The chassis of carbon fiber “Monocage II-S” is specific to the version spider. It is derived from the structure “Monocage II” of the coupe, but doesn’t have the “spine” of central that runs from the front to the back above the passenger compartment. The stiffness of the carbon fiber allows you to move reinforcements in spite of the disappearance of the fixed roof.

Quite to the contrary.
