Electric GT’s Tesla P100DL Features Bcomp Flax Fibre Technologies

Electric GT Holdings and SPV Racing recently unveiled the race-ready version of the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The car features lightweight body parts made using Bcomp's ampliTex and powerRibs natural fibre composite reinforcement products, contributing to a 500 kg weight reduction over the road edition.

The Electric Production Car Series (EPCS) edition Tesla also leverages the flax fibres unique translucency as the roof has a fully integrated LED screen that will display statistics and information during races.

The powerRibs flax fibre reinforcement technology forms a grid that supports thin-walled shell structures for applications such as motorsport body parts or automotive interiors. Combining high performance with low weight and safer crash behaviour, powerRibs can be employed with ampliTex flax fibre fabrics to create a high-performance, flax fibre panel.
