Las Vegas, Nevada – August 10, 2017

The retrofit SmartTOP roof module for the Ferrari 488 Spider is now available. The newest development from the company Mods4cars provides crafty additional functions thereby facilitating the everyday use of the convertible. „With the new SmartTOP for Ferrari 488, we now support 5 Ferrari models,“ explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow. For Ferrari models 360, F430 Spider, California and 458 Spider SmartTOP modules are already offered.

The SmartTOP soft top control is retrofitted in the vehicle. After installation, the roof can be opened and closed from a distance using the existing car key. Pressing a key combination on the existing remote control activates the convertibles top movement. „This allows our customers to open their convertible tops while they are moving towards their vehicle,“ says PR spokesman Sven Tornow. There is no need to change the remote control for this function.

In addition, one-touch operation of the convertible top is also made possible while driving. With the installed SmartTOP module, only a tap on the soft top button in the interior is required. The convertible top movement is then executed automatically. This saves time and the driver has both hands back on the steering wheel quicker.

The SmartTOP provides additional features: position of the windows can be determined after the convertibles top movement. All windows can be opened and closed via the remote control. The functions can be configured according to personal requirements.

Starting or stopping the engine does not interrupt the convertible top movement. Thanks to a USB port attached to the SmartTOP module, it can be connected to the local PC and programmed. Programming can also be done directly in the vehicle.

A plug-and-play cable kit included in delivery provides for easy installation. The connection between the SmartTOP module and the vehicle electronics is made by simply plugging in the perfectly fitting connectors. No cables are cut through, which means that a traceless dismantling is possible at any time.

The company Mods4cars has been producing its smart cabriolet modules since 2002. The following vehicle brands are supported: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and Volkswagen. SmartTOP soft top controls are also available for the Ferrari models 360 Spider, F430 Spider, 458 Spider and California.

The comfort control for the Ferrari 488 Spider is available for 339,00 Euro + tax.
