Following on from the July 2023 announcement of its technical partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse to develop motorsport wheels for the Lamborghini SC63 race car that will participate in the FIA World Endurance Championship and other series from 2024, Ronal Group has shared further details about the monobloc wheels it is developing for the LMDh prototype.
The Ronal Group has displayed its latest Ronal and Speedline Corse wheels at the Essen Motor Show (3-11 December, Hall 7) including its innovative new Energy Wheel. The new concept wheel uses a generator to produce energy while driving; storing this energy in a battery. An LED lighting system located in the gaps between the wheel spokes is supplied with this energy and can then light up in different colours, thus also functioning as a warning system. The company’s exhibition highlight was presented in a darkened container to maximise the impact of the patent-pending concept.
After a two-year absence due to the pandemic, the Ronal Group is returning to the Essen Motor Show to present both its Ronal and Speedline Corse brands of wheels. In addition new products from these brands, visitors will see the Energy Wheel concept, the exactly meaning of which is being revealed on-show.
Ronal Group is now offering its Ronal R64 rim in an additional finish, Jetblack. This complements the Silver and Jetblack-matt-front diamond cut finishes that have been available since the rim’s launch in 2018. All three finishes are now also available in a new 16-inch version in addition to the existing 17-inch size.
The Ronal Group is launching the R68 multi-spoke wheel to complement its aftermarket range. The new wheel features “20 opposing yet interrelated spokes” which “merge into a single technical and visual unit”. The R68 is available with two different surface finishes – jet-black as well “hyper grey”, which is a new Ronal colour.
The world’s first carbon neutral wheel comes to market at the end of this month. This is the Ronal R70-blue, and the Ronal Group says it manufactures this passenger car rim using 100 per cent renewable energy and primarily from reused aluminium, a material that’s 100 per cent recyclable.
Demand for new cars has dropped as the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, and vehicle manufacturers have adjusted their production accordingly. Their suppliers have too, and alloy wheel manufacturer Ronal Group is the latest company to announce a temporary shutdown of its facilities. Deliveries of products will continue from existing stocks.
