new 22″ motorsport wheel from AC Schnitzer
It’s polite to look a person in the eye during a conversation. Not easy to do when you’re standing next to his BMW X5 or X6 with the new Type VII motorsport wheel from AC Schnitzer. Because this three-piece wheel is impressive not just by its sheer size of 22″, but because it draws the eye of the observer by a wealth of striking details.
The reduced base layout however means the wheels never look over-decorative. The total of ten spoke pairs of the AC Schnitzer Type VII motorsport wheel alternate in angle between “tuning fork” and classic V-shape.
The resulting openings give recurrent glimpses of the background and draw the braking system into the overall visual impression without bringing too much transparency into play. As a result, the wheel always remains the focus of attention. A further exciting duality which involuntarily draws the eye is the colour contrast between the black-painted interior and the polished outer bed. Even on dark-coloured vehicles, the Type VII motorsport wheel steals the limelight perfectly and does not merge visually with its tyre. Further accents are set by the wheel bolts and the star-shaped hub area.
A masterpiece which only has one drawback: you can’t see it from the driver’s seat. An AC Schnitzer tip: just drive past a large reflective window – you’re allowed that much vanity!
