A video I saw a while back said it was $10,000 a wheel.

40k for all four.

20k for that little bugger I guess.

Dang, those Minilite wheels look great on that car.

http://www.minilitewheels.us/

Quote:
The original Minilite wheel, made in magnesium, was probably the most successful competition wheel in the 1960s and 70s, winning races and rallies on a variety of different cars. Now the same wheel is being produced in an affordable aluminium alloy to that original design. Manufactured in England, Minilite wheels are low pressure die cast, pressure tested, batch x-rayed and machined using the latest computer controlled equipment.

Some nice cars in this link, not sure the color on the old McLaren race car is accurate - not the best indoor color?

Even the Jag's color looks off.

I would love to have something like that.

However in addition to the 4WD for me it would have to have a 0-60 in 14 seconds or less, and enough HP to legally take it on the highway so I could cruise at 60 mph min.

And weigh less than this 8,000 lb beast below.

Unique to North America, the Fuso FG all-wheel-drive cabover is strong and highly maneuverable
I just don't know of anything in-between but did see something promising on a flatbed with other new trucks a few days ago.
