Carbon Fibre in Motorsport
Also Carbon fibre, boasting one-fifth the weight and all the strength of steel, has become popular in motorsport, where removing weight is just as important as adding power. The lighter a vehicle is, the better it will accelerate, stop and turn. Lighter vehicles are also more fuel efficient vehicles. Carbon fibre is used extensively in the construction of high-end race cars, such as those seen in Formula 1 and WRC.
Carbon Fibre Hood for Weight Savings
The benefits of reducing weight apply to production cars too. Manufacturers, including Porsche, BMW and Chevrolet, are starting to use carbon fibre to manufacture the roofs, hoods and other components of their high-end performance cars.
Many performance car enthusiasts, especially those who like to build and modify their vehicles, are eager to reduce the weight of their vehicles in order to improve performance. As such, these enthusiasts will often replace their car’s heavy stock steel hood with a lightweight carbon fibre piece.
Carbon Fibre Hood for Looks
Carbon fibre has become a sort of visual shorthand for performance in the automotive world. Hoods are very large and easy to replace, so those looking to make a bigger visual impact can add a carbon fibre hood to their vehicle for a sporty look, even if performance is not a priority.
This easy to install product comes finished with a gloss clear coat for protection and shin, no paint or prep work is required, and comes out of the box with a stylish and high tech carbon look.
