If you love to throw the top down on your ride and feel the wind in your hair, there are few more breathtaking routes than the California coast. Whether you want to experience one of National Geographic’s 50 drives of a lifetime by cruising from Monterey to Morro Bay or fancy taking on the full shebang and driving from Del Norte to San Diego, an Audi Convertible guarantees a sweet ride. Here are five models that will get you from A to B in style.

Audi R8 Spyder Convertible

If you’re looking for unadulterated performance, you can’t go wrong with an Audi R8 Spyder Convertible. Hit the road in this stylish two-seater to experience the Cali coast in a memorable way. Grab the 2015 model with a V8 engine, or opt for an extra power boost in the form of the pulse-pounding V10 version. When it’s time to drop the lid, you can do so on the move — the acoustic roof folds at speeds up to 31 miles per hour.

Audi TT Roadster Quattro Convertible

Power up the TT’s turbocharged TFSI engine, crank up your favorite tune on the BOSE sound system, and get ready to soak up the stunning Pacific views. Enjoy the exquisite freedom of top-down driving and the joy of instant summer at the touch of a button. Just like the R8 Spyder, the two-seat TT Roadster Convertible Quattro features an acoustic folding roof that’s operational on the move.

Audi RS 5 Cabriolet

Two-seater soft tops are almost made for coastline driving, but if you need a little more space from your ride, you needn’t miss out on the fun. The 4.2-liter V8 engine and 450 horsepower on the four-seater Audi RS 5 Cabriolet deliver a breathtaking performance. When it’s time to top up your tan, the strong yet lightweight top folds neatly into the trunk in a mere 17 seconds.

Audi S5 Quattro Convertible

Breathing in the fresh air of the West Coast isn’t just for those who have upwards of $50,000 in spare change. A few years and several thousand miles spell a discount of almost 50 percent on the S5: for around $20,000, you could be behind the wheel of a practical yet pacey drop-top. You can drop the cloth hood on the Audi S5 2009 in a flat 15 seconds.

Audi A3 Cabriolet

The Brits named the Audi A3 Convertible the 2014 Convertible of the Year, so you have good reason to get excited about it rolling into American showrooms for the first time in 2015. Be one of the first to drop the traditional soft cloth top, and put this award-winning ride through its paces on the California coast. Rock-steady handling and a turbo-charged 2.0-liter engine add to the fun.

Hit the Pacific coast in one of the stylish top-down rides from Audi, and the weather is not the only thing that will give you a sunny disposition.
