Lambo Wins Interior AwardâFor Composite Deployment
March 30, 2016
Nowadays, there is something of a mania in interior design when it comes to putting in trim thatâs based on carbon fiber.
Generally, it is along the lines of carbon fauxber, however, as letâs face it, real carbon fibers are still a bit on the expensive side, particularly when the material is being used for non-structural application, simply as a decorative bit.
However, sometimes you just have to have the real thingâespecially if the car in question is a Lamborghini HuracÃ¡n.
A few years ago the people at Sant’Agata Bolognese developed a new process for producing parts, which is called âforged composites.â Essentially, it is a patented process that uses carbon fiber-based sheet molding compound. It is used in a variety of components for Lamborghinis.
Earlier this month the company was presented an award at the JEC Composites Exhibition for its deployment of carbon fiber components in the HuracÃ¡n.
Offered as an option to buyers of the car, there are Class A composite surfaces for the door handles, sills, air intakes, central tunnelÂ and other components.
The car is certainly the real deal. The materials certainly ought to be, too.
