Packing Heat? Time for some Kevlar (Vorsteiner Eye Candy)

Thought you guys would enjoy this.







This vented hood helps dissipate the heat from under the engine bay. It just seemed apropos to make a pun about "Heat" and Kevlar.

Enjoy!

Thanks Jimmy.

Mr. JLevi can you post pics of the top side of this beast please? Also what weight savings does this part provide if any?

Sean, you can always paint the outside of the hood to match and leave the underside of the hood with the exposed carbon.

The top of this hood is normal carbon fiber. Vorsteiner offers the carbon kevlar at no extra charge for the bottom of the hood but not the top. For the top I think they'd probably just do the vents.

I was actually hoping for a cheaper version... but yes your option is the best option...

Zero. The OEM aluminum hood is already very light.
