Click above for a gallery of the Webasto LiGHT concept.

Webasto's LiGHT concept isn't due to be unveiled for another week, but the convertible and sunroof manufacturer from Deutschland has released the first image of its drop-top, two-seater.

Webasto tasked IED Automotive, associated with Istituto Europeo di Design, to create the concept and its pseudo-Italian flare is supposed to be inspired by the Fiat 124 Spider. While the design is attractive enough, the major party piece of the LiGHT concept is its frameless soft-top that features a heated glass rear window and is made from a polyurethane material that's both strong and lightweight. From an aesthetic point of view, when the roof is stowed away, it sits flush with the LiGHT's haunches, something that maintains the concept's lines while reducing wind disturbance and not detracting from boot space.

Check the gallery below for more angles of the LiGHT concept.

      It's not even really a "soft-top" more like a "flexible herd top" it is solid to maintain structural integrity, just with wedges cut out of it to enable the flexing needed to put the top up and down. It would have to be manual. It's like a really cheap superamerica.

      The top design is different.
      @ Sam Gross I totally agree this is more a like you describe a "Super America" type top.
      Nice Vehicle Design.
