    Who came up with the soft top for this F50 looks great, was it Ferrari?
    Here's a first look at the new Murci spider with the soft top up.

    Does anyone have a pic of the 550-B with the soft-top???

    Is it me, or does that Murci top look like it's gonna catch a lot of air and rip out?

    The soft top came with every f50, although I think you can go over 100MPH with it on otherwise you exceed recomendations.

    You know.... Ferrari did a car for over $330k with a top so ugly that I burned all my photos. So don't pick on Lambo, these tops are just for a quick rain shower.

    How much did these sell for new ??? Car sure looks good without top.

    Ferrari needs to make a real 575M spider ..... I can't understand why they don't do it to prop up lagging 575 sales?

    Agreed...
    We don't need that system.
     
  14. Murci looks absolutly stunning but lambo better change that top it looks horrible and it looks like the buttons in the back will scratch the paint for sure.

    Murci's Barchetta's will never see the top on. They look great with it off, unlike the Hideous 550. I myself would go for the coupe.
     
  16. I guess you right allan kind of like the previous SL class the softop was just for emergencys for rain etc and you had a hardtop for winter etc. Murci will be drop top unless it rains etc. I hope they make a hardtop cover you can put on.


    I also noticed clear rear lights and the color on the car is stunning.

    The 550-B with soft-top up is simply HIDEOUS!

    I remember, when I worked at Ogner, we were all so damn excited when we heard our 550-B was arriving that day. The Wagoneer truck arrived, the driver got out, opened the back of the trailer. Myself, three other salespeople, and our General Manager were sitting there, drooling, waiting for this new beast to finally reveal itself to us.

    It came rolling of the truck, and we all looked at the fugliness that was the 550-B with soft-top up (came shipped with the top up), looked at each other, and said absolutely nothing. What a nut-buster that ugly damn car was.

    Of course, once we got it into the service department and dropped the top, it looked much better, but still.....that thing is simply horrifying.
