Its design comprises a tubular steel and carbon-fibre section with a removable roof. Donkervoort builds its via its production process — Ex-Core — which uses foam to apply pressure to carbon-fibre layers in a self-heating mould. From there, software and removable heat cartridges with built-in sensors ensure that heat is evenly distributed during moulding. The process costs 30 to 50 per cent less than traditional carbon-fibre processes, ostensibly.
“We made use of Ex-Core and added strength and created an integrated design that links to our heritage while advancing the F22’s design,” Jordi Wiersma, a Donkervoort design team lead, said in a statement. “We tried to…
