Ultra-light forged ATS wheel SPRINTLIGHT for 1.200 hp “cartecjahn” Nissan GT-R

Ultra-light forged ATS wheel SPRINTLIGHT for 1.200 hp “cartecjahn” Nissan GT-R

31.01.2014: 200 km / h in just 5.5 seconds - Nissan GT-R "Alpha 12" with custom-designed ATS high-tech forged

200 km / h in just 5.5 seconds - Nissan GT-R "Alpha 12" with custom-designed ATS high-tech forged wheels belongs to the fastest sports cars approved for public roads. Customised wheels save nearly 6 kg per wheel set compared to other series forged wheels

SPRINTLIGHT - the ultra-light high-tech forged ATS wheel is an essential component of the project "Alpha 12" due to its maximum weight reduction, the maximum load capacity and an individual adjustment to the brake system. Thus Nissan GT-R of the car tuning specialist “cartecjahn” of the Upper Franconian can accelerate to 200 km / h in the just phenomenal 5.5 seconds.

At first glance, the five-spoke wheel SPRINTLIGHT in racing-black anodized finish impresses with its sporty and masculine design. The fine laser engravings on the surface of the wheel imply the high performance potential. They indicate the finest forged technology.

ATS SPRINTLIGHT for Nissan GT-R is available in racing-black anodized finish in the following sizes:

10.0 x 20

11.0 x 20

* ATS SPRINTLIGHT reduces the weight of the wheel set by 5.8 kg compared to other Nissan series forged rims.

The Nissan GT-R is standardly fitted with 10x20 inch forged wheels on the front axle and with 11x20 inch forged wheels on the rear axle. The already weight-optimized series wheels weigh in total 49.6 kg.

The ATS high-performance wheels of the same size reduce this value by almost 6 kg, reaching in total a weight of 43.8 kg.

Maximum weight reduction:  SPRINTLIGHT of ATS is constructively  adapted to the break system of Nissan  GT-R, and reduces the weight of the  wheel set by 6 kg compared to other  series forged rims.  Photo: Alexander Kassner

This uncompromising weight reduction has been achieved thanks to the very complex forging technology of the in-house motorsport and forged wheel production in Fußgönheim, Germany.

On the one hand the forged ATS wheels have a very high material density, which provides the least possible material thickness and thus an extremely low weight. On the other hand the wheels go through an undercut machining processing, in which all the weight improvable areas of the inside of the star-shaped wheel are being cut or turned.

This also contributes to the significant weight reduction of SPRINTLIGHT wheels. Thanks to the highest level of production quality, these high-tech wheels have a minimal tolerance allowance.

Finally, the constructive adaptation of the wheel design to the braking system of super sports cars ensures a further saving of materials. This very elaborate production process distinguishes ATS forged wheels from other numerous competitors and it also provides the maximum concavity for the particularly expressive style.

The decreased unsprung masses of the Nissan GT-R "Alpha 12”, whose power was increased from industrial 550 hp to 1.200 hp by “cartecjahn” and his partner GTR store, interact impressively with the ultra-lightweight SPRINTLIGHT wheels.

The result: "On the steering wheel you will immediately feel faster reactions of the wheel and tire combination and better driving dynamics," says mechanical engineer and car tuning specialist Stefan Jahn. Not only the noticeably better driving quality but also the braking performance benefit from this possibly lowest weight of these wheels. Not to mention the extreme acceleration value.

ATS SPRINTLIGHT for the Nissan GT-R is now available in racing-black anodized finish in sizes 10x20 and 11x20 inches from “cartecjahn”, Weissenstadt, Germany.
