Using an undisclosed methodology (the press release says it arrives at “one comprehensive number assigned to a vehicle that represents an overall industry assessment from major automotive authorities.” However, nobody asked us) the site lists the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as the top topless car, the Audio A5 brings up the rear. Ranked third, the Ford Mustang is the only American car on that list of cars that bare all.

We never heard of Total Car Score before, and we guess the list attempts to change that. It would help if the list of first-rate ragtops could easily be found on the site. Even a highly scientific Google search comes up empty. Total Car Score was founded by Karl Brauer, formerly Edmunds online Editor in Chief.
