Besides being a modern day automotive marvel, carbon fiber is also considered as a luxury of sorts. This Audi R8 LMS GT3 R16 by GMG Racing is a one-of-a-kind super car weighing in at 2,800 pounds and sporting a lightweight aluminum frame and a carbon fiber body. The car will show up in the North American World Challenge GT and was successfully tested at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. Also, plans to use more carbon fiber and fit a new exhaust system for which the engine will need retuning are being drawn up.
