A special design of wheel, derived from those used on the Porsche RS Spyder racecar, is now available exclusively for the 911 Turbo model.
The Porsche RS Spyder sports prototype recently won all titles in the ALMS American Le Mans Series for the third time in a row. A further outstanding achievement of the Porsche RS Spyder is that it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its class this year at its very first attempt and also brought home the winner's title in the European Le Mans Series.
The iconic Porsche 911 Turbo is widely recognized as the standard bearer for the rear-engined sports coupe. The latest all-wheel drive model, introduced in 2006, offers a power output of 480hp from its flat-six 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged engine. The 911 Turbo can accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.7sec and on to a top speed of 193mph.
An outstanding feature of these new lightweight forged aluminum wheels with their seven U-shaped double spokes is the unique central locking device. Instead of the wheel nuts generally used in motorsport, these very special wheels come with bolts to fasten the 19" RS Spyder rims firmly and safely to the wheel hub.
The innovative security mechanism on the hub is comprised of a cartridge fitted with spring-mounted security bolts. Standing out clearly and impressively, the bolts on the new central locking system are eloxy-plated in titanium color and thus differ distinctly from the silver-colored paint finish on the 19" RS Spyder wheels.
