TOP > PRODUCTS INDEX > CARBON BONNET

The Mine's Carbon Bonnet is fabricated from extremely high quality dry carbon whilst the factory bonnet is made of aluminium. 
It will shave off approx. 6.9 kg compared to the factory one (12.1 kg), and consequently the overall frontal area will be greatly reduced. 
Although this bonnet combines with carbon air intake duct, which is totally an original shape, it is based on the factory shape and striker, thereby installation is simple and direct bolt-on replacement for the factory item. The existing inner rib is utilized to secure the strength as well.

 The bonnet lock pin is recommended to use in order to prevent accidental loosening at the track or high speed range.

There are two types of surface process, one is what we coat on the surface with our ultimate clear paint finish, and another is what we do not for those who paint on their own after purchase. Please specify upon ordering

To make the GT-R run faster... When striving for more power and greater response, lightening of the vehicle is absolutely essential. Besides lightening the vehicle, anti-heating measures are key to running the vehicle at its maximum potential on the circuit. The design of the Carbon Bonnet Type II is based on maintaining the design as well as the GT-R's functionality. The biggest change to the characteristics of the bonnet would be the ventilation ducts added to the engine room. To take advantage of the limited air space available, air is allowed to flow through the inner ribs of the bonnet to counter the heating of the engine. Also, to prevent rain water from directly entering the engine room, drains have been added to the front of the bonnet to counter water based problems.
Mine's strives to maintain the GT-R's original design and will almost fool you in thinking that it's a factory part.
Without drastically changing the design Mine's provides an original sporty design, that is obviously different from others.
Dry carbon material is used and the bonnet weighs just 5.2 kg. This brings a huge 6.9 kg weight difference. As we did with the Type I, honeycomb construction is used as to maintain durability and keep it lightweight. The Carbon Bonnet Type II is compatible with the factory striker and just needs to be bolted on.
It is available with a Super Clear Coat Finish as well as without for those who intend to paint the bumper to their own liking.

To prevent problems while driving at high speeds on the circuit we advise taping over the bumper and bonnets openings, or the use of bonnet pins.
