Talking Carbon FIbre Kit CAR!!

Hey everyone, I'm doing a project at the university regarding Lotus-7 style kit cars. I'm thinking of building a carbon fibre passenger tub, so essentially the front frame and the back frame will remain as they are (either steel or aluminum). From my initial calculations a carbon fibre tub would further reduce the weight (by at least 40kg), and additionally enhance stiffness by about 20% . What are your thoughts? is there a potential market for it? what are the important considerations to take into account? Here is a picture of a similar prototype!

Cheers guys!
