Jay Leno Drives A Supervillain Jeep With 50-Inch Tires And No Lift

You might recognize the Fab Fours Legend from SEMA a few months ago. Now that Leno's had a chance to take it out on the road we pretty much have to believe it is indeed real... though part of me's still pretty sure this is an R/C car or CGI animation. » 3/26/15 4:42pm Thursday 4:42pm

Max Prince can't un-see what he saw at SEMA

At 8:30am, I fall in with the masses being herded into Las Vegas Convention Center for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. More than 135,000 people will pass through these limo-tinted doors before Saturday, and I'm told there's no way any one meager man can see everything that's inside. It's the… » 11/14/14 4:05pm 11/14/14 4:05pm

Watch SEMA Bros Freak Out As A Bro-Jeep Smashes A Tuned Ferrari 458

Japanese-American tuner Liberty Walk was proudly displaying their wide-body Ferrari 458 at some sort of SEMA event overnight when the driver of a tuned Jeep proudly displayed what Jeeps are best at: Crashing into stuff. Everyone then freaked out. » 11/08/14 8:17am 11/08/14 8:17am

2014 Scion Tuner Challenge update.

It has been a crazy week at SEMA for me this year with various meetings and launches of various cars, but one of the main highlights was Speedhunters 'Maximum Attack' Scion FR-S winning the 2014 Scion Tuner Challenge earlier this week. » 11/07/14 10:25am 11/07/14 10:25am

This 980 Horsepower '66 Chevelle Has A Fighter Jet Cockpit

The 2014 SEMA show was a very good one for American muscle, with cars like the Ford Mustang King Cobra and the revival of the famous Yenko Camaro. But the SEMA Muscle Crown (Is that a thing? It should be a thing) goes to a car called "Recoil." It's a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle with 980 horsepower and an interior that's… » 11/06/14 3:21pm 11/06/14 3:21pm

The Yenko Camaro Is Back For 2015 And It Has 700 Horsepower

If you're a fan of old-school General Motors muscle, you know about a dealership in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania called Yenko Chevrolet. While Yenko isn't around anymore, their name lives on with this 700 horsepower 2015 Chevrolet Camaro tuner special. » 11/06/14 10:28am 11/06/14 10:28am

The First Sinkhole Corvette Was Restored For SEMA And Looks Perfect

The 2009 Corvette ZR1 was the first car recovered from the massive 30-foot-deep sinkhole at the Corvette Museum and also the first car restored for SEMA. » 11/06/14 10:00am 11/06/14 10:00am

These Delicious Kia Concepts Serve You Ice Cream And Beer

Kia is now the best car company in the world. Why do I say this? Because their concept cars from the SEMA show are equipped to feed you the two most important food groups, beer and ice cream. Hooray for both of those things! » 11/05/14 4:47pm 11/05/14 4:47pm

How The 2015 Ford Mustang King Cobra Runs A 10.97 Second Quarter Mile

No, the 2015 Ford Mustang King Cobra unveiled at the SEMA show is not a Hellcat-fighter. Not really, because it's not a production car the way the Hellcat is. But if you equip your Mustang with all these Ford Racing parts, you'll be there. » 11/05/14 1:35pm 11/05/14 1:35pm

How To Ruin A Corvette Stingray, By SEMA And The KISS Frontman

I think the show cars from SEMA only really work when they go all-in. The ridiculous shaggin' wagon and sword-filled concepts from Scion? You're doing it right! The ultra-conservative paint jobs on the Chevrolet cars? You're doing it wrong! » 11/04/14 9:45pm 11/04/14 9:45pm

Kia Gives The K900 What It Has Always Needed: Rear-Mounted Turbos

The Kia K900 has been a free ice cream cone on the coldest day of winter kind of car. What does this expensive robot not-BMW need to fix its lackluster sales? Not rear turbos! » 11/04/14 5:17pm 11/04/14 5:17pm

A Honda Fit With A Grom In The Back Is Something We Need Yesterday

The NSX and S2000 are great and all, but my all-time favorite Honda may just be the Honda City Turbo, because that was a turbocharged hot hatch with a freaking scooter in the back. Now Honda has revived the idea with a 2015 Fit and a the wonderful Grom mini-cycle, and I want them to shut up and take my money. » 11/04/14 4:42pm 11/04/14 4:42pm

The Mustang King Cobra Is Back To Party Like It's 1978

The greatest Mustang ever made was the Mustang II King Cobra of the late 1970s. It is known. Now, this glorious machine appears to be making a comeback in the form of a mysterious SEMA concept. Long live the King Cobra! (Update: Here it is!) » 11/04/14 3:05pm 11/04/14 3:05pm

Jimmie Johnson's '71 Corvette Has A New Stingray V8 And It's So Badass

Just when I think General Motors' SEMA offerings will be total duds this year, they go and totally redeem themselves with a very badass 1971 Corvette powered by a brand new LT1 crate motor from a modern Corvette Stingray. It's for Jimmie Johnson, a man who knows more than a little bit about speed. » 11/04/14 2:55pm 11/04/14 2:55pm

This Boring Camry Is An 850 HP Sleeper That'll Melt Your Eyeballs Off


The Toyota Camry is the gold standard of beige. Apparently knowing that full well, Toyota saw fit to take to SEMA the ultimate Sleeper Camry. No, seriously. That's what they're calling it – the Toyota Sleeper Camry. And it's got an 850 horsepower, supercharged, nitrous-injected V8 that will make you scream for momma. » 11/04/14 2:36pm 11/04/14 2:36pm

Chevy Avalanche-Style 2015 Chevy Silverado Looks Surprisingly Good

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado High Desert concept rocks a return to the cladding we last saw on the mega-macho Chevy Avalanche. I dare say; the look works with the new body style. Then again, what wouldn't look good in this color. » 11/04/14 1:35pm 11/04/14 1:35pm

This Is The First 2016 Mazda Miata Race Car

The 2016 Mazda Miata is something that we have been rather excited about for quite a while now. And since the Miata is known as the race car of the people, it was only a matter of time before a new MX-5 Cup Car broke cover. Well, here it is. » 11/04/14 1:02pm 11/04/14 1:02pm

GM Knows The 2015 Chevy Colorado Looks Cooler Without That Chin Spoiler

Here's the second "modified" 2015 Chevy Colorado as presented by GM. It's just like the first one; establishing that a roll bar, bikes, stickers, and removing the front spoiler rounds out Chevy's "how to quickly and cheaply make a Colorado look cool" list. If the spoiler must stay, can we at least get a quick-release? » 11/03/14 1:41pm 11/03/14 1:41pm

Designing a Scion FR-S for the Scion Tuner Challenge

I have been fortunate to work with Speedhunters and car builder Keith Charvonia on their entry in the 2014 Scion Tuner Challenge, which will be showcased at the SEMA show in November. » 10/30/14 10:37pm 10/30/14 10:37pm

This Sick Slayer-Themed Scion tC Is Easily The Metalest Scion Ever

The Scionslaught at SEMA continues! SEMA is supposed to be ridiculous and fun, so it's good to see Scion going all out with their concepts. The louvered FR-S is good, but it's not as metal as this badass Slayer-themed tC. Few things are as metal as this. » 10/30/14 6:33pm 10/30/14 6:33pm
