Video: Ferrari 458 Spider roof revealed

Updated: 


When Ferrari revealed the 458 Spider yesterday, the biggest surprise was that the manufacturer had opted for a metal folding roof rather than a featherlight fabric option.

Without any photos of it in action, we also weren't exactly sure how it worked either. Thankfully, Ferrari has since fixed that with a video of the car removing its cap like an urchin in church.

There isn't much elegance to the mechanism, but it's quick and neat, and the 458 looks finger-licking good topless. Click below to watch.
