SEMA 2014: Part Three
Words by Tim Wong
The sheer number of cars and variety among them is a sight to behold at SEMA. From the restomod American classics to the modified imports, the show is something you can spend endless days going through the show and still not see everything. Inside and outside, the Las Vegas convention center is littered with cars everywhere.
Belladonna Ford GT
Magnus Walker’s 78 SCHR
Another Bulletproof Automotive R35 with a fusion of Rocket Bunny and Overtake body parts.
Bulletproof Automotive Varis Kamikaze-R
Another Sarto Racing Mercedes CLK
Vollkommen Design’s widebody Subaru WRX STI
Elvis Skender’s Aimgain LS400 on Work Meister M1. After watching Elvis build both his Aimgain LS400 and then his Aimgain FRS over the course of several months online, it was nice to see them in person.
Bloodtype Racing Hyundai Genesis coupe with a Kei Miura-designed aero kit
Honda had a number of new Fits modified by various shops to promote the 2015 Honda Fit. The display showed a wide range of modifications when it came to putting together a custom Fit.
MAD Industries Fit on Rotiform IND-t wheels with a matching Honda Grom
Bisimoto’s Turbo Fit putting out 480 HP
Kontrabrands A.M.L. Fit on SSR Professor SP1
Kenny Vinces Turbo Fit
Spoon Sports Super Taikyu Fit on Rays Volk Racing CE28 Club Racer Wheels
Inside you can see the Spoon Sports Carbon Bucket Seats, Spoon Sports Super Taikyu Roll Cage, and even the Spoon Sports USA One-Off Carbon Door Panels.
The Vibrant S2000 that was supposed to compete in Formula Drift last year. I’m not sure if it actually ever made it as it was still under construction after the season had already started.
Akrapovic always out with a full on race car at their booth
Toyota had a couple interesting cars like this Camry “Sleeper” drag car. It’s really more of a funny car at this point than a sleeper.
The FT-1 concept that’s been going around, but this was the first time I actually got a chance to see it in person.
It’s definitely a good looking car, but I doubt it was stay this way when it comes to production. I remember what happened to the FRS concept.
BBI Autosport always impresses when it comes to Porsche 911s.
This 1985 Carrera was amazing. The 1976 930 Turbo deck lid, RUF CTR Yellowbird front bumper, and fifteen52 x Magnus Walker ’52 Outlaw’ wheel are just some of the details that make this a prime example of a restomod 911.
Nearby Magnus Walker had a couple of his Porsches at the Mobil 1 booth. One finished and one in progress.
All these little details that make a Porsche 911 unique to Magnus Walker.
Leaving off part three with these beautiful 911s. Part Four coming up soon.
