    This car is old.

    It's been "coming to a theater near you" for over 8 years. It never does, because VW won't break new grounds like Honda will. They take part in the fuel glut just like everyone else did.

    The process of turning the mat into a finished product is what makes it so high priced.

    Carbon Kevlar is still costly, and most of what we see on the markets is still a 1001 "decorative" material. Aircraft and real CF apps are using a FAR superior material.

    I also understand that the Israeli artifical spider web should be getting unveiled. Invented it about 14 years ago. Carbon Nanotube will hit the market at about the same time.
