Description

Are you looking for an exclusive art piece to add a fun and classic feel to your garage or office? Or perhaps a special gift for your car obsessed partner? Our first release of the black Fuchs Inspired Wheel embodies all these properties. Porsche fans, as well as classic and modern car fanatics, will instantly recognise this timeless design.

We start with 72 layer, solid carbon fibre plate as the display panel. The 145mm by 145mm plate is CNC machined with a recess to allow the 1 to 4:78 scale wheel to be installed. The wheel was created by scaling down an actual Fuchs wheel into a meticulously detailed CAD file. Using this file a billet piece of 6061 aluminium is CNC machined into life by a 3 axis machine. Our wheels are anodised black to ensure a durable and long lasting tarnish free finish. No regular polishing and no oxidation. Finally, the wheel is laser engraved with Rotor And Piston logo.

The carbon fibre sheet and wheel are secured to a 5052 aluminium stand. The stand is custom fabricated and silver anodised. Like the wheel, the stand will remain tarnish free and not degrade like a raw finish. The final step is a discreet laser engraved Rotor And Piston logo. A bespoke grade 5 titanium allen key bolt holds all three parts together. The end result is a product that is nice to look at from all angles, not just the front.

These are same materials found in many exotic and supercars. We utilise the same high performance manufacturing methods used by marques such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, Koenigsegg and Mclaren.

Every detail has been carefully considered when producing this automotive lifestyle piece. The presentation box is no exception. Using CNC technology to shape the foam inlay, it allows for an exact fit of the art piece. We believe we have created a very unique and beautiful automotive artwork for the most passionate of car enthusiasts.

We have a limited number of black Fuchs Inspired Wheels in this production run. Once the current artwork stock is sold, it may be some time until we do another run, if at all. So if you love this version, now would be the time to order. Remembering it will tracked and express shipped to your door.
