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.
Press release after the jump.
Aston Martin – a brand as typically English as afternoon tea, or horse racing at Ascot. The small model of the classic English brand, the V8 powered Vantage, is entering into a stylistically dynamic liaison with the TZUNAMEE rim, produced by the innovative wheel manufacturer BARRACUDA WHEELS from Stein am Rhein. The front axle is adorned with 9.0 x 20 inch light alloy rims, while 10.0 x 20 inch rims are mounted on the rear drive axle.
With its striking drop center and secondary spokes, which enable a lightweight design with high static strength, the TZUNAMEE wheel has an extremely aggressive look. It imparts breathtaking design and lightweight athleticism – precisely the attributes that characterize Aston Martin.
The matte black/polished, highly polished surface suits the V8 Vantage, painted in classic green, especially well. In addition, the wheel is available in sizes from 7.5 x 17 to 10 x 20 inches, and in the following colour schemes: Higloss black, real chrome, and white polished.
