Cool Convertibles for Summer

2018 Ferrari 488 Spider. 0-60 in about 2.9 seconds. 3.9 litre, DOHC 32-valve twin-turbo V-8 engine making 661 horsepower @8000 RPM, 561 lb-ft @3000 RPM, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Base is $ 285k but best figure $ 400k.
2018 Rolls Royce Dawn. Expensive at $416,100, but that's part of its hotness. Also heavy at 5,776 pounds and it's fast, acheiving 0-60 in 4.3 seconds via a Twin-turbo DOHC aluminum 6.6 liter V-12 engine with direct injection and an eight-speed ZF automatic shift.
2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata. It ain't exactly a Ferrari but you could buy 11 or so MX-5s for what you pay for one Ferrari 488 Spider, so the MX-5 has moxy. It starts at around $26,000.
