Uma was there? Wow. Now I think it's a great project. I wouldn't have been interested with some no-name model
Great to see stuff like this, a manufacturer with the balls to push in a new direction. In the old days you might have seen Honda leading this charge too, let's hope they can get into the act too.
The article mentions the good crash characteristics, but I thought this would be a flaw in a road car in one sense - if carbon fibre components suffer even the slightest bit of damage, their integrity can be sapped so they are normally discarded. Part of the high cost is the inspection process that is required to make sure there are absolutely no flaws in the pieces. If you crashed one of these and it gets a crack in the central frame, is it toast?
