Competition from other materials The principal competitors to plastics and
composite in car applications are steels (particularly light weight grades),
aluminium and magnesium. Competition between materials is strongest in the
exterior body panels sector. The development of lighter weight high-strength
steels has resulted partly from the ULSAB programme. High-strength steels have
application in the bodywork, chassis and suspension areas of the car. Metal-
plastic-metal (MPM) ...

One example is the McLaren Fl , although carbon reinforcement has been used
widely in other concept vehicles, e.g., (182). Alternative fuel sources also provide
opportunities, due to the need to minimise body mass (370, 378) or use in
containment systems for, e.g., gaseous fuels (101, 296) or in flywheels (193).
Carbon reinforcements are in widespread use within the motor racing and
competition car sectors (42, 44, 80, 81, 95, 112, 166, 351, 358). Here the
applications include ...
