Scion FRS Carbon Fiber Hoods
The Scion FRS will have both OEM and vented styles of carbon fiber hoods available. The OEM style carbon hood will be designed using the stock hood but made of a lighter weight material that is less heat conductive than the metal hood. Carbon fiber hoods have become an industry trend because of the performance factors as well as the styling, giving the vehicle a sportier look that is found on track cars as well as high end vehicles such as the BMW M3. A carbon fiber hood is a great way to both reduce weight (thereby increasing power to weight ratio and gas mileage) but also lowering the center of gravity by reducing weight off the top of the vehicle.
