Fitting a car with new wheels isn’t that big of a deal. Unless you actually own something really, really special, like, say, a hypercar.
The Bugatti Chiron definitely belongs in the hypercar niche, what with the quad-turbo Q16 churning out a round, nice 1,500 PS, and that’s why we decided to share an example that has been fitted with new rims.
Made by Vossen, the LC2-C1 features a split five-spoke pattern and a brushed look, which was applied subsequently to polishing. Before being fitted to the Chiron, though, the rims received a Light Smoke transparent finish, and the company’s special center caps that sit where the Bugatti logo used to be.
Shod with Pirelli P Zero tires, the wheels aren’t exclusive to the Chiron, as they can be had from 19- to 24-inch in size and in different finishes. Vossen is asking $6,000 for the base set, although we reckon that, with the options, these wheels probably cost as much as a small SUV – and we’re not even counting the new rubber. And that’s not bad at all, considering that the Bugatti Chiron is priced at around $3 million.
This is actually Vossen’s second encounter with the owner of this particular Chiron, who previously took a Ferrari LaFerrari to the wheelmaker some three years ago. The company then created a set of 9×20-inch front and 12.5×21-inch rear one-off forged rims for the hybrid hypercar, as part of their Bespoke Design Program.
