The bonnet of the A class lacks a lot of aggression and style even compared to the CLA in standard form. After striking up a deal with Revozport we are now able to change this with the A class full carbon fibre bonnet with integrated vents.
This part is a full carbon fibre piece which is double skinned for strength. The vents have a water catching section which is made out of red kevlar and carbon, these hold a small amount of water that help take heat away from the engine bay during normal use. Not only do the vents help with improved airflow through the engine bay, they look fantastic too!
There are a couple main benefits to the carbon fibre bonnet:
- Weight saving – carbon is considerably lighter than aluminium and yet still very strong.
- 4 Vents to help with cooling and reducing engine bay temps, this in itself will yield added performance from cooler intake temps and helping with cooler operating temperatures.
- And of course, it looks incredible from every angle! The closest thing to full Motorsport cosmetics.
Currently this is not a stocked part and is produced to order. Revozport produce this bonnet and we will have it sent directly from Revozport in Hong Kong. If ordered from the UK, we will take delivery of the bonnet first and then send it out. Orders from outside of the UK will have this sent directly and may have to cover a small import charge. Lead time is around the 4 week mark before shipping.
Fitting we suggest using a bodyshop that has knowledge of installing bonnets. The fitment is extremely good but there may be some small adjustments that are required such as alignment of hinges, brackets etc. The bonnet catch will also need a small amount of adjustment (enlarging) to fit to the inbuilt threads on the bonnet. The whole installation is achievable in under an hour.
The bonnet is an extremely well developed and tested part, don’t be fooled into thinking all carbon bonnets are the same. There is a real art to making a light and strong carbon bonnet, if not made correctly they can disintegrate at speed which has been seen with cheaply made parts. Here at Carbonwurks we only produce and sell quality parts, don’t except cheap imitations.
