SEMA always has the coolest stuff.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is not your average car show. Most automotive conventions show off new models from different car companies, but SEMA is more about showing off what spectacular things can be done in the aftermarket world. Many of the cars at SEMA are projects by small companies, but now large automakers are starting to get in on the festivities. Some of the coolest creations at SEMA 2016 were actually built by large car companies like Toyota and GM. Here are some of our favorite creations.
One of our favorite displays was a custom Toyota GT86 built by pro drifter Ryan Tuerck. Tuerck calls his creation the GT4586, because it's powered by the V8 engine from a Ferrari 458. Toyota itself even brought a cool car to SEMA. The Land Speed Cruiser was modified by Toyota to have 2,000 horsepower and hit 220 MPH. There were also plenty of cool restomod cars from Mopar, and the 1,000 hp Vicious Mustang. SEMA is also a great opportunity to see what the aftermarket has in store for recently revealed models. We got to see the world's first tuned Lexus LC500 and a slew of tuned Hyundai models.
It would be impossible for us to go through every awesome car that was revealed at SEMA this year, but you can take a look at some of the cars that we think were the coolest.
