Aircore Carbon fiber wheels

Hollow, one piece carbon fiber wheels?  Cool use of technology here.  With the only bit of metal being the filler valve, these wheels are incredibly light and strong, something you really do need on a car that’s expected to be capable of 270mph, the Koenigsegg Agera R.  Designing a wheel for high speeds is no small task….the 253mph Bugatti Veyron, for examples, requires its wheels to be stress tested or replaced at every fourth tire change (at a cost of >$10k each!).  Of course, carbon fiber wheels are relatively new to applications such as this, so owners may yet be stuck with comparable replacement costs.

Now, back to reality and perspective here.  How does a 1140hp, 270mph car make any sense whatsoever?  I love cars, really I do, but this is just a ridiculous machine that serves absolutely no purpose except to further enhance consumerism and deplete this planet’s natural resources.  It’s a joke. A fast, impressive joke, but a joke nonetheless.
