It’s amazing how the BMW M3 Coupe has been the industry’s benchmark, celebrated over generations and then vanished overnight. In name, at least. Enter the all-new F80 M3 Sedan and the first-ever BMW M4 Coupe, a reinvention of a legendary car. With the launch of the new F80 M3 Sedan, and now the all-new BMW M4 Coupe, a new chapter in wheel development begins. Based on our meticulous and vehicle-specific engineering process, we first begin by carefully measuring the vehicle braking system. With the new addition of an optional state-of-the-art M Carbon Ceramic Brakes package, it’s necessary to make sure the correct data for both the standard and CCB braking systems are collected in order to develop wheels that are geometrically compatible with both systems. After the brake profiles have been developed, we proceed with a detailed digital measure of both front and rear suspension systems, front fenders, and rear quarter panels to determine accurate clearances. Our developing process allows us to quickly create wheel programs for newly-released platforms with specifications that can be individually adjusted to the customer’s personal preferences. Factors such as curb weight, weight distribution, acceleration and braking g-forces are also used to develop a wheel that is weight-optimized for the actual vehicle application that is designed for. This research allows our team to create a vehicle specific fitment that is matched with the lightweight architecture we are known for. Below you will find our most recent development for the all-new BMW M4. This Alpine White BMW M4 sports our 20-inch MonoForged™ VS53 Concave wheels finished in Hand-Brushed Tinted Copper. The setup consists of a 20×9.5-inch Front, 20×11-inch Rear configuration wrapped in Hankook V12 Evo2 255/30/20 & 285/30/20 tires.
To lower the car a set of the just-released H&R SuperSport systems was installed. Stay tuned for future development for both the F80 M3 Sedan & the all-new F82 M4 Coupe. Please click the images for full resolution. Photo Credit: Wes Howell Photography -

Roads & Rides nos trae este video documental sobre el primer prototipo del GT40. Muy interesatne
The Ford GT 108 is an important car in the history of racing. It was the first car built by Ford Advanced Vehicles division. The first of four roadsters and the only Ford GT driven by Jim Clark.
Ford GT 108 was built for Shelby American as a prototype, test bed and promotional platform. It never saw any competition on the track but drivers such as Ken Miles, Sir Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham all had a chance behind the wheel.
Even Carroll Shelby and Henry Ford II had their turn in the car…You can almost imagine the conversation going on between those two as they drove around the track in GT 108.

Bonito video de ADV1 donde nos muestra sus inicios y sus logros en la construcción de llantas forjadas y de diseño de altas prestaciones. como siempre todos los videos que realizan son dignos de ver

As much as any other car, the Ferrari 330 P4 is the embodiment and culmination of an entire era of racing. With its low-slung stance and voluptuous lines, it is also among the most visually stunning cars ever produced. Combine these factors and the word “icon” slips to the tip of one’s tongue.
Still smarting from losing the Constructor’s International Sports Prototype Championship to Ford in 1965 and 1966 — and, in 1966, watching a trio of Ford GT40s finish 1-2-3 at Le Mans — Enzo Ferrari turned to his chief engineer, Mauro Forghieri, with a simple instruction: win. In world then dominated by Carroll Shelby and Ford’s formidable 7-liter engines, this would be no easy undertaking.
What resulted from Forghieri’s mandate was the 330 P4, arguably the greatest Ferrari endurance race car of all time. Based on the 330 P3 — and almost identical cosmetically — the 330 P4 represented a significant mechanical upgrade from anything Ferrari had run previously and, in 1967, it would return Ferrari to the pinnacle of sports prototype racing.
The highlight of the 1967 season came at the 24 Hours of Daytona, a race that would come to be known as The Revenge of Il Commendatore. Led by Chris Amon and Lorenzo Bandini in a 330 P4 (and trailed by Mike Parkes and Ludovico Scarfiotti in another 330 P4), Ferrari finished 1-2-3 at the hallowed Florida circuit. Soon thereafter, a pair of P4s finished 1-2 at Monza, and while Ford again won at Le Mans, P4s finished second and third and Ferrari was once again in possession of the sports prototype title.
Rules changes concerning engine displacement spelled the end of the 330 P4s in European racing, but by that time, the car had cemented its place in the pantheon of endurance racing.
