Default Convertible possibility?

I was driving the family home from California a few days ago in our GMC van, good view of car tops... When passing a Mini Cooper convertible I was amazed to see that it had a top where just the front quarter or so was folded back upon the back half of the top. Or rolled back or something... It looked like a cool option, sort of like having a sunroof, for when it may not be optimal convertible weather but you'd still like that open air feeling. Anyway, is this some option that a convertible top shop would do or is it just something Mini does? I'd really like to have a top like this on my PT!

That is the way mini comes from the factory.

That's what I was afraid of, I would imagine that it would involve some serious restructuring to modify a PT to do the same. Still, I'd like to take a close look at the Mini's top and see exactly how they make this happen.
