Whether you like it or not, the aftermarket wheel industry is making great strides these days. Unfortunately, in most cases, it’s not recognized by the general public overall. That is, if we dig deeper beyond how cool the wheels look like. To many, the education of the public perception, owners, dealers and others is the key ingredient in making the aftemarket wheel industry get accepted by pundits and conservative crowds in the automotive world then.
For many, ADV.1 Wheels have been at the fore front front of the wheel industry in the last few years. Yes, they’ve had their share of controversy – like everybody else. But, for the most part, their expertise and engineering prowess is combined with marketing efforts seldom seen in the automotive industry. This yields some rather exciting builds.
This Lamborghini Huracan LP-610-4 is equipped with some of ADV.1’s latest wheel solutions in both design and craftsmanship, respectively. The company recently made a move to their in-house production & design center, creating wheels that certainly have all the advancements available. This set of ADV5 MV.2 CS wheels is the perfect example of their newly introduced company policy in every single area.
The MV.2 wheels are actually a two-piece setup that yields some interesting things. First, they offer customers with a wider range of possible sizes/widths. Second, they can maintain a monoblock outlook – even with a two-piece wheel. Include titanium hardware, pocket material removal and excellent engineering work that yields a lightweight wheel setup, then you have a perfect aftermarket wheel setup for a vehicle like this.

With the Lamborghini Aventador, making it a bit more unique is quite simple: add wheels. This Aventador went through the exactly same treatment. The HRE Wheels chosen are a perfect aftermarket addition for this vehicle. Part of the HRE S series wheels, they are a viable solution that fits perfectly on supercars like this.
The Aventador LP 700-4 represents a whole new level of performance, sets new benchmarks in the super sports car segment, and provides a glimpse into the future. It’s a car that’s already achieved legendary status.
Series S2 combines HRE Wheels’ technical expertise with an uncompromised attention to detail creating the ultimate in style and performance. The design of the S2 include a unique twisted spoke geometry and complex 360 degree surfacing inspired by the latest supercars like the Lamborghini Aventador SV and the Ferrari 488 GTB. This makes the HRE S200 a perfect addition to a vehicle like the Aventador for sure.
This build is done by Driving Emotions Motorcars with help from Wwheels Boutique. The wheels are a perfect fit, thanks to their custom made configuration. The finish looks great when combined with the vehicle like this, as you can clearly check out in the wallpaper sized gallery, we’ve added right below.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700–4 uses Lamborghini’s new 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) 6.5 litre V12 engine weighing 235 kg. Known internally as the L539, the new engine is Lamborghini’s fourth in-house engine and second V12. It is the first all-new V12 since the 3.5 litre powerplant found in the 350GT. For many, the sound and depth of that V12 engine is simply impressive. It gives the fans of naturally aspirated engines something to rejoice about.
This Aventador comes equipped with ADV.1 Wheels and a few carbon fiber touches. Unlike some builds we’ve seen earlier, this one looks clean and the additions make the supercar in question look even more ridiculous.
With the addition of carbon fiber parts, the Aventador looks more aggressive and performance oriented. The Lamborghini Aventador seen here is equipped with a lightweight carbon fiber front spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, completed with an impressive carbon fiber active rear wing. The addition of the rear wing perfects the looks nicely. It also gives additional downforce, a feature the owner of this supercar will definitely appreciate.
The ADV.1 Wheels installed are the custom made design that the wheel company built for Davenport Motorspots and thus created something rather interesting overall. The wheels are sized 21×10 and 21×13 front and rear respectively, giving the Aventador quite an impressive overall visual upgrade there. Full photoshoot of this build is available in the media gallery below, created by the highly talented William Stern. Check it out!

The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the most gorgeous looking supercars you can see on the roads today. It marked the return of the aerodynamically sound supercars that cater to both performance and aesthetics, giving way to efficiency, performance and design that is both modern and stylish. The 458 however, has been out there for a while. It certainly needs a bit of a touch up – to make it as gorgeous as it was – when it was released.
The Ferrari 458 Italia is a gorgeous machine and a capable performance vehicle. The 458 Italia features a V8 engine of the “Ferrari/Maserati” F136 engine family, producing 570 PS (419 kW; 562 hp) at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 540 N·m (398 lb·ft) at 6,000 rpm with 80% torque available at 3,250 rpm. The engine features direct fuel injection, which is a first for Ferrari mid-engine road cars.
Performance is equally impressive and the Ferrari’s official 0–100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is 2.9-3.0 seconds, while top speed is 325 km/h (202 mph). Plenty of power, all resulting in some remarkable speed and driving dynamics. This red Ferrari 458 Italia received a set of aftermarket wheels – designed to make it look even better and also, to allow for less unsprung weight – due to the wheels’ lightweight and efficient configuration seen here.
The wheels come courtesy of HRE Performance Wheels and they fit the Ferrari 458 Italia perfectly. You can check out how they look on this beauty, all in the detailed media gallery added right below.
