    D3 Motorsport Vented Hood w/IMAGES

    D3 | Ventilated Motorsport Hood

    Elegance & the Motorsport Spirit are the key factors in the design philosophy of D3.

    The D3 Ventilated Motorsport Hood replaces the OEM CTS-V hood with a lighter (nearly 8 lbs) carbon fiber hood. The Ventilated Hood is designed to extract heat allowing for cooler underhood temperatures. Additionally the hood is also designed to clear the largest blowers available including the 4.2L ULTRACHARGER kit. We have tested this hood extensively on the racetrack in the most adverse conditions to ensure adequate cooling efficiency.

    $3295 MSRP | USD












    For information regarding this product or other D3 products, please visit www.d3cadillac.com or contact one of our sales representatives at 562-595-8518.

    Thank you,

    Do you have any more pics of the thunder gray car (second from the bottom)? That car is more like what most of us drive, so would give a better idea of how the hood looks without all the other stuff like custom paint and race options. Thanks in advance.

    Nice, thanks! Ya that gives a better idea of how it can look on a normal sedan. It looks like either primered or flat black on purpose.. The reason I say that, not just to be captain obvious,, is because I asked them when I saw them at MFest if they would make a fiberglass version for cheaper and he told me that they will only make it in CF for weight reasons mostly (hence they either primered or painted a CF hood flat black).. I think it was the owner/co-owner I was talking to,, Tim I think was his name? Anyway, I really want this hood, but it is extremely hard for me to justify 3300!!

    Re: D3 Motorsport Vented Hood w/IMAGES

    Does D3 offer group buys. It sounds like there is some interest in this hood but the price that is scaring everyone off. if $3K is too much, what would people be comfortable spending for carbon fiber hood? I know I would be much more inclined at $2K

    Anybody got a good guess what are the rear tire dimensions on that car?

    .



    $3300? It's a complex shape and all that but... not for me D=*

    Does anyone make an OE CF hood?

    P.S. : shouldn't you be running some hood pins?

    I can't believe it's still 2K, I suppose it looks like you're getting a 3d mapped OE duplicate hood with CF frame, but $2k for the appearance and 9lb savings? >_>
