Carbon-fiber monocoque design is commonly used in racing cars since 1980's, like Formula racing and Le Mans series prototypes. The first production car with carbon-fiber monocoque design was Bugatti EB110.[1] Now most modern sports cars and supercars have carbon-fiber monocoque cells, and some big car manufacturers have also started applying the same in passenger cars like BMW i3.[2]
