Hire a BMW Cabriolet for a Day
Joy ride through the Mother City in a lightning quick Bimmer convertible rental
It is said that happiness is only real when shared. Well, someone at BMW certainly believes so: they’ve gone and built a joy machine that you can share with three other people.
Introducing the BMW 335i Cabriolet, the perfect horse and chariot to gallop through Cape Town’s fairy tale-like scenery. When the sun shines in the Mother City, there’s no shortage of happy endings, and whether you’re basking alongside beautiful people at one of the many beaches or cruising through the breathtaking Cape Winelands, the best way to make it all the more magical is in the belly of a gorgeous four-seater drop-top.
About the BMW 335i Cabriolet
The convertible 335i is one of the fastest cars made by BMW. It has a fantastic 3.0 litre, twin-turbocharged engine that not only makes that glorious straight-6 howl, but that also propels you, your friends, your loved ones and the car to an incredible speed very quickly (it sprints to 100km/h in less than six seconds). In short, you will never get tired of putting your foot down in this machine.
Of course, with the Cabrio, no effort is required to go topless in Cape Town. Simply press and hold one button, and the magic of German engineering will open the car’s hard-top roof to the heavens. Needless to say, it’s a car of many talents, transforming from a coupe to a convertible at the flip of a switch.
Similarly, with a ride that’s both solid and nimble, one of the best times to take a drive is on a warm starry night; pump up the 13-speaker sound system and make your own stargazing soundtrack.
Lastly, the handling is absolutely superb in this car, it’s right up there with the best sports cars from any manufacturer. Stick it in gear, choose your road and let the fun begin, all of course with the wind in your hair.
