C3 Carbon Ferrari 458 Carbon Fiber Bonnet Latch Cover
The factory trim piece that covers the Ferrari 458's bonnet latch (in the engine bay) is made of unattractive black plastic. This oversight detracts from the appearance of the engine bay (more so when it is surrounded by C3 Carbon Fiber Engine Covers). That's easily rectified with C3 Carbon Fiber Latch Cover.
Made from aerospace-grade autoclaved dry carbon fiber, matched to Ferrari's traditional 1x1 3K plain weave pattern, it's a perfect match to Ferrari factory carbon or the C3 Carbon Fiber Engine Cover pieces. And it installs easily in minutes.
- Autoclaved pre-preg dry carbon fiber construction with 1x1 3k plain weave matching OEM Ferrari carbon fiber
- Clear-coated with automotive urethane, hand polished to a mirror finish
- OEM-perfect fit
- Digitally 3D laser scanned for guaranteed fitment
- Autoclave formed in billet aluminum molds at more than 100 psi and 200 degrees Fahrenheit
Experience the Difference of C3 Carbon Products
Competition Carbon Components (C3 Carbon) has been steadily gaining in popularity amongst today high-performance driving enthusiasts due to several key factors that help C3 Carbon stand out in a market full of sub-par aftermarket offerings. Each C3 Carbon product is manufactured to provide perfect fit and extreme strength while reducing weight, maximizing quality and ensuring years of exceptional finish. We provide all of this for significantly less money than OEM parts.
Every product we make uses pre-impregnated dry carbon formed in a CNC-machined billet aluminum mold which is manufactured by laser-scanning the OEM component(s) so you know you ll have a perfect fit, every time. Dry carbon is stronger and lighter than wet carbon, often weighing 1/3 of our competitors products. Our manufacturing methods also produce a smoother surface on each part for more dimensional accuracy; shaving edges, widening mounting holes and flexing pieces to make them fit are a thing of the past.
C3 Carbon also applies an automotive urethane clear-coat which is U/V cured for durability and guarantees C3 Carbon parts won't yellow over time.
Many of our competitors use wet carbon (which is heavier), and some use fiberglass with a carbon overlay (much heavier, as the carbon fiber has epoxy literally painted onto it). These materials and manufacturing methods produce a poor finish due to air contamination, and because the epoxy isn t applied uniformly throughout the weave. These products are also much weaker than C3 Carbon products. Finally, most competitors use a fiberglass mold, which is far less expensive but cannot maintain the strict tolerances we demand of our own products. In the end, the fit and finish simply cannot stand up to C3 Carbon products.
