As of now, the retrofit SmartTOP convertible top control by Mods4cars is available for the McLaren 12C Spider. It allows the roof to be opened and closed while driving via One-Touch.
Las Vegas, Nevada – March 29, 2018
The company Mods4cars now has a SmartTOP top control for the McLaren 12C Spider. The retrofit cabriolet module is installed into the vehicle to make the operation of the roof top more comfortable. „We are pleased to announce that in addition to the McLaren 650S we can now also offer a SmartTOP module for the McLaren 12C Spider,“ explains PR spokesman Sven Tornow.
After installing the SmartTOP module, the McLaren driver is able to open and close the top while driving, with One-Touch. A tap of the console key is sufficient and the movement of the hood is carried out automatically. The driver therefore has both hands back on the steering wheel faster.
In addition, the soft top can be operated remotely via the existing vehicle key. A key combination on the vehicles remote control sets the hood in motion. „The SmartTOP customer can open their top as they move toward their vehicle and start their drive open. A time saver!“ continues Sven Tornow.
In addition to these two main functions, the SmartTOP has other additional clever features: windows can be opened and closed separately via the vehicle key. It can be adjusted as to whether only the front or all windows are to be closed after the roof opens. The rear window can be opened and closed by One-Touch.
Upon customer request, the function „button reversal“ was added. Thanks to it, the operating direction of the top button can be inverted. Starting and stopping the engine does not interrupt the current top movement. The SmartTOP module can be completely deactivated if required.
All functions can be programmed according to personal wishes. Thanks to a USB port attached to the module, the configuration is easily made via the PC / Mac. In addition, the USB port enables software updates and feature enhancements to be installed, which are provided, free of charge, by Mods4cars.
For easy installation, the SmartTOP roof module comes with a plug-and-play cable set. The specially developed adapter has connectors in OEM quality and ensures a simple connection between vehicle electronics and SmartTOP module. No cables need to be cut, ensuring a traceless removal is possible at any time.
Since 2001, Mods4cars has manufactured their SmartTOP roof controls. From Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen to Volvo, are all the common convertible and Roadster models supported.
The comfort control for the McLaren 12C is available for 339,00 Euro + tax.

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 from the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.
The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.
Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.
The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.
