Corniche presents Le Mans alloy wheels
The wheel manufacturer Corniche have just released a new model named after the historic endurance race at the Circuit de la Sarthe. The rim features a multi spoke design and a custom colored rim bead to suit the buyer’s need. Personally I like the flat black with a red lip look.
Press release after the jump.
Ever since the race driving actor Steve McQueen has produced his film about the 24 hours race at Le Mans, he confirmed that this event is not only about sports, but also aesthetics. The wheel manufacturer CORNICHE pays tribute to the special significance of this race with the new model Le Mans.

Ten razor-thin and slightly curved V-spokes are the design basis of this wheel which is cast in one-piece. The delicate struts extend far outside into the rim bead and therefore render a sportive appearance. The lowered hub additionally enhances this dynamic impression. Moreover, this wheel design allows the use of large braking systems. Therefore, the CORNICHE Le Mans does not only reflect the aesthetics of this big race, but also presents itself as a fully-fledged sports wheel.
The wheel looks especially dynamic in an entire matt black finish. The version with matt black spoke flanks and a silver-polished surface is the elegant counterpart. Both models can be individualised with ColorTrim. Each wheel can be adapted to the car colour and the taste of the driver with a coloured ring embedded in the outer rim flange.
