2012 SEMA Show – Top 10 Cars
The SEMA show is always a great occasion to showcase the best automobiles in the industry and you can bet that the top manufacturers and enthusiasts did not miss the 2012 installment by any means.
The 2012 SEMA Show was held on November 2, 2012 in Las Vegas and it featured an exhibition of some of the best cars available in the market today. The show is particularly known for showing off some of the most extravagant sports cars. Here is a brief look at the 2012 SEMA show top 10 cars.
1. Scion FR-S by Vortech
One of the most prominent of the 2012 SEMA Show top cars was the Scion FR-S by Vortech. Compact and dynamic, the 2013 Scion FR-S from Vortech delivers high performance with powerful features such as the AD Body Kit, KW suspension, MagnaFlow Exhaust and Vortech supercharger. The Scion FR-S won the SEMA 2012 award for the Hottest Sport Compact and Vortech was by far the most impressive of its several specimens in the show.
2. Scion FR-S by Daniel Song
Scion-FR by Daniel Song was one of the most noticeable and creative design among the large Award winning Scion FR-S variety in the exhibition thanks to its sinister look that made it something right out of a superhero comic movie. The look was achieved by making the car wear a carbon fiber wrap with a combination of a huge rear wing and a sizeable front splitter. The dark look was completed by blacked out headlights, and with the killer performance of the Scion FR-S engine, it is a great way to intimidate your rivals.
3. Mach 40 by Eckert’s Rod and Custom
Mach 40 is the modern version of the 1969 Mustang Mach 1 line but still resonates the classy retro design in the model. The model that stole the spotlight at the SEMA show was engineered by Eckert’s Rod and Custom from Oregon that completely transformed its functionality while preserving its classic heritage that looks a bit like the GT40. However, the real winner for the Mach 40 is its high performance and adjustable 600 to 850 hp engine.
4. Hurst Edition Trans Am
One of the highlights of the improvisation models in the SEMA Show 2012 was the Hurst Edition Trans Am. Work of the Trans Am Depot, the magnificent vehicle is converted from a Chevrolet Camaro SS and can be powered by the Corvette LS7 V8 engine. The Trans Am is given a makeover with retro wheels, revamped exhaust and front and rear fascia with a presence. Also, if you are a huge Smokey and the Bandit fan, maybe install an optional T-top on it and create a massive impression.
5. Giovanna Ferrari FF
If it is an auto sports car exhibition, it’s always hard to ignore the glamorous Ferrari. The 2012 SEMA Show offered the fair share to the fans of the Italian brand in the Giovanna Ferrari FF variant. The Giovanna Ferrari FF is an elegant and illustrious model which is as sound functionally with its 660 HP V12 engine as it is breathtaking aesthetically. However, it is clear that there Is more emphasis on style in the FF model as some may not find its oversized wheels too charming, apart from the heavy glass-roof in the original version.
6. Dodge Challenger SRT 8 Project Ultraviolet
The Dodge Challenger SRT 8 Project Ultraviolet was yet another improvisation that made many stop in their tracks in the exhibition. The Project Ultraviolet is the brainchild of the Jeff Dunham and Mopar collaboration and it made a great effect with its glossy metallic purple paired with a matte black roof. Despite the makeover, you can still expect the powerful SRT8 features such as the 426 Hemi V-8 Crate engine.
7. Volkswagen Vortex Super Beetle
Who doesn’t love Beetle and it would simply be unfair leaving it out of the 2012 SEMA top cars list. The Vortex Super Beetle Project is being dubbed as the “ultimate” beetle and that is somewhat evident by its sports car-like design. The Super Beetle features 500 hp engine and the signature fifteen52 wheels tailored for motor sports. The Super Beetle has won the Gran Turismo Best European Import SEMA 2012 Award and certainly is one design that would be mouthwatering for the Beetle enthusiasts.
8. Galpin Auto Sports 1966 Ford Off-Road Bronco
The Galpin Auto Sports 1966 Ford Off-Road Bronco was one of the most attractive presentations of the exhibition for a number of reasons. First of all, it was painted in an unusual and outrageous bur rather cool looking baby blue-orange combination, but the vehicle was a solid performer all-round in its own right. The Off-Road Bronco features a 6.2 liter V-8 540 hp engine and a fabulously revamped interior. The most important functional feature of the truck is its suspension to take on the rough surfaces.
9. Toyota Pre-Runner Tundra 2013
The Toyota Pre-Runner Tundra 2013 design by Alexis DeJoria is a vibrant truck in the show that captured a lot of attention. Painted for good visibility in the dark, the Pre-Runner Tundra is a performing vehicle by virtue of its TRD-supercharged 5.7 liter V8 engine and 20” front and 24” rear wheel travel. You would feel safe while riding the rough waves of wild terrain with this four wheeler thanks to its seven point harness, Fox racing suspension system, and a leather wrapped roll cage.
10. 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition
Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels is a design that pretty much everyone is familiar with, whether they realize it or not. What is new about the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition is the revamped design paired with its remarkable performance capability.
