Top 10: Convertibles for £10,000 to buy in 2021

Jaguar XK8

Launched in 1996 as a replacement for the classic XJS, the XK8 (also available as a coupe) was a superb looking convertible, with hints of E-type combined with oodles of style and sophistication. Under the bonnet sat a 290bhp 4.0-litre V8, boosted to a whopping 370bhp the following year when the supercharged XKR arrived. 4.2-litre versions (with 300-400bhp) replaced the originals in 2002.

Around £10,000 will buy a decent, low-mileage XK8 Convertible from the early noughties; or you can pay less than half that for a useable early example that’s seen more use.

Always amazed the TR7 in DHC form never makes these list, but maybe not as possibly the prices would go up and spoil the fun for those in the know, it wasn't the best selling TR for nothing.
