Live from SEMA 2008: Toyota Yaris with Carbon Fiber Hood

They made a carbon fiber hood for a Toyota Yaris. No, seriously:

Toyota Yaris Carbon Fiber Hood

This was in the DUB section of SEMA outside along with Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, etc. Right.

Hi! I founded in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way

    Yeah, seriously … funny thing is, a friend of mine just bought a Yaris (her first car since she emigrated from Ireland), and I couldn't stop thinking, "You know, if this thing had more power and a strong enough suspension, it wold make a heck of a rally car."

    But that's just me …
