If you just so happened to find yourself in Torrance, Calif., on July 16th, there's a good chance you ran across a supercar or two making their way to one of the countless SoCal cookie-cutter business parks. Their destination, however, at West 190th St. where you'll find World Motorsports, is anything but cookie cutter.
Open the shop's bay door and you're greeted by yet another set of doors that house World's new Wind Tunnel 4WD dyno, which relies on four massive fans and a linked rolling road system to mimic real world driving conditions. This means that they can simulate wind speed over the vehicle as well as avoid the common issues that plague newer car tuning sessions, like ABS and traction control interference.
The open house event brought out a number of high-end vehicles, and by the time we arrived around 9 a.m. the business park lot was full and the dyno side of World Motorsports was packed as well. A handful of vendors that included Mackin Industries and their slew of beautiful Volk Racing and Advan wheel options, as well as Continental Tire, along with a few others, were on hand to field questions from attendees.
Anytime you have multiple Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and McLarens lined up and on display, not to mention the howl of multiple Porsches on your state-of-the-art dyno, you can probably consider your event a smash hit. World Motorsports definitely delivered and if they ever throw anything like this again, rest assured we'd be in attendance to support it. Take a look at what you missed with our Facebook Live Video

There were a number of cars that most people would undoubtedly describe as "dream cars" at this event, and we enjoyed them all. However, one of the cars that really stood out to us was this Supreme Power 991 GT3 in Fashion Grey perched on BBS Motorsport E07 wheels.
Somewhat of an Internet legend at this point, it was nice to finally see the World Motorsports/Rado-prepped AMG SLS in person. Subtle in appearance, the car makes awe-inspiring power and we're dying to get into the driver's seat in the near future.
We know, we know, you own a Huracan and that measly 600hp just isn't cutting it anymore. Chin up, little guy, VF Engineering's VF800 Roots-type supercharger will grant you another two hundred ponies for just a tad under 33K. Look at me ... ya' welcome.
Increasing the visual impact while also increasing airflow to this M6 mill is Dinan's carbon fiber intake kit.
A deep dive into a Lotus build can go one of two ways - incredibly good or incredibly bad. We're going with the first avenue on this widebody Exige that, as a result of DTM Autobody's hard work, sports a one-off wide body rear end. Atop that larger-than-average hiney sits an APR GTC2K wing while underneath you'll find a Larini Club Sport exhaust set up.
