VOSSEN VLE Series - VLE-1
WELCOME TO EXCLUSIVITY
EXPERIENCE THE CREATION OF THE LIMITED EDITION VLE-1 WHEEL
The VLE-1 is the first in a limited-edition series of wheels by Vossen. With only 400 sets produced in two classic finishes, the VLE-1 puts a new twist on Vossen’s already-established lineup of innovative, concave designs.
Individually-numbered center caps demonstrate both the VLE-1’s exclusivity and the precision craftsmanship that you’ve grown to expect from Vossen. A matching fifth center cap is included with each wheel set, as a memento of the exclusive experience that VLE ownership represents.
Direction is the root of the VLE-1’s aggressive feel. Creating a directional wheel, however, is twice as involved, requiring four molds instead of the one or two for traditional designs.
As a result, the VLE-1 spins with the direction of the car, much like a saw blade in action and with equal aggression.
The VLE-1 is a 20-inch directional wheel produced in a variety of bolt patterns and widths. Employing a low pressure casting process, the VLE-1 is both lighter and stronger than its conventional gravity cast counterparts. There are 400 sets crafted in each finish, Gloss Graphite and Silver Metallic.
Each center cap set required unique programming and was CNC machined in our home, Miami, Florida. The caps were then cleaned and underwent three different sanding stages before being hand-brushed and clear-coated. After air-drying a final inspection was done to match the finished quality of each wheel set.
THE VLE-1 KIT
The VLE-1’s limited production sets it apart from most other wheels on the market. Our desire to take it to the next level reigned paramount when it came to creating a custom presentation box.
The VLE-1 box has been refined and tailored to cleanly showcase the individually-numbered center caps—even whilst four are installed. Inside the box’s lid is a Certificate of Authenticity as well as a clever hideaway for this lookbook.
To take it one step further, we’ve assembled a special owner’s kit for each wheel set sold. This kit includes the center cap set and box along with VLE-1-branded items, such as a shirt, snap-back hat, key chain, coffee mug, and cinch bag.
The VLE-1 is a radically new concept for Vossen. Mixing a full-faced, concave design with limited edition, individually numbered sets was not the extent of project though. We selected ten photographers throughout the USA to photograph the VLE-1, giving each full creative freedom to interpret the wheel with their eyes and lenses.
A fusion of two of our most-loved things—wheels and photography.
