The world’s largest manufacturer of one-piece carbon fiber wheels has announced a major price reduction on its product. Carbon Revolution supplies wheels to Ford for the Shelby GT350R Mustang and GT supercar as well as several other high-end vehicles. Because of these contracts, the company can now employ economies of scale that have reduced carbon fiber wheel prices significantly.
“The new pricing is the direct result of manufacturing optimization made possible by the rapid growth of the business driven by OEM supply,” explained Brett Gass, Executive Director at Carbon Revolution.
“Efficiencies in scale thanks to higher manufacturing volumes, as well as new automation in our purpose-built Australian factory is allowing us to pass these benefits on to aftermarket customers,” he continued.
A set of four Carbon Revolution CR-9 wheels will now cost from $11,850 (MSRP) for five-bolt fitments. This represents a reduction of approximately $4,000 compared to the previous retail price. Furthermore, a set of four Carbon Revolution CR-9 wheels with Porsche center lock fittings is now only $13,850.
