Those Amazing Carbon Fiber Corvette Z06 Front Fenders

The Corvette Z06 continues to amaze!

High speed, of course, is the product of many factors, not least of which is reduced weight.  Of course, that weight reduction must not be at the cost of strength!  One of the many areas where weight is effectively reduced in the Z06 is in the front fenders.  In fact, the carbon fiber technology that is used is beyond remarkable!

Borrowing an excellent article from High-Performance Composites Magazine, our good friends at the Corvette Action Center include a marvelous illustrated summary on their website of this functionality.  It is worthy of the reader’s careful attention.
