They mention Roush as helping. Was that with the engine?

You ain't lying. Having seen the matte finish CF wheel in person I thought they were ok but didn't need them. That gloss CF wheel...I had to check that box. They also ended up being a slightly bigger weight reduction than I thought they'd be. The BBS standard wheel is already a reasonably lightweight wheel, but the CF wheel cuts a pretty good amount.

It's decided then. And I thought I was over dark wheels.

The black car is going to be used for marketing. Every car from the two cars they took to Vegas on is a unit eligible to be sold publicly (I am told).

Bill's car is 0001, but it's a special paint job.

Does anyone know the weight difference between the CF Wheel and the forged wheel?

The full set is a little over 9 kilos lighter.

You can watch at the link below:

It's all happening now.

In very rapid succession they've rolled off the white and blue cars from Las Vegas, a Liquid Red Stripe delete car, a new black with orange stripes/calipers and Launch Control interior car...
