SEMA 2011: Highlights from Day 1

SEMA 2011 has arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada and here’s your exclusive AutoInjected peek from Day 1….

Interesting looking Scion FR-S concept

Honda shows off some Supercharged Civic Concepts embued with more letters and syllables than is really necessary…

Chip Foose working his, er...magic on a rare 300SL Merecedes Gullwing

Mazda offers us some ‘sporty’ renditions with a 5-car entry featuring an MX-5 roof-option similar to that wonky one fitted to that uber-limited Porsche Boxster Spyder. Ford showed up with ten different Focuses and Fiestas to whet your personal aftermarket tastes with.

Sweey sweet Datsun 510 on the Enkei stand

There was also this hulking 1001 bhp Cadillac CTS-V widebody from tuners D3 along with a Matte Black Batman logo’d CTS-V that (apparently?) belongs to Justin Bieber… ?

Belongs to Justin...? ? Even had a Batman logo'd front end... weird.

Shelby rolled out the original 1962 Cobra prototype amidst the SEMA deluge of huge wings and assorted, standard carshow extras and Dodge presented a Challenger SRT8 ACR to showcase a range of add-on goodies for their modern-day musclecar.

A Dodge Viper without any breathing problems, thank you very much.

Elsewhere, Hyundai dropped a 450 bhp Hyundai SC Genesis Coupe onto the scene and Lexus presented us with the brand new 2013 GS 350 F-Sport

Apparently, the 'just-had-my-wheels-stolen' look is 'in' right now. Chevy Tahoe, in case you were wondering

Meanwhile, Chevrolet produced a Camaro replicating the Hot Wheels original from 1968 along with four other saucy, spec’ed up Camaro models to oggle over and Japanese Porsche 911 tuner, RAUH-Welt, debuted two 911’s built in the good ol’ U.S of A.

That's a lot of muscle in your Charger... nice.

Toyota Camry Daytona 500 Pace Car... uhmm... *yawn*...?

A terrifically horrific not-very-Ferrari 458-anymore scaring the crowds, I imagine.

I love Shooting Brake concepts. This Dodge Magnum treatment (minus the wheels) looks ace methinks.

Good heavens. Sort of looks like a Chevy S-10 rammed into a Chrysler 300C and then exploded, everywhere.

Aww... Cute! Scion iQ from Evasive Motorsports

More to come tomorrow folks…!!

    This post makes me proud of my 3rd gen Camaro and now I’m thinking of modifying it again for the nth time. Btw, here’s an article about engine performance modification that would be useful for 3rd gen Camaro owners like me:
