Chrome Wheeled V8 Esprit'

Recommended Posts

It caught my eye that is seems quite common for American V8 Esprit' to be fitted with chrome plated wheels.

I may be imagining things, but it's also mostly the Saturn wheels.

Why? Was it an importers idea of a good thing?

Discuss :D

Just noticed this one says "factory OEM chrome wheels"

Lotus didn't do this officially at the factory, surely this was something that was done stateside? Can't see Lotus Chroming wheels :D
