That's just the monocoque though, I doubt all of the other parts will be 20% lighter as well.

I don't drive, I fly.
Still, that's impressive.

Probably Enzo-style; don't see any places for gullwing hinges. Personally I'm hoping for T-tops.

Gullwings would be sacrilege. Enzo himself would rise from the dead and slap the designer in the face.

On a related note, I completely forgot I started this thread 3 years ago. :lol:

No, I believe the F50 was the first:

Well as no one has posted this yet, I figured I'd post, F70 engine bay photo released.

Wasn't the McLaren F1 the first to adopt that? I can recall Hammond saying the F1 was "the first carbon fiber-bodied car" (or does that mean something else?).

We're talking about chassis here, carbon fiber-bodied car reffers to other carbon parts such as doors, hood, panels, etc.

From Wiki:
The McLaren F1 was the first production road car to use a complete carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque chassis structure.

Meanwhile, the rear looks Fallopian.

Judging from the teasers I think it will look nicer than the Mclaren P1, but I very much doubt that it will be quicker.

It wouldn't surprise me if they stacked up against each other kind of like how the Ferrari 458 and Mclaren MP12-4 does now.
