Located in the lower level of South Hall, Kentia Hall includes various automotive companies, specialty vehicles, customized rides and enhancements for any vehicle. No other car show in North America features specialty vehicle and accessory exhibitors like the Los Angeles Show, making it the place to see and experience what's around the curve in custom design, accessories and performance.

Some of this year's highlights include:

Customization:   Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) demonstrates the outer limits of customization with an awe-inspiring array of recent projects. This year, 12 vehicles will be featured at the Show, ranging from high-octane power statements to reviving 60's-era classics with everything from custom wheels to Cobra seats. Many of the GAS customs slated for display have never been seen by the public, including the 2012 Ford F-150 Raptor boasting a 600 hp powerplant and 18" matte black wheels; 2012 Custom Shelby GT500 with a heart-stopping 750 hp Ford Racing/Shelby Supercharger; and 2013 Ford Focus ST equipped with Brembo performance brakes and custom leather seats.

Madness Autoworks (formerly Smart Madness), masters of the micro-car, return this year featuring the largest inventory of Smart and Fiat parts and accessories. Its creative approach to personalization and customized installations transforms stock vehicles into one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

For over 30 years Bespoke Coachworks has been customizing some of the world's top marques, including nameplates such as Bentley, Ferrari and Mercedes. Its expertise extends from integrating advanced audio and video solutions to designing everything from custom in-vehicle doggie beds to full vehicle conversions, such as their Mercedes-Benz Sprinter conversion.

Electronics and Technology:  The experts from Al & Ed's Autosound will showcase the latest trends in mobile technology – from hands free communication and iPad integration, to the most advanced platforms ranging from signal processors to navigation systems.

Tuners and Performance:  High-end tuners and performance experts such as Specialty Car Craft and RTW Motoring will be showcasing high-end modifications on luxury cars such as Porsche and Maserati. These companies represent the ultimate in vehicle personalization with services ranging from custom matte paint jobs to installing aftermarket body kits.

Street legal and track worthy, the low center of gravity, sinuous handling and predatory design of Compagno Motors three-wheeled side-by-side vehicles promise the "Same Road. Different Journey." The tuned trikes count celebrities and aficionados such as Jay Leno as fans.

Radio Controlled: Traxxas designs a popular, feel-of-real range of radio controlled cars and boats powered by both nitro and electricity. The model range is broad and designed for everyone from the novice to hard-core enthusiast and includes everything from race trucks and monster trucks to a 1/8 scale NHRA Funny Car.
