When McLaren unveiled the 600LT in 2018, the car community went wild. The lightweight chassis contrived of carbon fiber was truly an engineering marvel. Although carbon chassis is nothing new in the automotive industry, McLaren did it in such an elegant way that is not only lightweight but safe! One thing owners seek is more carbon fiber accents on the exterior of the 600LT to top off the performance aesthetics.
Vivid Racing set out to enhance the front end of the 600LT with the VR Aero carbon fiber front bumper. The gorgeous 2×2 (3K Twill Weave) not only captures the attention of on-lookers but adds to the performance aesthetic of the 600LT. 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 component to the VR Aero carbon fiber which is what makes each piece so distinctive. The aggressive styling of the 600LT is highlighted by installing the VR Aero front bumper and meshes well with the rest of its features. Precise fitment from the 3D scanning and detailed CAD engineering will make the installation of the front bumper a breeze without the need to modify the carbon fiber.
The pre-preg construction and UV-resistant epoxy eliminate the chances of the front bumper 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 front bumper 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
