Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Roof

The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport might just be the most beautiful car in the world, and almost certainly is the most technologically advanced production car in the world, but its temporary roof, used when it starts to rain unexpectedly, is what impresses me the most. Just take a look at it. The roof quite literally unfolds like an umbrella! I suppose it’s probably too big to be used as a pedestrian umbrella, but what a remarkable and elegant solution.
Update: there’s a video of it (turn your speakers down first – includes loud music for some reason). The roof is visible at about 1:00 in the video.

    Issue: if it *is* raining and I park outside… What happens to my priceless auto’s interior if I walk away with the only protection it has? I think the roof umbrella is better positioned as a parasol?
