October 12th, 2010 Comments off

HRE recently introduced its 18″ Forged R40 Motorsport wheel to the public, and we wanted to make sure we were the first to get a set. HRE unleashes a direct descendant of the wheel that won the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship, now lighter, stronger and better ever and ready for competition. What better car to show off this great new wheel than Nero’s personal E92 M3 street car, which sees the race track from time to time for Drivers Education events.

HRE Performance Wheels has unveiled a NEW forged one-piece motorsport wheel for 2011, the R40 Monoblok™ for dedicated track and the highest performance street cars. This mesh-style, 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum wheel is a direct descendant of the custom-built model used by Fall-Line Motorsports to WIN the 2010 Grand-Am GS Championship in BMW M3 race cars, but now it’s available in a brand new mesh style for a wide range of applications and lighter than ever (17.5 lbs and up).

HRE R40 wheels are precision engineered to stringent German TÜV specifications in HRE’s TÜV-approved manufacturing facility for ultra light weight, high strength and unsurpassed quality. Available finishes include Satin Black, Satin Silver, Brushed with Clearcoat and more. The R40 is available in 18” diameter and widths ranging from 8.5” – 12” in Multi-lug and Center Lock versions. HRE engineers know the race can be won in the pits, so be sure to note the rattle-gun friendly open dish shape for fast wheel changes!

All HRE wheels are engineered to minimize unsprung mass and rotational inertia for optimal acceleration, handling and braking performance. Each wheel is built-to-order at HRE’s 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility for the ultimate performance solution and custom-tailored wheel buying experience. We carry the entire line of HRE Performance wheels here at Titan Motorsports, both for street and track. Call us today for the best pricing and fitment options for your vehicle.

Southern California Shop Tour : Vorsteiner

August 3rd, 2010 Comments off

As the resident Euro fanatic at Titan Motorsports, I’ve been a fan of Vorsteiner’s products for quite some time. Vorsteiner specializes in producing high quality aftermarket parts designed to compliment most modern BMWs, Porches,Mercedes and even Bentley. They balance the fine line required to improve cars that already start out as those which dreams are made of, all while improving the visual and performance aspects of the vehicles. We’ve been a dealer for some time as you might remember the Red Carrera S we built earlier this year featuring their products, however we look forward to expanding our relationship further. While on a tour of Southern California I knew my trip wouldn’t be complete without a stop by their headquarters and manufacturing facility in . Vorsteiner’s motto is “Perfection Redefined”, something that is apparent from the second you pull into the parking lot, to entering the building and seeing their pursuit of perfection with every aspect of their office,operations, and product development. In the past I’ve been turned off by most body enhancements, however Vorsteiner has always been the exception, using premium products and great design to enhance factory body lines not distract from it. The end results are cars that look like a steroid injected versions of what the factory should have produced, given less restraints in a desire to appease the masses.

This beautiful Porsche Panamera was sitting front and center in the parking lot, while currently only sporting Vorsteiner’s latest wheels, it’s due for a complete makeover in the coming weeks. Having seen the renderings, I must admit the future body offerings for this vehicle take a sporty sedan, and turn it into a true sport scar with 4 doors.

Next to the Panamera were 2 M3s, a stock white one and the menacing olive drab green GTRS3 version. As someone who likes to look towards at old military machinery for inspiration (see our camo 996tt), this vehicle struck a cord with me. The GTRS3 Package consists of replacement carbon fiber front bumper, with modular splitter, extended front fenders, side skirts, rear quart panel extensions, and a matching widened rear bumper with integrated carbon diffuser. The kit also includes Vorsteiner’s V-308 modular 3 pieces wheel set, which feature concave faces and big lips that rival any wheel I’ve seen in the aftermarket in terms of quality and great fitment. These same wheels can be specced and ordered for many other makes and models, in just about any color combination you can come up with. Andreas informed me that in the coming weeks the white car will get it’s window sticker removed, and receive the same GTRS3 wide body kit, with a more subtle color treatment.

Vorsteiner also produced a high quality line of parts geared towards the premium Japanese cars such as the GTR and Lexus ISF branded through their sister company Ventross. At Titan Motorsports we’re proud to be one of the premier Vorsteiner and Ventross dealers in the Southeast. We look forward to further expanding this great relationship in the future, stay tuned as Nero’s M3 gets some much needed Vorsteiner love in the coming weeks.
