Form Follows Speed: Lamborghini rim moulds.
These are original Lamborghini rim moulds, resin forms for the wheels of Lamborghini‘s ‚Sesto Elemento‘, first presented in Paris in 2010. Its name referred to the sixth element in the periodic table: Carbon (or carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic, used for the body, chassis and other components of the supersportscar). The production model was limited to 20 vehicles and cost about 2.9 million US$.
So here we have two pieces of car design history, now laqcuered in original Lamborghini colour ‚Giallo Corona‘. Each block weighs approx. 30-40kg (so please don’t hang them on a lightweight wall). They would fit perfectly into a collector’s garage – or into a skycraper’s penthouse.
