rain....imagine driving at 65 mph
in the rain
Cabriolets don't leak under either condition
The Cabriolet has integral radio console - glove box - AC/heat outlets - power
rollup windows-dash crash pad ...
the Speedster has none of these
Our Cabriolets have
power rollup windows that seal very effectively
against the top and windshield post
Standard Speedsters don't have
any type of rollup windows. They have
removable curtains that store in the trunk and don't
seal against anything.
"Why Do Speedsters Leak"
the Cabriolet has a
manually operated 5
bow scissor action taut fold down top that seals
positively against the windshield header, windshield
post, and side glass.
SAS now offers an
optional Power Activated Top
VW Speedster top is a 3
bow lay back type that leaks water and air profusely
at the windshield header and side curtains .
After 55 years of
existence no one has found a cure though many have
tried and failed......Until now.
Feature ....... SAS

you 4+" lower
