Classic cars have been getting all kinds of love and money lately. Classic wheels, not so much. HRE has introduced a new line called the Vintage Series that puts old rims in a new light.
There are three in the range for now. The 454 “five-window” you’ll recognize from old Lamborghini Countach posters, the 505 “thick five-spoke” reminscent of the Ferrari 288 GTO and F40, and the 501 “mesh lace” worn to terrific effect by racing Porsches from decades past.
Sized from 18- to 20-inch diameters and from seven to 14 inches wide, all are forged of aerospace-grade alloys and are hand-finished to the customer’s order. They just might make it all right to work backwards on your next car project: get the wheels first, add the Countach LP5000 QV later. There’s a press release with more info after the jump and, of course, a high-res image gallery.
