Five insane rides from the 2014 SEMA Show – and a honorable mention image

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is well known for its… show. It’s certainly not the only one, but it’s definitely the largest event – traditionally held during the first week of November.

During that period, the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada – which also hosts in conjunction the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week, hosts the largest, maddest, most incredible gathering of customized vehicles. While the event should be one that is not open to the general public, its hype has gone through the roof over the years and all the US automakers strive to make their presence felt, seen, touched, heard there. From the multitude of rides that took our eyes we selected just five, plus an honorable mention – to give you a glimpse of what’s going on in the city of fortune.

Because there’s no winner, looser or a car to top all others, we chose to forgo our usual number system and give them all in the gallery. We should note that any viewer offended by the quirky, out-of-this-world rides that we present should just hold a little tight and wait for the month’s end. That’s when the US automotive Mecca goes to Los Angeles for the Auto Show that would give you more mundane, off the production lines new models and concepts. For our small list, we direct your attention towards a fun, lowriding Ram truck that sits in stark contrast to the classy General Motors Futureliner that serves as a timely reminder that old cars have their own huge cool factor. Or you could prepare your cash to buy the club racer version of the iconic Miata sports car when it’s released later on in 2015. Toyota has used a bland looking Camry to shock each and everyone – it’s the he ultimate sleeper dragster with a hidden V8 engine. Ford – which has rich novelties for the year, didn’t miss the SEMA experience and bewildered us with some over the top modified F-Series trucks – like the one that houses a dune buggy on its truck bed. And the Mustang, in a King Cobra iteration, will make your eyes pop and heart bleed to the sound of the 600 horsepower engine.
