BMW Made Carbon Fiber Car

The famous German motor cars manufacturer BMW has made a new motor car model using carbon fiber.BMW had to work on many stages to create this car which is stronger than the steel. "Carbon fiber technology will fundamentally change the motor cars industry, becoming increasingly important in the quest for lighter-weight materials to reduce fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions," the company says in a statement.


BMW has made colorless fiber jointly with Mitsubishi rayon of Japan. In a 200 meter-long plant of Moses Lake, United States the fiber are pulled in reels and burnt at a temperature of 1,400 Celsius (2,550 Fahrenheit). Then carbon atoms were separated from it and the fiber got black color and unique strength. The remaining stuffs are all about filaments having width of one-tenth of a human hair. A bundle of 50,000 of them can lift almost a ton of weight. Then the threads were woven into mat in Wakersdorf in southern Germany.
To create three-dimensional body the mats are cut into layered, put under a vacuum in resin and cured at about 100 Celsius (212 Fahrenheit) which is harder than steel for 50% of the weight. Then the new model BMW is assembled in BMW's Leipzig plant.
But BMW authority didn’t clear when the most desired Carbon Fiber Car would be marketed.
