I only wish they could be ordered bare carbon like in the pics. Why cover up that beautiful carbon fiber.
Gentlemen,

You will be able to order those wheels as pictured clear coated.

You can get the full set of GT350R carbon wheels as a replacement part for about $11k.
That's less than I thought and not a bad price.

As excited as I am about that wheel I'm not going to torture myself with configurations until I hear from FOMOCO. Too much like being a teenager looking at Dad's PBMs.

You CAN order them like in the pics. If you couldn't they wouldn't be showing them do you like that. In fact, as I understand it the CF wheels come ONLY in exposed fashion, with either gloss or matte clearcoat over top.

Now the real question is how much will this option cost? I'd guess $20K

Guess I'm old school - I need a little bit of bling on a car .... just not into CF wheels.

Those are all of the gloss finish. Ford didn't put out any photos with the matte finish.

The 2 up close shots of the lugs/spokes are matte finish...
