Carbon Revolution claims the wheels reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), too, since the carbon fiber material has natural damping properties. If there’s a downside, it’s the cost of a set of four, estimated to be $15,000. Like the saying goes, “speed costs money, so how fast do you want to spend?”
A few weeks back we told you about the revolutionary one-piece carbon fiber wheels developed by Australia’s Carbon Revolution. Built first for the Porsche 911, the 19×8.5 (front) and 19×12 (rear) wheels save some ten pounds of unsprung weight per corner, delivering noticeable gains in acceleration, cornering and fuel economy.
