2021 V2 Version now will be manufactured in the UK from April 2021. Pre-Orders have a lead time of approximately 4 weeks.
Just like our extremely popular grilles, this lightweight bonnet is made from high quality Twill-weave wet lay Carbon Fibre and are guaranteed to impress. The glossy shine of the carbon is a perfect complement to one of the world's most unique looking cars.
1. Process: Vacuum infusion technology which makes the part stronger, more lightweight and better looking.
2. Material: High Quality 3K Twill Carbon Fiber Fabric, 200G/M² With UV coating protection.
3. Finish: Clear coated & UV protected for that non-fading hi-gloss look.
Vented design includes air vents for extra engine cooling.
This carbon bonnet weighs ~6.5Kg which is around 25% lighter than the OEM bonnet (~9Kg). Reducing weight in the front end will help balance out the weight distribution and reduce understeer.
UK Customers are welcome to collect from us to avoid the shipping crate surcharge. We can deliver these for fuel cost as well.
We recommend professional fitment.
The bonnet latch, hinges and windscreen spray nozzles must be removed from your old bonnet and fitted to the new one. We also recommend adding an insulation blanket or heat reflective tape to the underside of the bonnet for protection.
The resin can be damaged by heat & UV rays from the sun. We recommend adding extra UV protective clear coat if you live in a hot & sunny climate.
Please note that stone chips can easily chip the resin. We recommends adding a clear protective wrap over the top of the product.
2021 V2 Version includes:
- Now manufactured locally in the UK from new molds
- Sealed backing to inhibit water ingress
- Rubber edging fitted around carbon panels
- Machine polishing
- Enlarged Vents
Our customers have fed back to us that the fitment of the bonnets is very good, however, there has been one instance where a slight warp of 6mm / 1/4" across the width is present. Whilst we do all we can to check bonnets before shipping, a 6mm warp is impossible to see without test fitting to the vehicle beforehand. Each vehicle is slightly different in terms of panel gaps, and the products are 100% hand made - there can be a lot of variation. Misalignment of your wings/bumper will be noticeable. There may be an element of "making it fit" involved. This can include bending fender tabs on the car, adjusting the factory rubber bonnet stops, bending the bonnet hinges etc. If you have bought a carbon fibre bonnet before, you will know that some require a LOT of work to fit properly - these are very good quality, however, some work may still be required.
Shipping Crate Option:
Due to the nature of the product, we now order in heavy duty timber crates to ship the bonnets in. These crates are made from ISPM stamped heat treated wood which is suitable for international export. All overseas orders will require this.
If you are a UK customer, we will arrange free delivery with you (we will drop it off to you within 80mi), but if this is not possible i.e. you live more than 80mi away, there will be an additional cost to you for fuel. If you prefer, you can order a crate and have it shipped via TNT.
