So what is it that you do when you have a Lamborghini LP670-4 SuperVeloce and you start to get bored? You get it wrapped full matte purple and outfit it with a set of ADV.1 Deep Concave ADv05 wheels. So what do you do once you’re bored with that? Rewrap the entire exotic in a chrome purple finish, that’s what.
This LP670-4 SuperVeloce is sporting what might be perhaps the next trend or style to hit the aftermarket: colored chrome foil wraps. We’ve seen chrome and shiny gold wraps before, but purple is definitely new to us and we have to agree that it looks amazingly nice on this LP670-4.

Ferrari‘s F430 and now F458 Italia has become synonymous with the Italian manufacturer’s moniker; while models such as the California go on living their lives less popular in the public light. Sporting a front-engine 4.3L V8 with 454-hp, many critiqued the California as a girl’s Ferrari, rather than a man’s Ferrari. But the folks over at ADV.1 Wheels don’t think the California is a ‘chick’s car’ and set out to prove it.
Teaming up with Wheels Boutique, the Florida-based wheel manufacturer took a classy silver California and outfitted it with some suspension modifications and a set of their brilliant wheels, making the California a manly exotic supercar. Not many words are needed to express just how beautiful this project is, but it’s worth mentioning how simple and subtle modifications can go a long way in completing the look of a car. Even one as exotic as Ferrari’s California.

Now this is how you build a luxury sports coupe. You take what Mercedes-Benz has already done oh-so-well with their AMG Black Series vehicles – this one being a CLK63 – play on the black theme some more by making the entire car matte black, outfit it with a perfectly measured set of ADV1 wheels and have those wide fenders sit properly on the rubber.
There’s no official list of modifications on the project, but it does sport a set of 19-inch brushed gunmetal ADV7 wheels, staggered of course. The CLK63 AMG Black Series also snugly fits a pair of 275 wide rubber from Michelin in the front while the rear sports a very nice pair of 305 Pilot Sport PS2 tires.
It looks like Tunerworks is based out of Canada and specialize in tuning high-end European sports coupes, sedans and exotics with a little bit of import and domestic flavor sprinkled in. Kudos to them for doing this CLK63 AMG Black Series right.
