  • Interesting solution for convertible visibility issues with buttresses

    Saw this originally posted on jalopnik.com, here is an excerpt from the article and a link to the full content

    originally. Posted on Jalopnik.com “The 720S Spider has both head fairings and buttresses in the rear (to aid with rollover protection structure and aerodynamics), but here’s the thing—those buttresses are actually gmade of darkened panes of glass. So while they are functional, they also don’t inhibit over-the-shoulder visibility because they’re clear.”

      That is a very interesting solution. McLaran’s are great at lighter weight innovation.

        Are they strictly cosmetic?
