“We save 25 percent in weight compared to a forged alloy wheel with the hybrid wheel and another 10 percent if it’s completely carbon,” Mr Storkenmaier said.
“It’s the most important kind of weight because it’s unsprung mass and there are also rotating mass advantages.”
Given carbon fibre has a reputation for being light, incredibly strong but not good at bending, we asked if there concerns about wheels shattering or becoming damaged to the point where the cars were dangerous to drive.
“The carbon fibre wheels are very damage resistant. They’re actually more damage resistant to kerb hits than standard alloy wheels because the damage polishes out really easily.
