The carbon-fibre is getting more and more popular in cars. After BMW becamed the first manufacturer to use the carbon fibre in its mass production, the lightweight and strong material is starting to get more and more usage in different parts for the cars.
 
Not long ago, Volkswagen announced that it will take in consideration building carbon fibre wheels for its cars. Now, an American company is announcing a complete line of one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels. Each handcrafted wheel tips the scales at just over 13 lbs (6kg) on average.
 
Vitesse AuDessus’s new line of one-piece, full carbon fibre wheels uses prepreg carbon fibre fabric that is hand-laid and autoclave-cured in CNC-milled aluminium moulds, a process shared by Formula 1 race teams and respected Sweden-based supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg.
 
Vitesse AuDessus employs this same process for the brand's full range of bespoke carbon fibre exteriors, interiors, components and monocoques which they produce for the world's most exciting and exclusive automotive machines.
 
Aside from Vitesse AuDessus's bespoke offering, the company also produces a wide range of OEM-spec, one-piece full carbon fibre wheels for all current Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Bugatti, Bentley, Aston Martin, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and BMW models.
 
Retail pricing for OEM wheels starts at $8,875/wheel, while bespoke pricing begins at $10,125/wheel. Price factors include design, dimensions and performance requirements. Vitess AuDessus carbon fibre wheels can be shipped all over the world to both individuals and businesses.   
 
All Vitesse AuDessus's products come with a 5-year warranty against defect or failure and a replacement guarantee.
