Carbon-fibre

What is carbon fibre?

Carbon fibre is a material that is used in racing cars and now, increasingly, in road cars. It is a light and extremely strong reinforced plastic that contains carbon fibres. It can be expensive to make, but it is ideal for making stiff, strong but lightweight cars, so it is largely used on sports cars. It’s also become popular as a finish in some car interiors as manufacturers try to make their cars look sportier.
