WheelsAndMore has done it again. Aside from customizing multi-piece special lightweight wheels, WheelsAndMore could also make a car more dynamic in terms of road performance. This is shown on one of the company’s latest works, a performance-enhanced version of the already powerful Ferrari 488 Spider.
As it is typically, the Ferrari 488 Spider isn’t your ordinary roadster. Any car produced by Ferrari reigns supreme, especially in the area of performance. The Ferrari 488 Spider isn’t an exception.
Its beautifully and elegantly design exterior faithfully reveals how crazy is the Ferrari 488 Spider in terms of power. It is quite important to mention that the 488 Spider is powered by a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that could deliver 670 PS (661 hp) of max output at 8,000 rpm and 760 Nm (561 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available at 6,750 rpm. With this amount of power at its disposal, the Ferrari 488 Spider could accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds and to 200 km/h (0 to 124 mph) in around 8.7 seconds. As far as top speed is concerned, the Ferrari 488 Spider could go as fast 325 km/h (203 mph).Read the entire article WheelsAndMore comes up with tuned 777-PS Ferrari 488 Spider Triple Seven
Have you come across a Ferrari 488 Spider with ADV05 M.V2 Custom Spec wheels? Well, the most attractive Ferrari here on earth, or should we say in South Korea has just stepped in. Meet the Ferrari 488 Spider wearing the beautiful ADV.1 series.
A car owner from South Korea has customised a white Ferrari Spider and now it has the ADV.1 custom forged wheels. The client went for the stunning ADV05 M.V2 CS, which is an awesome choice for this type of road car. As shown in the picture, the wheels are painted in Manbronze and treated with clear coat finish. The very stylish and elegantly designed 50/50 exposed hardware also goes with the new ADV1 alloy set. Sizes for the wheels are at 20 x 9 (for the front) and 20 x 11 (for the rear).
The Ferrari 488 is actually the immediate successor of the 458 Italia. It was in 2015 when the supercar was first introduced. The Ferrari 488 GTB came with a 3.9L twin turbo V8 engine and promised to deliver a whopping 661hp at 8,000rpm. It also claims to produce 561lb-ft of torque at 3,000 revolutions per minute. It only shows that in spite of the Spider’s smaller displacement, it is also capable of delivering higher output as compared to the previous model’s naturally aspirated engine.Read the entire article Customized Ferrari 488 Spider gets the amazing ADV05 MV2 CS Series wheels
For those of you who follow news on Ferrari, we are pretty sure that you have seen the one of a kind SP38 nicknamed the “Deborah”, which simply is a 488 GTB that has gone through a number of cosmetic upgrades for it to look like a prettier coupe. But have you imagined a car like that, looking like a Spider? X-Tomi Design, and individual artist from Hungary decided to take out the car’s roof to imagine how the unique creation would look based on the 488 Spider.
The coupe’s lovely F40 inspired engine cover may be gone already, but the imaginary SP38 Spider still has everything they need to become a veritable showstopper, though there are zero chances of this to become a reality.
That’s because Ferrari has no plans of making an exact same model for another client, because the first client will probably not want a replica of his car. But instead, maybe the commissioned Deborah wants a matching Spider to go along with the Coupe. But don’t get us wrong because we are really just making up these scenarios in our minds.Read the entire article Ferrari SP38 gets rendered as a Spider
Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust
British automaker McLaren developed their MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division to make their already exclusive vehicles a little more bespoke. And today, we are going to discuss some of their newest and coolest products that indicate the company’s expertise in style and performance to the Sports Series range.
For instance, if you own a 570S Coupe, 570GT and 570S Spider, and you want to achieve a meaner sound, you can always order the new titanium exhaust. It is actually lighter than the stock unit by 11 pounds (5 kilograms). Best of all, it makes the sound it produces five decibels louder. MSO claims that the car’s new tone sounds cleaner and crisper, and that this comes from the rear end of the vehicle.
Today, the titanium exhaust runs 4,750 pounds ($6,570 at current exchange rates), and this part can be had in a Nano Black finish, instead of the standard Nano Clear colour. The good news here is that these add-ons will not only be available as an option for new cars, as later this year, MSO will be offering these as an upgrade to already existing Sports Series owners.Read the entire article Give your McLaren 570S Coupé, 570GT, or 570S Spider a meaner sound by installing MSO titanium exhaust
McLaren’s special department, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team, has created a unique colour that is a tribute to the home of the automaker’s founder, Bruce McLaren, in Surrey, England. This unique paint they call the Muriwai White has a white base with subtle hints of blue. We first saw it on the 570S Spider pictured here, but anyone can get their McLaren in this shade through MSO.
This white paint came to light with the help of Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only child and a brand ambassador for McLaren Automotive. She worked with MSO to develop the special colour. Their family home in England was painted in white, accented with blue doors. You might be wondering where the name Muriwai originated. Well, it is a town in New Zealand, located northwest of Auckland where Bruce grew up and where he won his first hill climb at the young age of 15.
But there’s more to this story. Amanda also said during the announcement of the new paint that her mom, Patty, was at a dinner party once, and a palm reader told her that she would live in a big white house with blue doors and shutters. Following that, she said that this unique shade of white is a symbol of her father’s pride and her mother’s comfort. Her father died prematurely in 1970 at the age of 32. Now we understand what makes this unique hue so special for the McLaren family.Read the entire article McLaren’s special paint Muriwai White pays homage to founder’s home
Yes, there is no more reason to stay at home when it’s freezing outside. Some folks sometimes feel the need to just stay snuggled up at the fireplace most especially if the dreaded wet and snowy roads start to threaten those hot summer wheels. But what if you have better things to do than sip coffee all day or hang out with your bae while staring gloomily at the frosted window? Boy we’ve got some good news for you.
British car maker McLaren and Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli have partnered in developing a winter wheel and tire bundle for McLaren’s Sports Series. What does that mean exactly?
Pirelli has optimized the tires to perform whether on rain, snow or dry conditions and these have been integrated with McLaren’s tire pressure monitoring equipment that works in conjunction with the vehicle’s onboard systems. Developed for its latest 570S Spider as well as for the 570GT, 570S and 540C, each package will include four 14–spoke forged alloy wheels in Dark Metal Grey finish plus a set of Pirelli’s MC Sottozero 3 winter tires.Read the entire article Assembled Pirelli winter tires for your McLaren Sports Series cars are now available
One of the nicest things about buying a brand new car is that it's already reasonably packed with all the great features--- oftentimes even with the latest styles and technologies available. So let’s just say your car is neither plain nor boring but you want it to appear a little different.
Something that adds more punch and that shouts out “hey look at me” to let it rise above the special bunch of supercars you see out on the street. If there’s a feature that has somehow caught your fancy then maybe it’s time to drive to your preferred aftermarket tuner and let them do what they do best.
The owner of this Porsche wanted to spice up the latest Panamera model by replacing the factory wheels with some new ones. Wheels Boutique, the largest HRE wheels and Vorsteiner Aeroparts dealer, has equipped this 2nd generation Porsche Panamera with the HRE Performance P200. The Panamera has been equipped with custom wheels that now flash rims at the front measuring 22 x 10 inches each and another set of rims measuring 22 x 12 inches at the rear.Read the entire article Aftermarket HRE Performance P200 wheels give aggressive vibe to Porsche Panamera
With so many rims available in the market today, it’s quite the challenge to tell which one would look best on your car. How much more if you plan to match them to a Bugatti Chiron? Many owners of these 1500 hp monsters would usually prefer the manufacturer-supplied wheels over those that come from the aftermarket specialists. To some, the many choices out there can make the task overwhelming.
It’s good to know there exists a handful of Bugatti Chiron owners who are brave enough to take the less traveled road. Take for example, the owner of this Bugatti who decided to find a new set of Forgiato Tecnica rims instead of settling for the Chiron’s stock alloy wheels.
We have no way of knowing what the size of these wheels really are, but let’s just say they fit those tires that already came with the Chiron from scratch. The stock Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are made especially for the Chiron’s powerful road potentials so keeping it stable under any road condition is imperative to its performance. In case the owner preferred another set of high performance tires, then we have to assume these must be the better ones. The stock comes in the sizes of 11x20 for the front and 14x21 for the rear.Read the entire article Bugatti Chiron with Forgiato Tecnica alloy wheels is hard to come by
McLaren Special Operations division (MSO) recently finished two new bespoke supercars: an MSO R Coupe, and an MSO R Spider. Both vehicles were based on the 650S and are fitted with a number of features. There’s another thing you should know: both vehicles were also made for one lucky and wealthy customer.
The coupe and the spider are among the latest projects of the MSO, and both are equipped with the same internal, external and mechanical specifications. For instance, both come with a 3.8 liter biturbo V8 that carries out 679 horsepower (506 kilowatts) and 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres) of torque. That is actually quite a big difference when you compare it to the standard 650S that produces only 641 horsepower (477 kilowatts). To give them both a unique roar, they were given a new titanium exhaust system with a crossover muffler.
To give them the overall package, both models will be given a dramatic-looking exterior, finished in a beautiful Liquid Silver paint, contrasted by a unique Delta Red pin stripe feature on both the front splitter and side blades. It has been given new elements like the MSO Visual Carbon Viber (VCF) front bumper, hood, louvered fenders, roof scoop, side mirror casing, and the rear decklid. The owner will be reminded of MSO when looking at the exterior, because of the splitter, side skirts, door sills, and rocker panels. Lastly, the coupe comes with a set of new satin black five-spoke wheels, while the spider has been fitted with five-spoke gloss black wheels.Read the entire article MSO R Coupe and Spider: two unique McLaren vehicles built for one customer
Porsche introduces the technologically advanced wheels with braided carbon fiber. These will be initially available on the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. Being the first car manufacturer to offer such innovation, the wheels will come with a massive sticker price of 15,232 Euros (or $17,970 after the current exchange rates).
Braided carbon wheels are made from CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) which is an extremely lightweight material that’s optimized absolutely for the absorption of longitudinal and lateral forces. It is also said to be 20% lighter and 20% stronger than regular alloy wheels. Besides trailing the road more efficiently due to lesser unsprung weight, the lower rotating masses would also mean spontaneous braking and acceleration. These would all result to more pleasurable driving plus better driving dynamics.
Porsche uses its massive carbon fiber braiding machine that has a measurement of 9 meters in diameter to cut and assemble more than 200 individual parts of the wheel. After the assembly, the wheel is pre-impregnated with a certain type of resin and baked using high levels of pressure and temperature. This is followed by an extensive cooling process before the finished wheel that will be inserted with a central lock and painted with lacquer as protective coating.Read the entire article Porsche to offer Braided Carbon Wheels for the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series
Automotive parts supplier Continental has redesigned its wheel and braking system to meet today’s demands in electro mobility. Unlike the traditional wheel and braking solutions, the New Wheel Concept specially made for medium and compact electric vehicles meet all the requirements electric driving puts on the brake.
Continental’s innovative concept is based primarily on two new sections between the wheel and the axle. The carrier, or the inner part of the aluminum brake disc, remains affixed to the wheel hub while the wheel brake is attached to the star carrier of the axle. The reduced weight also means changing brake pads and tires will come easier as these are the only parts requiring periodic replacements.
It is important for electric vehicles that the driver uses small amounts of energy on friction brake, according to Paul Linhoff, Continental’s chassis and safety business unit head. The vehicle’s momentum is converted into electricity during deceleration, thereby increasing the vehicle’s range. He added that while the driver uses the brake pedal, it doesn’t conclude that the wheel brakes are also in use.Read the entire article Continental to showcase New Wheel Concept for EVs at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
While combining retro with contemporary styling cues can sometimes not work out so well, this Lamborghini Huracan with Vossen forged wheels prove it all wrong. To start off, the iconic supercar has been fitted with Vossen’s LC-103, making it very much like a modern version of the Countach with a phone dial–inspired wheel design. The LC-103 has a starting price of $1,300 each and is offered in several different sizes.
In this particular Lambo, Vossen uses a single piece monoblock forged alloy wheels in rose gold finish with five rounded holes and polished details. These are nothing like we’ve seen before except those on the classic Lamborghini Countachs of the eighties.
According to the design details on their website, the Vossen Forged LC-103 wheel and Lip concept series aims to emulate the transition of multi-piece wheel while incorporating the forged aluminum’s single piece monoblock construction at the same time. The finishing options are done at Vossen’s very own, state of the art finishing facilities that produce only the best quality finishes.Read the entire article This Lamborghini Huracan steps out with Countach-inspired retro wheels by Vossen
Having a full list of MSO options is certainly one of the modern miracles in the world of after-market tuning. That said, there’s a McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO upgrades currently on sale at McLaren Scottsdale. For $487,572, the 675LT Spider features Mercedes Benz’s Flintgrau Metallic paint with MSO’s front splitter, rear diffuser, rear bumper, hood and side skirts all made with carbon fiber. In addition, the airbrakes, roof and hood have been painted off with a pair of racing stripes in Cerberus Pearl.
With this many MSO options, the one listed here may not even be the highest priced McLaren 675LT but it surely is one of a kind. We say this because a whole other range of MSO upgrades could be seen throughout the exterior. For example, there’s a new set of wheels in bronze with brake calipers in signature McLaren Orange. It also boasts a satin blue carbon fiber paddle shifts and a 24 carat gold heat shield throughout the exhausts.
Inside, the MSO specced 675LT Spider comes with a unique combination of carbon black leather and Alcantra fabric with a touch of Midnight Blue to highlight the accents. To create a connection with the exterior motif, the seat belts feature the same McLaren Orange just as the one painted on the brake calipers. All in, this entire set would typically cost you more than $90,000, which we think isn’t bad for a car bearing the Speedy Kiwi “swoosh” logo to start with.Read the entire article You can own this McLaren 675LT Spider with MSO specifications for less than $500,000
It’s finally here, the much-awaited open-air version of the McLaren 570S. Two years after McLaren launched the coupe form of the McLaren 570S, the British carmaker is now opening the order books for the new McLaren 570S Spider. As designed and engineered, the new McLaren 570S Spider is basically the same as the McLaren 570S Coupe, but without the fixed roof.
The new McLaren 570S Spider is essentially the third body style of the carmaker’s Sports Series product family (570 family), following the McLaren 570S Coupé and the McLaren 570GT. The main difference between the 570S Spider and the 570S Coupe is the fact that the open-top version comes with a retractable roof. Of course, the new 570S Spider still offers splendid levels of dynamism and refinement, coupled with supercar attributes and attitude.
As intended, the new two-seat, rear-wheel drive is provided with two-piece retractable hardtop made from lightweight composite panels. This sleek roof was engineered using the technology employed in the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spider models. Operated electrically with just a simple push of a button in the driver’s cockpit, the roof could be opened or closed in around 15 seconds, as long as the McLaren 570S Spider is travelling at speeds of up to 40 km/h (25 mph).Read the entire article McLaren 570S Spider makes its official debut
While most BMWs come with a long list of finishing touches for customers to choose from, this BMW M3 owner wants more than the standard and optional add-ons that are available. After all, an eye-popping BMW M3 in Satin Lime Green Chrome will grab more attention if it comes with a bronze colored wheel set. Sounds fair enough.
When customers take the road-less-travelled, it’s always the best time for after-market tuning specialists to take over. And so this is how it all started.
To put it more into details, this BMW M3’s very visible exterior which comes in Satin Lime Green Chrome paintwork was further enhanced with Velos Designwerks wheels. The secret is in the bronze beauty which is made of S15 monoblock forged concave measuring 20x10 (at the front) and 20x12 (at the rear).Read the entire article BMW M3 is simply stunning with Satin Lime Green Chrome finish and bronze Velos Designwerks wheels
For those of you who have been eyeing a set of carbon fiber wheels, but haven’t purchased one before because of its price, now might be your chance. That’s because carbon fiber wheels are now cheaper than they ever were. But it still cannot be said that everyone can afford a set.
Koenigsegg was the first company that introduced carbon fiber wheels in 2012. Koenigsegg marketed this product as the “world’s first hollow one piece, super light carbon fiber wheel”. However, this was especially made for the Agera R hypercar, and for you to get your hands on these wheels, you were required to get the car as well.
This all changed when Carbon Revolution came into the picture as it is the only firm that commercially produces one-piece carbon fiber rims. Customers can simply swing by their shop and pick up a set of carbon fiber wheels. While this means that you won’t have to part with the amount needed to acquire a hypercar, these carbon fiber wheel still weren’t cheap by any standards. Carbon Revolution has a network of 20 dealerships in the United States, wherein interested clients can easily buy a set of the ultra-light wheels.Read the entire article Carbon Revolution carbon fiber wheels are now 25% more affordable!
Following in the footsteps of the McLaren 570S, 540C and 570GT is the newest addition to the McLaren Sports Series -- the roofless 570S Spider. McLaren 570S was rolled out in coupe form 2 years ago, and we have been waiting for a convertible Spider version ever since. Now our fantasy can be a reality, as McLaren Automotive head honcho Mike Flewitt addressed the rumors and finally confirmed that the 570S Spider will be released possibly this year.
Flewitt is still silent about the further specs of the 570S Spider, however the up-and-coming sports car convertible will be built based on the Spider versions 650 and 675LT, which have been fitted with a folding hardtop.
The new 570S Spider will be equipped with a biturbo 3.8 L V8 engine, akin to its fixed-roof equivalent. When an auto manufacturer converts a coupe into a convertible, we can't help but think about the extra weight and lessened rigidity. However, the performance hasn't changed much, as the folding roof of the 570S Spider only puts on around 88 lbs (40 kg) and will not alter the 570S Spider's acceleration record from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 km per hour).Read the entire article McLaren 570S Spider will debut this year
To those who are planning to commit a crime Milan and are relying on a getaway car, better think twice. The Milan Police now have a Ferrari 458 Spider in their garage. With its estimated 320 kmh top speed, escape would be a remote possibility. That’s how we want it to go in our imaginations but actually, this car will be used for educating the public.
The police in Milan are happy folks now -- a confiscated Ferrari 458 Spider was seized from a mobster in an organized crime pursuit in September of 2016, and recently reassigned to Milan's ghisa (a local term for police) by a court responsible for allocating seized goods for public use. The local police force and national brigade can request to keep the seized goods taken from the mafia.
Lucky guys. According to the local agency, they have confiscated around 29 other cars and 3 motorcycles from mobsters located in the city. But local police force commander Antonio Barbato cleared the issues surrounding the acquisition of the supercar and remarked that the public won’t see the Ferrari shred the roads accelerating straight to 200 kmh in less than 10.8 seconds in Corso Buenos Aires.Read the entire article Confiscated Ferrari 458 Spider is transformed into police car in Milan
Doing more than just tuning shiny new cars, G-Power rolls out with a new line of Hurricane RR wheels for certain BMW M and Mercedes-AMG models. The new set of Hurricanes come in 23-inch, 22-inch and 21-inch wheel sizes. Unlike most conventional aluminum wheels, the Hurricane forged wheels are predominantly more lightweight because of the higher strength forged aluminum material.
According to the German-tuning specialist, the Hurricane’s lower mass, lightweight components will improve road traction to give the driver a better control of the vehicle. Since road traction performs an important role in driving, it also means there will be lesser weight transfer towards the outer wheel when taking corners.
Nevertheless, the G-Power Hurricane wheels are made with T6 6061 aluminum grade material. The T6 is a heat-treatment technology that spreads the “forces” within the aluminum to restore the characteristics of the alloy wheels. In fact, these strong yet lightweight alloys that come out of their CNC-Controlled milling machine are similar to those being used in aerospace industry.Read the entire article G-Power offers new Hurricane RR wheels for BMW M and Mercedes-AMG
The BMW M4 (F82) has been a favorite subject of modifications among many tuners as well as individual fans and enthusiasts. Wheels Boutique is joining this fray by implementing a couple of simple yet attention-grabbing tweaks on the BMW M4.
By itself, the BMW M4 is already good looking – solid yet dynamic. But Wheels Boutique customized the BMW M4 in a pretty straightforward manner. It wrapped the BMW M4 in a customized exterior paint finish called Silverstone Metallic II. This exterior paint finish may look like your typical shade of silver when viewed from afar or in pictures. However, when viewed closely on some particular angles, Silverstone Metallic II further accentuates not only the lines but also the curvy surfaces of the BMW M4 – thanks to its light blue hue. This is certainly true on the BMW M4’s character lines that flow down on both sides and its seemingly building front bonnet.
Of course – as its name indicates -- Wheels Boutique’s specialty is on vehicle rims. So, the main point of this customization is to show how grand Wheels Boutique’s wheel selection for the BMW M4 could be. For this particular BMW M4, Wheels Boutique decided to employ a set of HRE P101 wheels finished in matte black.Read the entire article BMW M4 gets stunning makeover from Wheels Boutique
