Porsche unveils new 19-inch RS Spyder Design wheels with Innovative Central Locking

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Porsche AG now gives new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels solely for the 911 Turbo series as the ultimate feature in the range of superbly specialized, customized features available solely on fresh models (ex works).

The most remarkable feature of these forged aluminum lightweight wheels with their seven U-shaped double spokes is the special, currently developed central locking system.

In lieu of the wheel nuts typically used in motorsport, these very unique wheels come with wheel bolts locking the new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels steadfastly and safely on the bearing of the wheel.

The ground-breaking security device on the wheel bearing is composed of a magazine fitted in the wheel hub with spring-mounted security bolts. Standing out plainly and strikingly, the bolts on the new central locking are eloxy-plated in titanium color in clear and distinct contrast from the silver-colored paint finish on the 19-inch RS Spyder wheels.

The innovative design of the latest wheels is originated from the wheels on Porsche's RS Spyder racing car, the sports archetype from Weissach which only of late won all titles in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS ) for three consecutive times.

Another exceptional accomplishment of the Porsche RS Spyder is that it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its class right from the beginning in its very first try and also garnered the winner's title in the European Le Mans Series.

The latest wheel will be obtainable optionally on the 911 Turbo starting January 2009, selling at a bottom price of €2,950 or $3,820. The retail price of the 19-inch RS Spyder wheel in Germany inclusive of 19% VAT is €3,510 ($4,546).
