Timepieces: The watches to wear this year
The 458 Spider’s unique hard top doesn’t really deform because of the pressure field that builds up at high speeds either in no regular matter.
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 an element made possible by its aluminium deform because of the pressure field that less than a traditional hard top and 25 kg less than a fabric regular version.
