Like our Mk4 Roadster and ’33 Hot Rod, a lot of customers have asked for a high end, truly all weather capable soft top for their 818 so we went to the very best to have a custom designed soft top made exclusively for Factory Five Racing customers. This new soft top is manufactured by one of the best hot rod soft top guys anywhere (Rod Tops by DTS Enterprises). The design incorporates all stainless steel fasteners, collapsible tubular construction with double lined canvas, and custom bag that fits in the trunk. The top design only requires two holes in the body, one behind each door for the main hoop. No lift-a-dots are used for this top. It has been tested by our guys on the highway. It is simply the finest soft top available and while it’s expensive, it’s worth every penny.
The soft top costs $2,499 and the optional zip-in windows cost $499. Both are now available to order on our parts catalog.
Factory Five’s Director of Engineering Jesper Ingerslev demonstrates how to install the new soft top in the video above.
