What size are those P40s's? I thought the smallest they go are 19"?

Nice! Thanks for sharing. Cut roof brings out awesome lines and lowers COG; but might lack sufficient headroom for taller guys unless they also installed low swung racing seats like Sabelt, Bride, RaceTech, etc. Road visibility might also be an issue too. Oh well, form over function as they say.

Custom Recaro seats and Momo steering wheel are fitted. Probably why the car has back up sensors installed. I would imagine it's difficult to see out the back.

Here's an in car video of the original Sportster:

Oh alright, because HRE made a special order for my dad's GT3RS with 18" P40s and at the time it was a one of. But I guess they have released it to the public. Maybe you guys will be seeing another Abarth on here with those wheels ;)

ALL of the P40S wheels are custom order. They don't stock them, so if you are looking for a set, just give them a call and order them. Pretty sure they are going to be VERY expensive. Some of their "base" model wheels start at around $3,800.00 and go way up from there.

They are superb looking wheels though. IF they email me back, I will share the quote with everyone.

Love the chopped top, wish mine were chopped but I'd hate to have to shell out the # for such a massive mod.

Well just got an email from HRE. Wheels are priced at $1,600 ...... EACH ;)

Anyone have $6,400 lying around?

Taillights caught my eye. Rest of the car looks good but like someone mentioned those parking sensors are a turn off.

Saw this car when it was blue and loved it, must have been a hell of a job chopping that thing!

I cannot begin to imagine the work that went into this car. According to the article I read about it, they claim that they modified every single exterior panel on the car in some form or another.
