Toyo Tires will reveal over 35 world-first vehicles.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, otherwise known as the SEMA Show, is Mecca for modification enthusiasts. Every year, there's something special, and as new cars are revealed, aftermarket tuning companies scramble throughout the year to get their all-new builds ready for the show.
Now that the world is slowly returning to some semblance of normalcy, the SEMA Show is gearing up for a massive event to make up for the cancellation of last year's extravaganza. Among the vendors putting up displays will be Toyo Tires, and it's going to make a massive splash, promising that it will "unveil over 35 world-debut vehicles and two crowd-stopping art installations" as part of the Toyo Tires Treadpass display.
"Toyo Tires is excited to rejoin SEMA 2021 in person and bring back our celebration of creativity and vehicle execution at Treadpass," says Toyo Tire president and CEO John Thomas. "SEMA allows us to highlight and partner with some of the best builders in the industry. They choose Toyo Tires knowing the right tires elevate the look, feel, and performance of their vehicle."
In front of the South Hall, black and white art from Joshua Vides will be on display in the form of the artist's own E30 BMW M3. Next to this display will be a reveal from Ken Block and Brian Scotto, showing all-new Audi builds with art by Ricardo Gonzalez. Block will be presenting an Audi Sport Quattro tribute built by LCE in Germany while Scotto will unveil an Audi Coupe Quattro, a project he has been working on since he bought it in 2004.
As for the world debuts we can look forward to, Toyo Tires is reserving some of the mystery so that showgoers are properly wowed when they see the vehicles for the first time. Nevertheless, we do get a bit of a teaser with the news that we'll see a 1994 FD3S Mazda RX-7 producing 1,000 horsepower on the wheels, a 1972 Chevrolet Blazer K5 with chopped doors, and a 1982 DeLorean DMC-12.
There will also be modified versions of the 2021 Chevy Silverado, a Lexus LC 500 Convertible, and a naturally aspirated RB28-powered 1986 Nissan 300ZX. If you're keen on seeing these up close, the show takes place in Las Vegas from November 2-5.
