WHAT – A carbon fibre gear in a helicopter

Could a carbon fibre gear be the future of aerospace and cycling?
On the left, a bog standard metal gear but on the right is the newest and lightest composite carbon fibre gear from a helicopters main rotor gear box. Designed to reduce weight and increase strength this carbon fibre gear is the first of its kind in a bid to take modern aviation to new heights. (pardon the pun)

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.
