Time to rediscover the aesthetics of alloys

ferrari-enzo-alloysIt’s sometimes easy to forget the huge range of alloys available to us. Go to the right alloy provider, however, and they’ll open your eyes as to the possibilities – alloys that will truly make a statement about you and your personality.

If you’re lucky enough to own some of the world’s best cars, however, you might not have to make a switch. As this post on Evo.co.uk demonstrates, there are cars which come with mind-blowing alloys already attached.

One of the marques they highlight is Ferrari, whose Enzo and F40 both come with beautiful alloys. The F40 wheels, for example, come with a jagged five pointed star design that compliments the car’s dynamic design perfectly.

Their choices are an intriguing blend of the modern and the classic.

One set of alloys from the 1960s and 70s, for example, particularly merited Evo’s attention thanks to their lightweight construction and gaps that allowed better air cooling – all resulting from a simple five spoke design that was initially only 4.5 inches wide.

This is of course the Fuch alloy wheel that came with the Porsche 991 during this era, proof, as they say, that ‘gorgeous wheel design need not necessarily be the biggest’.
