LOS ANGELES -- Tucked beneath the largest of the 2013 LA Auto Show's two halls is yet a third hall, the Kentia hall, where you'll find a wide range of aftermarket and specialty vehicles. It's like a tiny SEMA Show.

Here you'll find race cars like this Lamborghini Super Trofeo Gallardo.

And racers of a different sort, like this kart racer.

The Tesla Model S gets the custom treatment.

The devil's in the details; even the aftermarket wheels use Tesla logos on their center caps.

If you prefer to use your trunk for hauling audio equipment, rather than groceries, there's plenty of inspiration to be found.

This Mercedes-Benz makes due with a single subwoofer in a custom enclosure.

And this Dodge Charger fills its trunk with four large drivers.

Lamborghini's heavy-hitting Aventador makes an appearance.

Owners of ultra-exotic supercars don't often get too crazy with their modifications, but custom wheels and a vinyl or foil wrap does wonders.

Custom wheels come in a wide range of colors.

This collection of custom Chevrolet Camaros honors the first responders and passengers who lost their lives on September 11.

The names of the honored are listed on the five vehicles.

This slammed and stretch hot rod hangs out in the Dub Live area.

And this classic draws attention to automotive themed clothing.

There's more than just cars to see, such as this Can-Am ATV.

Motorcycles at a car show? All are welcome in the Kentia hall.

This Ferrari shows off its mid-mounted engine.

Ghost Motorsports has a few custom Rolls-Royce Ghosts on display. How appropriate.

The LA Auto Show takes place in Los Angeles, so of course there are low-riders on bouncing hydraulics.

This low-rider's engine bay is probably cleaner than your car's exterior...

This BMW M3 features a wide stance, flared fenders, and a motorsport-inspired theme.

The Audi A7 chassis looks even more gorgeous slammed over these gold wheels.

Camouflage graphics are more of a truck thing, but this Audi's subtle scheme is surprisingly attractive.

Be careful approaching this gargantuan Ford truck. Some of its bits look sharp.

A collection of Fiat 500s can be found in the 500 Madness display.

I'm a fan of this 500's bright green wheels. They're tacky, yet eye-catching.

Not every vehicle on display is fast or furious. For people who like to take it slow and easy (or those who want to, ahem, cook) there are even RVs to see.

This custom painted van must be seen to be believed.

The Wrangler has been modified to be even more capable when heading off-road.

Most of the cars in the Kentia hall are small enough to fit into a pocket. There are hundreds of toys and models for sale.

After being upgraded with rugged off-road racing equipment, this Toyota was wrapped in what appears to be fragile chrome foil. We didn't say it had to make sense.

The only thing more ridiculous than a widebody Smart ForTwo...

...is a scissor doored Smart ForTwo.

The old wheels must come off before the customs can go on.

I've seen matte cars before, but its rare that you see the headlights coated with the dull finish...at least, not on purpose.

Look through the tinted glass and you'll see this hot rod's engine proudly displayed.

Barbie girls (or boys) would feel right at home behind the wheel of this pink Ford Mustang.

When monsters need unmasking and mysteries solved, the Mystery Machine will get you there in style.

This giant passenger van has a secret inside.

It's cabin has been redone with all of the amenities of a limousine.
