Rent a BMW Convertible for a Day

Belt along Cape Town’s glorious roads in a four-seater Bimmer convertible


What makes a perfect trip to one of Cape Town’s world famous beaches or lauded wine estates even better? You, your sunglasses and a BMW 650i convertible car hire.

Think of it this way. If, in fact, the   old maxim ‘happiness is only real when shared’ is true, it goes without saying that conquering the Mother City in a joy machine built to whisk around not two but four people is the ideal way to make a stay on Africa’s most southwestern tip that much more unforgettable. 

About the BMW 650i Cabriolet

The BMW 650i Cabriolet is without doubt one of the German company’s finest creations. A mighty 4.4-litre V8, the engine makes a wonderful growl which fills the cabin as you accelerate. You’ll never get tired of putting your foot down and feeling that surge of power: the six-series easily canters to 100km/h from standstill in five seconds flat, and at full throttle, it gallops to a license-losing top speed of 250km/h; although, we wouldn’t recommend proving that.

But while the stylish Bimmer is, at its core, a sports car, it comes with all the added benefits and amenities of a luxury tourer. The best part about the big convertible is you can share the top-down experience with three people and not just one, as there are two comfortable, sumptuous leather seats in the back, with very decent cargo space for all your luggage.

Needless to say, pack the drop-top full of your favourite friends and loved ones, put some good music on the high-end sound system and cruise out to the beaches or the wine farms, taking in all the gorgeous scenery Cape Town has to offer.
