    Pity it isn't 100% carbon fibre, that would be a significant weight saving and would really add something to the 124's handling characteristics.
    Maybe no so good in an accident though.

    Oh, 1000 apologies!

    You've just got to spill the beans on this rawc43...

    How much weight does it save.

    Yes fibreglass with a fake carbon fibre wrap will be lighter, it will also flap around like Trump's hair in a light breeze.

    :D

    Doubt it'll make much difference but it would look nice on the right car

    Guess it depends on how hard you are pushing, loosing a bit of weight right where the bonnet is is ideal for the 124.
