Aluminum Drives Performance to New Heights
Tesla Model S. Audi R8. Jaguar F-Type. Porsche 911. Acura NSX. Ferrari 458 Italia. The winning secret for these and other performance-packed cars is not just under the hood… it’s under the paint.
When highly exacting engineers perfected these vehicles to be leaders in their respective segments, they didn’t start with carbon fiber and they certainly didn’t use steel. They selected advanced aluminum body designs to decrease weight and increase performance. Aluminum simply builds a better car.
All other factors equal, cars designed to be lighter with aluminum accelerate quicker, brake in shorter distances and handle corners better than their heavier, less-efficient counterparts. Decades of success in designing high performance luxury vehicles for the most discerning drivers is being applied to high-volume sedans, pickup trucks, SUVs and even minivans because every vehicle benefits from the optimized performance that aluminum delivers.
