Carbon City

Money no object? Head over to Streamline Carbon where you buy almost any Carbon fibre part to fit the 106.

Having seen their work on the GTi-6 and their willingness to create custom carbon fibre parts at prices reasonably accessible to the general public, I thought I’d check out their range for the 106.

As well as its inherent beauty, Carbon Fibre offers a very lightweight and very strong option, particularly good for track cars where weight is the enemy. From coilpack covers to tailgates the range is impressive, if expensive. However when you bear in mind, this sort of technology was previously reserved for Formula One cars, it is impressive to see it filtering down to the cheap hot hatch market.
