£59k but with manual roof operation

Post by colin565 on Mon 21 Mar 2016 - 1:24

Saw one of these on the road yesterday, its a 4C Alfa Spider min price before options is £59,000, looked great, but....

Have a look at how they remove the roof, think we are far better off with the Wind's motorised roof Very Happy

UPdate: The Americans have already designed a removable targa hard top for it, for their market, which is better than that hand folding dish cloth roof. 

You have to admire the Yanks and their aftermarket car parts injunuity.

PS...I remember when I owned my Honda Delsol (CRX), we had to make do with a removable targa metal roof section, wheras the Americans could order a removable targa glass roof section instead.

Been reading the reviews on the car itself and some Youtube videos of it in action, and it is something to consider if you win the Lottery, as it does have the 'Targa roof style' of the Wind.

Downside is the roof as mentioned, for that money should have been motorized and metal, rather than ragtop. 

Also the steering wheel is weird, with a flat bottom, making it rather bumpy as you rotate it.

Would not say no to it though, if handed one  Very Happy

They are all copying the back of the Wind now with metal behind and above the headrests. I see Mazdas MX5 is now coming out with the Mazda MX5 RF, which has flying buttresses at the back, but the folding roof is very complex....
