Your Dream Luxury Cars is Here
The 458 Spider’s unique hard top doesn’t deform because of the pressure field that builds up at high speeds either. Cabin space and comfort are actually improved thanks to the roof’s double curvature, an element made possible by its aluminium construction but impossible to achieve with a traditional canvas soft top.
The retractable hard top’s structure is incredibly light too, thanks to a simple yet ingenious mechanism. It actually weighs 40 kg less than a traditional hard top and 25 kg less than a fabric version.
Its simplicity also ensures its speedy and graceful deployment as well as ensuring it is extremely compact and aerodynamically efficient. As the two sections of the roof rotate simultaneously, the 458 Spider’s hard top takes just 14 seconds to deploy or retract.
