To make things lighter and better, Ford has equipped this one with carbon fibre components for the front splitter, rear spoiler and also the side skirts. The Roush 729 runs on custom Vossen RVS forged alloy wheels on Continental ExtremeContact Sport tyres. Doing braking duties on this are Brembo units on all wheels.
