Coupe Hard Top

I saw this a few years ago and it's taken me this long to track it down again.

A coupe hard top designed for the French Barchetta club.

Two sample pics attached.

Full pictures here

Re: Coupe Hard Top

I'm not sure if I like it, but I suppose it gives you more space. It's grown on me a bit already....

Re: Coupe Hard Top

I love the way it looks from the side but when I saw the pic from the very rear I was dissapointed. I think the original FIAT produced prototype was much better.

PS: The hard top I have is the best!

Re: Coupe Hard Top

Hmmmm, not sure - I REALLY like the one that FIAT knocked out but this one looks a bit 'kit-like'..........

Re: Coupe Hard Top

Great to see such a big mod on a B but needs a bit more work if you ask me.

Re: Coupe Hard Top

Needs some more detailed finishing. Looks like it is poorly hand made.

Re: Coupe Hard Top

I think i would lower the screen and the glass in the windows so that you can bring the top down lower. Something a bit more like the red one.

Re: Coupe Hard Top

Who cares what the Frenchies do? Didn't Fiat make the prototype in silver/grey?
