That's some real unobtanium right there. Name your ransom, er, I mean price.

Very good that it is complete with the hub. Should fetch a pretty penny...

In general, this is only good for the pre-airbag steering wheel cars. If you want to install it on a later car with the Gallardo steering wheel, you also need the leather steering column cover with the aluminum stalk bracket.

I don't believe this was ever on a car.

I think the Gallardo style wheel is cool, but not as cool as the propeller wheel, but I don't think I would change it out. The Lotus style wheel is so boring looking and doesn't match the car in any way.

Hi Artem - The line was probably a dozen deep before you ever joined the forum.

I don't wish to start a kerfuffle but wspeer can do whatever he likes. However it turns out, it'll be nice to see another Spyker properly adorned. :^)

All - Can anyone shed some light on exactly why these wheels / hubs cannot be manufactured? What's the big deal? There is now a "loose" wheel and hub in the wild - what is stopping us from taking them to the right artisan or manufacturer and saying "copy those". With all of the technology advances, it ought to be a snap to copy it exactly.
