Porsche just became the world’s first automotive company to offer lightweight wheels with braided carbon fibre.
An option for the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, the wheels are created using the largest carbon fibre braiding machine in the world, densely compacting 86 square feet of the lux material to make a single wheel.
18.7 lbs less than conventional alloys and 20% stronger, the advanced tires trail the surface of the road better and add a dosage of oomph to both acceleration and braking for a more dynamic driving experience. And it's obviously not all about performance – these things look incredible.
The ultimate wheels for the ultimate driver, 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series buyers can add to their ride for an additional $18,000.
