Antigua dark, for the BMW top-of-the line and luxury models


365 dreamlike beaches on no more than 281 sq km – that is Antigua. It’s a yachtsman’s paradise. Here, off and on this picturesque island in the Caribbean, yachting isn’t only done, people live for it. No wonder then that the new premium wheel bears the name AEZ Antigua.

It is available in an elegant and sporty high-gloss version and an expressive and trendy matt-black version. Both Antigua High Gloss and Antigua dark have been designed for BMW top-of-the–line and luxury cars. And as with the design of racing boats, this wheel’s design also wants to reduce and ideally balance weight. After all, a BMW is always a powerful and dynamic car. Their high-end cars also have to provide utmost comfort, however, which is why the Antigua dark keeps the unsprung masses as small as possible.

In visual terms, the matt-black AEZ flagship is a strikingly stylish piece that also conveys the impression of having been specially developed for BMW high-end automobiles. The designers and engineers exclusively focused upon the 5, 6 and 7-series and what their drivers might want: The classic cross spoke receives a new and slightly more sporty interpretation, starting with the ten slim spokes that unfold towards the rim well. It is continued with the visually light and dynamic centre and ends with the cast AEZ logotype. Depending upon how you look at it, the space between the spokes looks either pentagonal or hexagonal. In matt black, this wheel has a powerful presence indeed and seems to want to be “on the road”, no matter what.

Just like the high-gloss variant, the extravagant Antigua dark also fits the large BMWs like a tailor-made suit. Widths and offset make the wheel flush with the fender skirts. No modifications are necessary. It’s all “plug & play“. You can even use the serial wheel bolts. The design and technology, for BMW high-end cars, is AEZ’s, the premium wheel manufacturer.
