I guess it's for the balance so it can maximize the speed of the car

There are a lot of areas that you can utilize carbon fiber pieces to be effective and still structurally rigid. Majority of it would be in the mid section area but they can definitely do it in the front end as well to, again, aid in the weight distribution.

Well, I see your point there. It's for the proper weight distribution over the car

Oh, just to give you guys a good look at what something running full carbon fiber can cost, the Aston Martin Lagonda is the first million dollar super sedan with an all carbon fiber body.
