Faurecia Automotive Does More Than Supply Seats and Interiors?
Its high tech exterior pieces are beginning to make their mark. The 2013 Audi RS3 Sportback carbon fiber fender is 60 percent lighter than steel.

While only a small portion of the company?s overall portfolio of business interests, the Exteriors division provides composite exterior panels and component pieces formed from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics (CFRP). How about a CFRP rear deck lid surround, fender, rocker covers and front splitters?
