Abstract
(DE)
Die Erfindung betrifft ein öffnungsfähiges Fahrzeugdach mit einem Verdeck (12), welches in seiner Schließstellung (Fig. 1) einen Fahrzeuginnenraum (13) überdeckt und in seiner Öffnungsstellung (Fig. 4) in einer heckseitig angeordneten und durch einen verlagerbaren Deckel (20) abgedeckten Verdeckaufnahme verstaut ist, wobei in Schließstellung (Fig. 1) des Verdecks (12) an den beiden seitlichen Verdeckrandbereichen finnenartig nach hinten auslaufende 'Verdeckfinnen' (14) ausgebildet sind, deren untere Bereiche durch den Deckel (20) miteinander verbunden sind. Um bei einem solchen Finnenverdeck einfachere Öffnungs- bzw. Schließvorgänge zu ermöglichen, ist vorgesehen, dass die Breite des Deckels (20) variierbar ist, zumindest zu Beginn des Öffnungsvorgangs des Verdecks (12) im Wesentlichen lediglich den lichten Abstand zwischen den Verdeckfinnen (14) überbrückt und in Öffnungsstellung (Fig. 4) des Verdecks (12) demgegenüber vergrößert ist.
(EN)
The invention relates to an openable vehicle roof comprising a soft top (12) which, in its closed position (fig. 1), covers the vehicle interior (13), and in its open position (fig. 4) is stored in a soft top storage area arranged in the rear and is covered by a displaceable cover (20). When the soft top is in the closed position (fig. 1), fin-shaped, soft top flying buttresses (14) which extend towards the rear are embodied on both lateral sides edge areas of said soft top, the lower areas of said soft top flying buttresses being interconnected by said cover (20). In order to be able to open and close said type of soft top provided with flying buttresses in a simple manner, the width of the cover (20) can be varied, at least at the beginning of the opening step of the soft top (12), essentially only a small space between the soft top flying buttresses (14) being covered, which is then increased in relation thereto when the soft top (12) is in the open position (fig. 4).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un toit ouvrant de véhicule, comportant une capote (12) qui recouvre, en position fermée (fig.1), l'habitacle du véhicule (13) et est rangée, lorsqu'elle est en position ouverte, dans un compartiment de capote situé à l'arrière et recouvert par un capot (20) déplaçable. En position fermée (fig.1) de la capote (12), il est formé des 'arceaux de capote' (14), s'étendant à la manière d'ailerons vers l'arrière, au niveau des deux zones marginales de la capote. Les zones inférieures des arceaux de capote sont interconnectées par l'intermédiaire du capot (20). Afin de permettre, pour ce type de capote à arceaux, des processus d'ouverture et de fermeture simplifiés, il est prévu que la largeur du capot (20) soit variable, qu'au moins au début du processus d'ouverture de la capote (12) essentiellement seul l'espace intérieur entre les arceaux de la capote (14) soit recouvert et qu'il soit par contre augmenté en position d'ouverture (fig.4) de la capote.
