ATS specially designed 20-inch forged wheels put Audi R8 super sports cars on a diet

ATS forged wheel TWINLIGHT has been specifically adapted to the brakes of Audi R8 to maximise weight reduction and has now reduced around 8 kg per wheel set notwithstanding its 20-inch size compared to the smaller series forged wheels


The Audi R8 is a truly high-performance athlete that has excellent driving properties thanks to its 525 hp. This has motivated ATS engineers to improve the performance of the car even further. The ATS TWINLIGHT has been tailored in a spacious 20-inch format to the Audi R8 brakes, whereby ATS forged wheel production differs from most competitors.



ATS TWINLIGHT is being produced for Audi R8 and R8 Spyder in ceramic polished and racing-black front polished in the sizes: 9.0 x 20 / 10.0 x 20



Such significant weight reduction was achieved thanks to the modern forged technology and production quality control of low tolerance level. In addition, individual wheel alignment for each vehicle offers a maximum concavity for an expressive style.


The result is impressive: The TWINLIGHT brings the wheel size of 9.0 x 20-inches to just 9.1 kg/wheel on the front axle and the 10 x 20-inch wheel to only 10.3 kg/wheel on the rear axle.


This means a total weight reduction of about 8 kg per wheel set compared to the smaller 19-inch series forged wheels. The low weight leads to a reduction of the unsprung masses and thus contributes to a noticeably enhanced driving dynamic of the R8.


In order to achieve top quality, the exclusive high-tech wheels are being produced in the motorsport and forged wheel production plant in Germany whereby each wheel is checked manually to be eventually approved when reaching a high quality standard. 


Fine laser engravings indicate "Made in Germany" as a sign of top quality forged technology in a subtle way.


ATS TWINLIGHT

Size:        5-hole connection 9.0 x 20 and 10.0 x 20
