2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R Wheels Win Popular Science Innovation Award

The 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R wheels, made of super light carbon fiber wheels, were recognized by Popular Science as one of the greatest innovations in the automotive industry this year. The Shelby’s wheels weigh 19 lb, 15 lb lighter than regular aluminum wheels, which greatly improves the car’s acceleration, along with better rigidity than aluminum for better handling. They’re also insulated with a ceramic coating similar to what’s used in space shuttles, according to Ford, which helps maintain the integrity of the wheels in high heat. The reduced weight of the wheels makes for a “60-pound total reduction in unsprung weight, and a 40% drop in rotational inertia,” according
