Now that summer has finally arrived I thought now maybe the perfect time to compile a list of some of the finest classics for the season. Naturally, they all have to be cabriolets!
Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1

Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider
The Spider is one of the most iconic cars to ever come out of Italy. The simple yet elegant design combined with excellent driving dynamics has made them a very sought after car.

Along with some beautiful cars, a boat would have to make up part of the collection. Another beautiful Italian design the Riva has always been associated with the jet set and it is easy to see why. First introduced in 1950 it is probably as the most iconic boat designs in history.
