During the early postwar years Borrani made a new disc wheel series called “CABO” (from our founders initials) targeting custom and one-off vehicles. They were offered with 5 slim windows for brake cooling. In 1953 the CABO wheels were updated with 10 “Turbo” style windows in a classic oval shape. The Turbo wheels were offered as: Normal with steel rim, Sport with light alloy rim and Sprint with light alloy rim and centre-lock system.
The first wheel dedicated to Porsche was our Rw2927 designed on 06.05.1953 for the 550 spyder with a 3.50×16” rim and presented throughout the whole international circuit starting with the 1954 Bruxelles show. On the 03th of October 1953 Borrani designed the RW2959 dedicated to 356 equipped with 15” rim, while the traditional Borrani wire wheel transformation kit was offered with a 16”rim. Following the introduction of the ATE disc brakes in 1964, the RW4067 will appear featuring, of course, no need to add the change of drum brakes.
