The rather clever patented new 720S Spider electric carbon fibre roof system delivers the fastest-operating time in the supercar class and is available glazed with an electrochromic glass panel that can rapidly switch between tinted and transparent.

The light, stiff and extremely strong Monocage II-S carbon fibre core features an integrated rollover protection structure (ROPS to its friends) and therefore needs no additional strengthening over it’s roofed coupe sibling. Clever eh?
