Exactly why we wanted to get into this game and get in as early as possible. A wheel made with an additive process like this will result in different possibilities that were impossible with the subtractive method we use now with our forgings. This will make for some awesome futuristic designs that we're getting really excited about. The future is looking good

I've never washed my ti bicycle. The whole thing probably cost less than one linear inch of that wheel.

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but how hard do you think these will be to clean?

They don't plan to sell them because it's not cost effective. Couple days per wheel to make plus startup costs. Do I buy the new m3 when it comes out or a set of wheels for my 4 series for roughly the same cost? Not a tough decision...

On a serious note, I wonder if a less ambitious, simpler design might be feasible in the near future?

Sure we do: Huracan, Aventador, ZR1. These wheels would look good on day and Aventador SVJ. Cars that are more straight lines, creases, etc.

These wheels are a work of art! Mount on a car with CCBs and brake dust won't be an issue.
