Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabriolet

We don't know whether or not the PT Cruiser Cabriolet will become a future classic, but one thing is certain - it wasn't much cop as a new car. Based on the already oddball PT Cruiser, the drop-top version took an awkward design and shoehorned a convertible roof on to it. The result was not a cohesive one.

Aside from the near-useless boot, three-door design and terrible rear visibility, the PT Cruiser creaked round corners like an old galleon. Unsurprisingly it was never a big seller, not helped by the fact that originally it was only left-hand drive. Right-hand drive models arrived in 2006.

What about the Jaguar X type 2.5 Auto all wheel drive?
Great to drive surely a future classic.
