LONG CHAMP XRX..
Another reasonably rare, vintage SSR. I don't think I've ever seen pics of these on a car, despite having come across a couple sets now.
27 years old this year, and never seen a tyre..
Sometimes things are just hard to photograph, but damn are these just-about stunning in person...
..interesting to see the different formatting of the name.. That '-' is absent when written everywhere else.. box, cap, paperwork, etc...
Not often I get a wheel with the face and barrel made in the same month either btw.. it seems that sometimes the barrel can follow by up to a year!
As I said, its so hard to do these justice - they're bloody stunners in person. The combination of paint and polish.. the chrome and gold bolts sitting on the machined edge of the face.. Just nice details.
