Think of the worst possible city street traffic jam that you’ve ever fallen victim to and then multiply it by two. Then imagine that the cars blocking your path, moving at a snail’s pace as they all converge on the same few streets, are cars that you actually want to see.
That’s the best way to describe rolling into the 2017 Toyo Tires x Super Street calendar launch event held at Boden Autohaus in Costa Mesa, Calif. Tucked away in a discreet, clone-like business park, Boden has quickly made a name for itself after having their handiwork featured on a long list of high profile vehicles that you’ve no doubt thumbed through while using any form of social media, or while viewing SEMA Show coverage. Due to the majority of their clientele owning European cars and exotics, you’re probably assuming there’d be a number of those vehicles crowding the streets surrounding Boden Autohaus for this event - and you’d be right.
The sharp, raspy note from a Lamborghini or Ferrari joined by the bark of 6- and 8-cylinder BMWs could be heard throughout the day and the line leading into the event remained strong for hours. Here’s a quick look at some of the Euro cars and exotics that made their way to our most successful calendar launch event to date!
It was tough to miss this Merc, with its loud livery, ultra wide arches, and most importantly, those brand new matte gun metal Meister L1’s from Work Wheels.
It wouldn’t be a SoCal event without at least one RWB Porsche making an appearance. This version, dubbed Medusa, features familiar flanks and signature add-ons along with a set of classic TE37s.
You can’t drive more than 3 blocks in Orange County without seeing at least a few modified BMWs, and this particular F80 M3 on BBS wheels is a shining example of how just a little can go a long way.
When your Gallardo 570-4 Superleggera isn’t unique enough, you vinyl wrap it in red-chrome, upgrade your wheels, rear diffuser and wing, and you’ll probably spring for a pricey squash air freshener as well.
Purists might throw their hands up in disgust (we’re looking at you Febbo of european car) due to this Porsche’s ride height, but for our money it doesn’t get much cleaner. Pristine body slathered in a tasteful color sitting on classic BBS wheels!
Nope, it’s not a giant Turtledove Yeezy, but probably costs about the same. This slick black Ferrari 458 was fitted with rear over-fenders, a more aggressive diffuser produced in carbon fiber to match the chassis-mounted rear wing, Air Ride suspension, and Rotiform rollers.
Whether you like a street-friendly ride height or an extreme drop on your E30, the Toyo x SS meet had you covered.
