The new Summa, which, like the Dragoon, recently celebrated its world premiere in front of thousands of online viewers as part of a tuning live streaming event that has been planned for a long time, only weighs a sensational 7.48 kilograms in its entry size 7.5×17 inches! The second 8.0×17 inch dimension announced for the market launch in April weighs only marginally more.
This extreme weight optimization, from which reduced unsprung and rotating masses and thus significantly improved driving dynamics and performance result, already suggests where the Barracuda Summa will be found particularly frequently: on the track. Because the target group of the dedicated motorsport wheel are amateur racing drivers as well as tourist drivers, drifters and quarter-mile pilots.
Despite this racing focus, the Barracuda Summa of course comes with approvals for uncomplicated and proper entry in the vehicle documents of the track tools.
The design of the ten-spoke wheel Summa is kept comparatively reduced in accordance with its functional character. The following clearly applies here: form follows function. The range of the announced finishes reaches from motorsport-typical Racing White and Matt Bronze to dark Matt Black PureSports.
And even if a Barracuda Summa is damaged in tough track use despite all the stability promised by the flow forming process, that does not mean a financial disaster: The motorsport rim costs inexpensive € 239 (7.5×17 inches) or 249 euros (8.0×17 inches). If you want to be supplied with the new Barracuda Summa in time for the new racing season, you should place your order soon: pre-orders are now being accepted.
