding tickets).
Mechanized retractable hard top. 0-60 in 6 seconds. Excellent cornering.
