An outstanding feature of these new, lightweight forged aluminium wheels with their seven U-shaped double spokes is the unique central locking device. Instead of the wheel nuts generally used in motor sport, these very special wheels come with bolts to fasten the 19-inch RS Spyder rims firmly and safely on 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 are eloxy-plated in titanium colour and thus differ distinctly from the silver-coloured paint finish on the 19-inch RS Spyder wheels.
The Porsche 911 Turbo costs from £101,830. The new wheel will be available as an option on the 911 Turbo from January 2009 and is priced at £2,338.00.
