Vorsteiner BMW VR-7 Sportiv Aero Package

Posted on 03.10.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

We can finally pull the curtain off a little side project we’ve developed with Vorsteiner.  The aero wizards are using MotorworldHype’s ”Grand Sport Sedan” F01 BMW 7 Series project (AKA ”Biggie”) to show off the new VR-7 Sportiv Aero package.  The VR-7 Sportiv Aero package was a design collaboration between RJ and Vorsteiner’s own designers.  From the start of this project RJ and Vorsteiner wanted the Sportiv Aero package to be an example of a performance asthetic driven by subtlety and I’m going to go ahead and say I think we pulled it off.  We wouldn’t have been able to bring “Biggie” along this far without the help of Vorsteiner, Michelin, H&R Springs, and Street Concepts!  Thanks to all of our partners for their support!

   

   

 

Press Release:

Vorsteiner releases the VR-7 Sportiv Aero Package

Vorsteiner is proud to announce the release of the BMW VR-7 Sportiv Aero Package for the BMW F01 & F02 7 Series. Vorsteiner specializes in developing aero enhancements that complement BMW’s line of vehicles and the VR-7 Sportiv Aero Package continues Vorsteiner’s philosophy of sporty yet understated elegance. The Vorsteiner Package enhances the shape and form of the BMW 7 Series with the addition of the VR-7 Carbon Fiber Add-On Front Spoiler, the VR-7 Carbon Fiber Add-On Rear Spoiler, and the change to VR-7 Carbon Fiber Replacement Rear Diffuser.

The VR-7 Add-On Front Spoiler lends its more aggressive lines to the front fascia of the elegant 7 Series giving the vehicle a more commanding front profile and sense of sportiness. Not only does the VR-7 Add-On Front Spoiler provides for a more prominent and confident tone in the overall front-end design but it also adds an increase in front-end downforce and stability.

The VR-7 Replacement Diffuser takes on a new motif, featuring subtle contours, edges, and indentations that complement the body lines of the new 750i yet contribute to its new sportive attitude . Its bold undertones perfectly embody Vorsteiner’s traditional of blending purpose, function, and distinctive style.

The featured BMW 750i is equipped with 21 inch Vorsteiner V-102 Forged Monoblock wheels highlighting a concave split five-spoke design that extends to the outer edge of the wheel, which continues to exemplify Vorsteiner’s goal to create a stature of sportiness. The front and rear wheel dimensions are more assertive and measure in at 21″ x 9″ (front) and 21″ x 10.5″ (rear). The wheels shown are fitted with Vorsteiner recommended Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. Tire Specs come in at 255/30-21 for the front and 285/30-21 for the rear. The stance of the vehicle was further enhanced by H&R’s super sport suspension package, lowering it by 48 mm.

The V-102 is available in the following finishes:

  • Brushed Aluminum
  • Chrome
  • Gunmetal
  • Black
  • Silver
  • Textured Black
  • Texture Gunmetal

Custom finishes are available on request.

The V-102 includes Vorsteiner anodized aluminum carbon fiber center caps.

RJ’s 7 Series AKA “Biggie” Gets Some New Shoes (UPDATE: Now With Specs!)

Posted on 02.11.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Like a proud papa RJ is showing off the new shoes on MWH’s BMW 750 project car AKA “Biggie”.  He picked up a set of V102′s from Vorsteiner and then it was shipped over to paint to get some black accents done.  It looks like its coming along quite nicely!  Next time you see Biggie he’ll be sporting some carbon fiber.  More on that later.

UPDATE:  I got some specifics on everything thats been done so far and it all equates to FRESH!  Check it out:

-It’s dropped two full inches on H&R’s new super sport spring package

-The rubber has been switched to Michelin Pilot Sport 2′s (255/30 – 21 front and 285/30 – 21 rear)

-The V102′s are 21 inches at all corners and 10.5 inches wide in the back with 9 inch widths in the front.

-All the trim (grill, front bumper trim, side marker trim, and trunk trim along with ceramic coating the exhaust tips matte black) was done at Street Concepts in Anaheim.
