Grigio Medio LaFerrari Gets Vossen 1 of 1 Forged Wheels

Ferrari only makes a hypercar once every decade or so, and that's if it's not in financial trouble at that time. That's why the LaFerrari is one of the most significant cars of our generation.

Owning one of only 499 examples is a privilege, but for some people that isn't enough. Perhaps it's the need to stand out or the need to try and improve on perfection, but many people have tried to customize the LaFerrari.

Changing the body would be the automotive equivalent of committing homicide, so we're glad that this project only targets the wheels. "The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car, drawing together the finest expression of the marque’s technical capabilities in both GT and Formula 1 engineering," the company says.

They're not kidding either, as the mating of gasoline and electricity has resulted in a combined output of well over 900 horsepower, all going to the rear wheels. Ferrari never let anybody do a timed lap against the McLaren P1 or Porsche 918 Spyder. We have a sneaking suspicion that it's the slowest of the three, but also the most fun.

How could you possibly improve that? Enter the Vossen Bespoke Design Program: LaFerrari Forged Wheels. The Florida-based wheel specialist utilized its 20,000 square-foot TUV Verified forged wheel manufacturing facility in Miami to give the LaFerrari a new pair of shoes, one that better fits its personality.

Over 100 different types of 3D mapping were required to create wheels that meet not only the client's specifications but also the clearances for the brake calipers and suspension.

The chosen design is a simple 12-spoke one, toughened using the FaroArm technology. A black finish turns the wheels into a discrete frame for the red brake calipers and the Grigio Medio paintjob. As for the size, we are dealing with 20x9-inch at the front and 21x12.5-inch rear alloys shod in Pirelli's P Zero Corsa tires.
