When it comes to Corvette C8, race enthusiasts are all about the Corvette C8-R. This supercar was designed to have upgraded interior and exterior features, which means most of the features up front and out back are bespoke to the race car. This exotic car is far lighter compared to the C8, and it is a lot wider (4.6 inches) and lower (3.4 inches) than the standard C8 Corvette. On top of that, things like the engine, aerodynamics, and an enhanced Active Fuel Management range are all features that set this race car, the Corvette C8-R Stingray, apart from its counterpart the road legal, Corvette C8.
Manufactured by VR Forged, the D01 Wheel is a visually stunning 1pc forged monoblock wheel that features a unique design that makes it stand apart. The wheel was manufactured using a 10,000-ton press, so it is no surprise that these wheels are incredibly strong. With several “V” elements, the wheel is a perfect match for the Corvette C8-R Stingray and any luxury or exotic vehicle. The machine work near the center of the wheel draws your eye in while the elegance of the outward spokes keeps the wheel aesthetically pleasing. The D01 Wheels by VR Forged are available in Matte Black, Satin Bronze, Gloss Black, and Brushed finishes.
