Since 1999, German auto tuner WheelsAndMore has been in the business of redefining sports, luxury and exotic cars. They specialize in customizing “multi-piece special lightweight wheels”, pairing these “new shoes” with even more power – offering valve-controlled exhaust systems for sports and supersport cars, as well as power upgrades. All these upgrades are handcrafted to ensure high-end quality for these customized cars. They offer customization for high-end vehicles such as the Ford GT, the Maserati MC Stradale, Mercedes-AMG GT R, and the latest being the McLaren 570GT.
Customization of the McLaren 570GT starts by adding sports catalytic converters, low-pressure exhaust system, and giving it a software upgrade. These allow the 570GT’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to produce 650 PS (641 horsepower) and 700 Nm (516 lb.-ft.) of torque – that’s about 80 PS (79 hp) and 100 Nm (74 lb.-ft.) more than the standard Grand Tourer. With this much power, the tuned 570GT has the capacity to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in only 3.2 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than the standard version. Although packed with more power, it does not change the top speed record at 328 km/h (204 mph).
WheelsAndMore also offers appearance upgrades. These include a set of height-adjustable springs – but no worries, these will not affect the nose-lift system (the one that’s responsible for assuring passengers a smooth ride over speed bumps) of the vehicle. The German tuning company also offers 20-inch front and 21-inch rear F.I.W.E handmade ultralight forged wheels – WheelsAndMore’s very own creation – which are respectively wrapped in 235/30 and 295/30 ContiSportContact 6 tires. And according to them, these are “nicer and wilder” than the standard 570GT rims, perfect for those who want to kick it up a notch in terms of exterior design.
Various celebrities – from the film, music and sports industries – have tapped on WheelsAndMore to customize their vehicles as they see fit for their individual preferences. Of course, the German tuning company delivers their best, creating the most exclusive vehicles in the world. Their expertise in creating discreet designs for wheels have earned them worldwide respect. Aside from the beautifully customized McLaren 570GT, WheelsAndMore customized wheels pair perfectly well with cars such as the Aston Martin DB89, the Bentley Continental, the Maserati Gran Turimo, the Ferrari California and the Rolls Royce Wraith. And we’re even more excited for more designs.
Just a quick note though, if you’re looking for more “wow” factor, then there’s the new Feather Wrap offered by MSO – McLaren’s bespoke division. Imagine getting your McLaren 570GT wrapped in 10,000 carbon-veined artificial feathers plus this sweet customization from WheelsAndMore, you’d probably swoop through the streets in a breeze. If anyone does get this upgrade, we’d give them a standing ovation.
