Words by Tim Wong
Liberty Walk R35 GTR at the Air Lift booth
Bare metal 1968 Dodge Challenger with a Nelson Racing Engine 9.4-liter, Hemi V-8 engine producing 2,000 horsepower.
It is also twin turbocharged, twin intercooled, and twin fuel injected.
Over at Vortech was Elvis Skender’s Aimgain FRS

On The Ground Designs and High Octane Hotrods 1973 Ford F100 on a set of B-Forged 595 wheels
5.0L Ford Coyote engine with a Boss intake and Vortech supercharger
One of the most crowded cars at SEMA was the 1966 Chevy Chevelle built by Ringbrothers. It was certainly an impressive vehicle all around and I wished I had the time to sit around waiting for a clear shot, but my SEMA visit was only limited to one day.
Under the bonnet, I found a Whipple supercharged GM dry-sump LS7 Corvette Z06 engine.
The interior has this bad ass looking fighter jet theme.
Liberty Walk Porsche 997 GT3
Rays already had the new Subaru WRX STI on Gram Lights 57Getter wheels
Evasive Motorsports R35 GTR with a mesh of Voltex and Ben Sopra aero on Advan Racing GT wheels.
In the Baer Brakes booth, “MaliciouSS” is a 1964 Chevelle SS by The Roadster Shop who had 6 cars around SEMA this year.
The way the lights in both the front and rear were redesigned was my favorite part of this build.
1969 Ford Talladega GPT Special built by Rad Rides.
Fuel-injected Ford Boss 429 V-8
Even the interior is nothing short of spectacular
Over at HRE’s booth was another Ringbrothers’ car, a 1965 Mustang named “Blizzard”, and sports HRE 560Rs.
I found myself wandering into the ever so crowded Ford booth.
600+ horsepower King Cobra with a supercharged V-8
HOONICORN RTR, the new Hoonigan car for Ken Blocks latest Gymkhana video. 1965 widebody Ford Mustang designed by RTR, Ken Block and Hoonigan, ASD Motorsports full tubular chassis, ASD Motorsports custom roll-cage, door bars and front/rear suspension mounts, RTR carbon fiber body panels.
410-cubic-inch Roush Yates V8 putting out about 845 horsepower
6-speed Sadev SC90-24 all-wheel drive transmission with a hydraulic handbrake system
18-inch fifteen52 three-piece R40
GReddy / Rocket Bunny Lexus RCF at the Lexus booth. I personally don’t care for the RCF, but that’s because I don’t really lke Lexus cars to begin with. The kit does look great on the RCF because it flows well with the aggressive bodylines of the car even if the color matching on the kit wasn’t that great.
The Lexus RCF GT3 Concept. Lexus always has this ridiculous cars like last years Deviant Art IS F Sport out on display that make very little sense because we all know these cars will never been made nor we want them to be.
H&R BMW Z4
Ending Part Four with the Always Evolving R35 GTR.
