MUCH MORE FRESH KIT

Fast Car - - Contents -

What we’ve got here is not only a stun­ning vari­a­tion on the clas­sic five-spoker, but it’s yet an­other cast wheel for 2017 from a firm known more for its ut­terly bat-shit cus­tom forged rims. Over the past sea­son or two crazy forged Dampfhammer de­signs like the Zer­matt and Fleis­chwolf have been spot­ted on a se­lect few show-win­ners on this side of the At­lantic. But it’s the Euro­pean car mar­ket in the USA where they have re­ally made their name. Ba­si­cally, when these guys drop a new hoop you can for­get them mak­ing waves. Over there they just pre­pare for a full-on tsunami!

The awe­some-look­ing Hallstatt though, is all about the firsts. It’s their first off-the-shelf cast rim for starters, but it’s also the first aimed more at of­fer­ing a us­able, al­most mass mar­ket, size to VAG and Mercedes lovers on both sides of the pond.

The idea is, by keep­ing down the prices com­pared to their su­per-ex­clu­sive forged rims, they’ll si­mul­ta­ne­ously be cut­ting the dreaded im­port tax too. Clever, eh? Ei­ther way, this one is a guar­an­teed win­ner. www.dampfhammer.net
