Exclusive 19-Inch Wheels for the
Porsche 911 Turbo
Stuttgart - Dr. Ing. h.c. F.
Porsche AG, Stuttgart, now offers new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels
exclusively for the 911 Turbo models as an absolute highlight in
the range of highly specialised, customised features available
exclusively on new models (ex works). The most outstanding
feature of these forged aluminium lightweight wheels with their
seven U-shaped double spokes is the unique, newly developed
central locking. Instead of the wheel nuts generally used in
motorsport, these very special wheels come with wheel bolts
fastening the new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels firmly and safely on
the wheel bearing.
The innovative security mechanism
on the wheel bearing is made up of a cartridge fitted in the
wheel hub 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 clearly and
distinctly from the silver-coloured paintwork on the 19-inch RS
The special design of the new
wheels is derived from the wheels on Porsche’s RS Spyder racing
car, the sports prototype from Weissach which only recently won
all titles in the ALMS American Le Mans Series for the third
time in a row.
Porsche RS Spyder
A further outstanding achievement of the
Porsche RS Spyder is that it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its class
right from the start in its very first try and also brought home the
winner’s title in the European Le Mans Series.
The new wheel will be available as an
option on the 911 Turbo as of January 2009, selling at a base price in
the Euro countries of Euro 2,950.-. The retail price of the 19-inch RS
Spyder wheel in Germany including 19 per cent VAT is Euro 3,510.50.
