If they want to have a contest for naming the 3 wheel options my vote is 1.) Ugly as hell 2.) Plain terrible 3.) God awful

I hope they at least make it "Optional"...

But nobody wants to hear this next part..
To put into perspective, the LFA hood costs approx. $20K.. Ok that's crazy expensive..

Lets jump down to IS F CCS-P hood.. That one costs approx. $10k..

Soo that would put the RC F right in between in my opinion..

It's a HIGH dollar option for an expensive part to make.. (LFA Technology)

It does look awesome on the darker colored RC F's..

It's hit or miss, the Seibon in my old car didn't fit too well.

Obsidian exterior with the CF hood and roof would be bliss

That cobalt blue contrast orange quite nicely!

Regarding CF hood do we know if it only comes in nude or there is painted option as well?

I feel bad for US customers who want the hood but we are getting RC-F at least $20K cheaper than EU when the bottom line is drawn. So you get some, you loose some.

In the countries where it will be offered, the Carbon Fiber will be exposed..
