We brought you Phase 1 of our Maserati Quattroporte Project last month showcasing the exhaust upgrade from Formula Dynamics and Larini. This month, we take you to ADV1 Wheels for the ultimate 3 piece concave wheel upgrade. We wanted to stay within the theme of “Mafia BOSS” and wanted to keep the car’s all black look consistent. The Secret Team therefore decided to reach out to Jordan Swerdloff of ADV1 personally in order to help with our shoe needs. We originally wanted to go with one of ADV1’s Trackspec lineup of wheels which included the famous step lip design coupled with a concave but were told by Jordan that it wasn’t necessarily going to turn out as we expected and that we should re-think our selection…
Jordan’s thoughts were more focused around the fact that a step lip would not accommodate such a nice lip as the offsets of the Quattroporte were not so aggressive and would take away the concave profile that seemed so appealing to begin with.
We sat with Jordan at ADV1 and came up with an alternative that was not so common. We decided to keep the trackspec design of the ADV 8.0 but rather change the lip to a deep concave reverse lip. This would provide a 4″ plus lip on the rear and allow the depth of the concave to be noticed much more than with our original choice. We were informed that we would need to wait for at least 8 weeks as this combo would need to be engineered from scratch and that his personal supervision would be needed.
And so the wait started… 8 weeks later, we were stunned by the most amazing set of wheels we have ever seen to date. So I present you the ADV 8.0 in 22″ with gloss black lips and flat black centers wrapped in Nitto INVO tires.
