There are some marketing photos of trekking with all sorts up there but that's a bit of a fantasy, if the roof had a proper rating ie 100kg and you could get a 150 PS engine then sure. Plus if you have the glass roof you'll spoil the view Consider a tow bar IMHO!?
It's a good point (but on a point of accuracy the max. roof load is actually 60kg)

I can't find any reference to a max. speed though... where have you got that from please.

Thanks.
