Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
Our friend Damon surely identifies with this famous quote. When your trusty steed is a Ten-cylinder Gallardo and your ’rounds’ are a snowy mountain pass, what could go wrong?
Who needs a Quattro when your Lambo is All Wheel Drive!!
We have yet to figure out where Damon packs his pair of skis though!
Damon’s Facebook Page is full of people who use their exotics.

To keep a grip on his Bull in the sleet and snow, Damon came to us. Normally we recommend using the later Gallardo wheel, but Damon has a soft spot for the original equipment early wheel. He requested a thicker rim wrapped in suede, along with a suede hub. He chose our custom yellow stitching to match his interior.
A nice touch is the Texilium Twill Carbon Twelve O’clock ring, again in yellow. So, Damon …. Have fun playing in the snow!!
ACG’s C63: Carbon Overload!
Sometimes you need a bigger hammer! AMG put together a great car with their first generation C63, but, when you are a tuner firm in San Diego that just doesn’t nail it. So, when Automotive Connoisseur Group (ACG) decided to build up a C63 AMG they went all-in.
The crew at ACG added a Weistec Stage2+ supercharger/intercooler package along with the same firms billet rods and forged pistons. Nearly every single component in the fuel system was upgraded along with the exhaust. That combination develops over 700 horsepower rendering the rear tires useless! After quite a bit of metal-shaping, foot wide 20’s were installed on the rear allowing all those ponies to finally hook up.
This car oozes carbon fiber, from its front air dam lip to the tip of its rear spoiler. One nice touch is the exposed carbon stripe on the sides of the hood! The carbon treatment extends into the cockpit too. ACG called us up and literally ordered one of everything. Our steering wheel and shifter paddles were added to our dash package and then a full complement of door trim to finishes this one off.

Last week MAcarbon made a trip to Miami to install a Ferrari 458 dashboard installation. This wicked black Italia is owned by former Indycar and current sports car driver, Jamie Camara.
Jaime had been waiting for a 2013 but this late model 2012 popped up with delivery miles at Formula 1 Sports Cars. It was perfect: black exterior, black interior with red deviated stitching, OEM carbon fiber steering wheel and center console.
The only problem, as nice as that is, was the lack of a carbon fiber dash. The contrast of the CF and the silver dash was jarring. Formula One Pilot (and long time MAcarbon customer) Tony Kannan referred Jaime to us.
We would like to give a special thanks to TK for letting us use his shop for the install. Jaime liked the results so much he ordered a set of door handles to remove the final bit of silver from the interior!
One of our favorite customers asked us to make a carbon interior for her Q7. She wanted to replace all of the silver trim in her car with carbon in order to match the way she said her Q7 “hauled ass”. We put together a seven piece kit for her and we think the results speak for themselves. She was certainly happy. And we were so hapy with it that, we will soon have the Q7 as a normal product offering. There are a few different versions of the Q7 interior so pricing will vary depending on what the customer has. Contact MAcarbon if you are interested in pre-ordering.

MAcarbon Mercedes G55 Steering Wheel
The G55 is Mercedes’ serious off-road vehicle. It is also one of their most luxurious. As such, they did not offer a carbon interior for the car. MAcarbon was asked by Progressive Autosports of Houston Texas (www.progressiveautosports.com
) to help one of their customers who wanted a carbon interior in their new 2010 G55. Due to the high cost of parts from Mercedes, the customer’s parts were sent to us. Within the quick 3 week turnaround time, all wood pieces were changed over to carbon. This includes the steering wheel, center console, upper console and radio surround, shift knob, passenger grab handle and seat switch surrounds. If you have a Mercedes G55 and would like a quote on your interior, please contact MAcarbon for a quote.

The famous (on the internet) photographer ItzKirb (www.itzkirbphotography.com) brought his new Cayenne Turbo over to MAcarbon to get the boring wood interior replaced with carbon. (Unfortunatly, he didn’t bring any of his ItzGirls!) We did the doors, dash strip and center console. Kirby decided to do the grab handles as well. The overall feel of the interior changed dramatically to the aggresive style more apporpriate to a Turbo. More photos to follow.
For any Cayenne owners think of moving to carbon, the car is real easy to work on. MAcarbon’s John Borchelt was able to do the complete install in about an hour and a half. We will have more install guides covering the parts we installed available soon.
MAcarbon recently did a custom carbon fiber steering wheel for a Lamborghini Gallardo with a twin turbo kit from Heffner Performance. The car features a unique Lamborghini color called Blu Cepheus, so we customized this wheel with Blu Cepheus stitching and a painted 12 o’clock ring. The top and bottom sections were done in carbon fiber, as well as the wheel center. Check this sweet wheel out!
