Aston Martin Vantage gets Barracuda racing wheels

Barracuda Wheels is offering a set of Tzunamee wheels for the V8 powered Aston Martin Vantage . The set includes 9.0 x 20 inch light alloy rims on the front axle and 10.0 x 20 inch rims mounted on the rear drive axle.

The wheels feature a very aggressive design with a matte black, highly polished surface. The wheels are slapped on to the classic green V8 Vantage to add a dynamic edge to the already beautiful vehicle. In addition, the wheels are available in sizes ranging from 7.5 x 17 to 10 x 20 inches. They also come in three different color schemes: Higloss black, real chrome, and white polished.

The V8 Vantage features a 4.7 Liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 420 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque. This power is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 180 MPH.

This is more appropriate on the racetrack. Can’t wait to personally see this wheel.

Apparently, they have been quit serious about this project as they have firstly made a virtual digital concept model of it for tests! MW’s Vantage features some visual tweaked which help with the aerodynamics, and also packs more power.

Impressive set of wheels! For sure those rims are ultra light because of the thin spokes and thin rubber gutter for the tires.

Wonderful! This Aston Martin really get my attention and the wheels look rather good in combination with the racing green Aston Martin Vantage.

I agree. It looks sportier and aggressive with that kind of wheels.
