“We are proud to contribute a system which helps enhance the driving experience of the Fiat 500C,” said Magna Closures and Magna Mirrors president, John O’Hara.

“Reaching a milestone such as this one reflects our team’s commitment and the overall partnership we have with Fiat.”

The 500c features a dual-layer multi-position power-retractable cloth top which can be operated at vehicle speeds of up to 50 mph.

The folding, soft-top system has a lightweight multi-material frame made of steel, stainless steel, aluminium and glass fibre-reinforced polyamide.

Over the frame Magna secures a fabric and a rear window made of toughened glass. Magna also developed the robot used to mount the roof system onto the vehicle.The
