175 kmph doesnt seem an acceptable figure.
A fall of more than 100kmph just for the top down.
Who would purchase a supercar with a soft top then.
Must be 175mph

With the manual assembly soft top , drivers are limited to 99 mph. Any faster and the roof comes apart.
With the soft top assembled and up , top speed is 206 mph and with roof down, about 190 - 195 mph

So you pay more for the Spyder and get to do lower speeds....not meant for a true enthusiast. I'm not talking in terms Indian soil though.

The 0 - 100 kmph time remains the same brother. And how many times would one be going up to ~200 mph?
Had it not been India , I would have bought the roadster perhaps.
