Monterey Car Week through the eyes of MAcarbon

MAcarbon had an extremely busy, but good Monterey Car Week this year. We had booths at 5 events this year and attended a few others. We started the “week” off by attending the Pre-Reunion races at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. This is an awesome event and it’s very low key. There aren’t any crowds, the cars are amazing and it’s only $25. If you don’t want to pay you can watch the races from the “Cork Screw” for free.

The next event was ‘Concours on the Avenue’ in Carmel-by-the-Sea. This is a free concours event on the main drag of Carmel and most importantly…it’s free. There is always a very eclectic group of cars here and it is a must see.

Friday was the ‘Werks Reunion’ Porsche Club of America show and we had a tent displaying our carbon parts. This show is a must for all you Porschephiles, and the coral is probably more impressive than the show itself.

A couple of us left ‘Werks Reunion’ and headed over to Monterey for the inaugural ‘Exotics on Canary Row’. This was the first year for this show, but you would never know it by the amount of people and cars in attendance. We had our booth set up overlooking the picturesque Monterey Bay, and we brought along two of our customer’s cars (Ferrari 360 Spider and Audi R8 V10 Coupe). Next to us was one of 3 or 4 McLaren P1’s. Also in attendance were a few Porsche 918’s, a couple Ferrari F50’s, a Pagani Huayra, a few Ferrari La Ferrari’s and a Mercedes CLK GTR…just to name a few. This is sure to become one of the more popular events during ‘Monterey Car Week’ in the years to come.

On Saturday evening we had our parts on display at the ‘Serata Italiana’, held by our friends at the Lamborghini Club America. This was our 6th year sponsoring this event and it’s always a blast. Our table of parts was in set up in a beautiful court yard full of stunning Lamborghini’s including the prototype ‘Asterion’ hybrid and the new Aventador SV Roadster.

When most of the events in Monterey were winding down, the Ferrari Club of America national meet was just getting started. On Sunday evening we had a booth at the Hyatt in Carmel for the national meet and had a great time talking to our old and new customers.
Monday was the Ferrari Club Concours, where we had a tent displaying our products. This was a really nice event with a great mix of Ferraris new and old.

It was a tiring week, but it was a blast and we can’t wait for next year.  Click on the photos below to see the entire gallery!

 

The MAcarbon Quality

At MAcarbon, we make parts that we are proud of and pride making a quality product that looks as good or better than OEM.

That final 10%: The thing that makes us stand out from the rest, is our attention to detail…that final 10%. We use the best carbon fiber available at any price and lay it down with as little distortion as possible. We always match the OEM carbon patterns and we pay close attention to the direction of the carbon pattern, the finish and overall look of the part. After several layers of clear and sanding we always do a final ‘color sand’ making the parts smooth and free of any ‘orange peel’.

 

Lamborghini Gallardo Air Vents (Second set ever) and Map Light

 

 

We make parts that stand the test of time and never look aftermarket. In late 2005, We made this set of vents and map light. The vents are actually the second set we had ever made for a Gallardo (the weave is in the wrong direction, because we made these before Lamborghini offered carbon for the Gallardo). Even though these parts have been installed and used for some time, they are still in perfect condition.

Our products are made to last – with quality second to none, and nothing motivates us more than a happy customer.

Cars and Coffee at Canepa Design 5-10-2014

The 2nd Cars and Coffee of the year at Canepa Design was just as big as the first. This Cars and Coffee has really become a popular even compared to the previous couple years…as it should be. Beyond the normal people and there cars are the 100 or so cars housed by Canepa. Some of the cars are in the middle of restoration, for sale and there are about 25 that are housed in the motorsports museum upstairs. It is awesome to have the freedom to walk around the entire facility and look at everything. Not to be outdone by the Canepa cars, are the cars in the parking lot. People are really bringing some cool stuff out every month, and there is a little something for everyone. This month there were several American cars from 1920′s rat rods to tri-year Chevys and 1960′s muscle cars along with about 30 Porsches, a few Ferraris, a McLaren, tons of BMW’s and more.

Enjoy the pictures!

 McLaren San Francisco

John just delivered a wheel to our local McLaren dealer. What you see here is one of our custom steering wheels along with a pair of our ‘Nicoles’ …. the molded carbon fiber shift paddles.

Our additions compliment the factory carbon fiber wheel center, making it look OEM.

The customer is picking up the car today. I’m sure he’s going to love it!

We Love the SLR!

Below you see John enjoying his handiwork! …. Yes, the SLR is done and we love it …. John had other words in the midst of the project, but all is well …. the Mansory body glistens in the sun …. and now the interior shines as well!

Intensive Care! – The SLR comes apart

The McLaren Mercedes SLR is some car!

IMG_8938

It is some car to work on too …. Optimized for performance, you will find the battery below the trunk floor to lower the center of gravity.  Performance is the primary design element in this car. This optimization extends to a vast use of Carbon Fiber within the chassis structure. Working on this car is much like an ‘operation’ …. exposing the carbon structure takes the skill and patience of a surgeon!

You will soon see the SLR back in one piece …. and back on the road!

Can you have too much of a good thing?   Our friends at  Premier Exotics  think not!

Is it a Mercedes?      Is it a McLaren?

The answer is yes.

The collaboration has it’s roots firmly planted in Formula One. 

Sport Leicht Rennsport

 This over-the-top Roadster has a Mansory Carbon Fiber body that is sans paint showing it’s carbon beauty for all to see.

With bodywork in place, it’s now time for us to get to work on the interior!

The interior shot below can be considered the ‘before’ shot.

We will be posting updates as this project comes together.

The SEMA show

Ferrari 458 race car

The SEMA show this year was bigger than ever. An event that we always look forward to, this week long gear-heads dream was a real success. MAcarbon shared our booth this year with T&B Carbon Manufacturing, our European sister company. T&B came all the way from Belgium to debut a new product line, ‘Pearl White Carbon’. This product has a white carbon weave with a subtle pearlescent coating.

Ferrari 458 Italia

McLaren MP4-12C

Lamborghini Aventador

  

         

Whats your favorite? McLaren or Lamborghini?

We like ‘em both. Pick your favorite color.

Our friends from Wheel Boutique had the beautiful  white McLaren MP4-12C parked at the HRE booth. They have great taste as it sports a MAcarbon steering wheel.

While there are always Mustangs and Camaros at SEMA, this year the hot car was the Scion FRS. From mild to wild, this is the car to ‘tune’ this year! But…. don;t hold your breadth for the MAcarbon FRS product line. The cars are always great, but, we also welcome old friends and new ones alike. 

One of Lane’s favorites, the old-school Toyota Corrolla

Missing from the photo is Andre Pouliot and  Caroline Tonet. Andre is our Director of Molded Production and Caroline is the Director of our European Operations. Despite their ‘slogging’ it at the booth for many hours, we were so busy all week we only remebered to take a picture when they were both off duty.

We look forward working with the many new clients that we met at SEMA this coming year.
