McLaren is widely known for producing some of the most menacing vehicles with performance to match the aesthetics. One of the features that make the 650S so sleek is the carbon fiber accents throughout the car. Sometimes these accents aren’t enough for many owners, which leads them to seek that extra flare to encompass McLaren’s beauty.
Vivid Racing set out to enhance these incredible features with the VR Aero carbon fiber rear engine cover. The gorgeous 2×2 (3K Twill Weave) not only captures the attention of on-lookers but adds to the performance aesthetic of the 650S. By matching the same manufacturing and weave methods as McLaren, each piece is pre-preg dry carbon fiber for ultimate durability and precision fitment. The dry carbon fiber also weighs next to nothing for those that are die-hard about weight savings.
Accentuating the factory body lines is a key factor to the VR Aero carbon fiber, which makes each piece so distinctive. The aggressive styling of the 650S is highlighted by installing the VR Aero rear engine cover and meshes well with its features. Precise fitment from the 3D scanning and detailed CAD engineering will make the installation of the rear engine cover a breeze without the need to modify the carbon fiber.
The pre-preg construction and UV-resistant epoxy eliminate the chances of the rear engine cover getting yellow and hazy over time. Commonly seen in cheaper carbon fiber, a yellow haze can form after being exposed to UV rays. Have no fear, as the VR Aero eliminates this possibility and will look stunning year after year.

What is Dry Carbon Fiber?
Dry carbon fiber is formed by using a pre-preg or impregnated piece of carbon materials. This piece of carbon is first placed into a mold, and then into a sealed vacuum to properly cure. This particular method creates the least amount of waste and forms a lighter version of carbon than the “wet” method. The vacuuming process of making dry carbon means that there are fewer pinholes and almost no air pockets that form in the carbon. Dry carbon is the highest quality version of carbon fiber products that are produced. However, it is 3 to 4 times more expensive to produce than its counterpart.
Advantages of Dry Carbon Fiber:
- 60% Lighter and Significantly stronger
- Superior manufacturing process
- Uses a dry finish for enhancing its cosmetic appearance
