The masterpiece of automotive engineering and fashion was made by German twins Daniela and Annette Felder, of the London based design duo Felder Felder.

The metallic grey skater dress took well over 100 hours to make and is 97% carbon fibre.

The fully sustainable material, not yet available to the fashion industry in large quantities, was created at the same place that produces the carbon fibre for BMW’s ground-breaking electric Hybrid BMW i cars.

The Journey Of Carbon Fibre Within Lamborghini

From day one Lamborghini knew that if they were going to make some of the finest cars the world had ever see they would require the best materials the planet has to offer, and it didn’t take them long to know that CARBON FIBRE was undoubtedly the super material for the job.

From watching this video its evident to see that the unique properties and processing requirements of the carbon fibres have played a big part in the design process of all composite Lamborghinis resulting the automotive art we always see rolling out of the doors of the Lamborghini factory.

Pagani just can’t let it die when it comes to their famed Zonda. Their Huayra has been around for a while now however some extremely rich customers remain besotted with the Zonda, and are prepared to spend extortionate sums of money for one-off variants of its signature supercar.

The latest creation is dubbed the 750 LM, bought by a diehard fan of the marque who already boasts a Zonda R and Cinque Roadster in his collection. We have a video of the latest limited-edition Zonda’s unveiling courtesy of davide458italia.

 Powered by a 7.3-liter AMG-built V12 rated at 750 hp (760 PS) the Zonda LM sports an exposed carbon-fibre body work, a roof-mounted air scoop, massive rear wing and beefy diffuser.

The New McLaren P1 GTR = The P1 and some

Hot off the drawing board, the first revealed image of the brand new McLaren P1 GTR for when your P1 just isn’t EXtreme enough for you.

 McLaren have now confirmed it will be building a track specific addition to the insane P1 called, wait for it ……………….. the P1 GTR.

The GTR will strap on an  additional 83 BHP for the P1 and at a whopping cost of £1.98 Million. But if you want to get you’re hands on one of these highly tuned carbon fibre pocket rockets you will have to of owned a P1 prior to even being invited to be considered for a GTR.

0-60 and 0-100 times are as of yet a dream in the minds of the tuning team at McLaren, but you can be certain they will be as mind blowing as the idea of this car its self.

Full bore Pagani Zonda Revolucion on track

The heavy metal soundtrack that’s been plucked from the Kerrang music channel is courtesy of a Mercedes AMG’s 6.0-litre V12 – naturally aspirated engine that’s been poked with hot irons to produce a whopping 789bhp and 538lb ft of torque. To put this into perspective that’s 50bhp and 14lb ft more than the Pagani Zonda R. Now that’s keen.

The entire car is proud to weigh less than a Mini Cooper, all down to its weight loss diet of #carbonfibre and a carbotanium tub at its core.

Just some of the copious amounts of carbon fibre Things found on board are, a huge rear diffuser and DRS (drag reduction system),  the same as the ones on a blooming Formula One car. And of course the carbon brakes that are 15 % lighter than the R, too, and claim less break fade.
