The headlights, as well as the backlights, were also redesigned and more modern, with a totally new, angular and way more aggressive look. In addition, the new fog lights will help during bad weather conditions. The rest of the changes included a redesigned hood, addition of new exterior colors, new alloy wheel design and sizes plus some nice and remarkable chrome details. In order to reduce the weight of the car, and improve the overall performances, the engineers have used some lightweight materials, including aluminum and carbon fiber that improve the strength but lowers the overall weight.
