If this is a meaner Demon, does that make it Satan?
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is one of the meanest road-legal machines in a straight line in the world. Speedkore takes things even further at SEMA, though. A pair of turbochargers boost the engine's output to 1,400 horsepower (1,044 kilowatts) at the flywheel. The body looks stock, but Speedkore actually replaces all of the panels with carbon fiber pieces.
Can you put an elephant under your hood?
Mopar has a big surprise for SEMA. FCA's aftermarket and replacement parts division isn't providing any specifics yet, but the speculation suggests a massive crate engine.
The firm already offers a Hellcat crate engine, so what if whatever Mopar is bringing is even bigger?
A smokey Rebel
Mopar also brings a customized Ram 1500 Rebel concept with the division's accessories and custom paint in the color Rebel Smoke.
Mechanically, this pickup features a two-inch higher ride height and cold-air intake. The 18-inch wheels wear 35-inch Goodyear off-road tires.
The Ram gets low
In addition to the Rebel, Mopar brings the Ram 1500 Big Horn “Low Down” concept to SEMA. This truck has a prototype suspension that lowers the ride height by two inches. A set of 22-inch wheels fill the wheel wells and make the pickup appear even lower to the ground. For a sleeker appearance, a gloss black, three-piece hard tonneau cover adorns the bed.
There’s no missing this Camaro
Chevrolet launches a vibrant new color for the Camaro that it calls 'Shock,' and that’s certainly a fitting name for the bright shade. In addition, the Bowtie highlights the range of accessories for the Camaro like a black wing, cold-air intake, Recaro seats, Brembo brakes, and 1LE suspension parts.
Old Blazer gets a fresh look
For now, Ringbrothers only provides a shadowy teaser image of its Chevrolet K5 Blazer restomod, but the company offers a few more details about the mods for the early SUV. A GM LS3 V8 crate engine is under the hood, and Ringbrothers gives the vehicle a more rugged look.
This Mustang looks like a wilder pony
Ford's Performance Pack 1 kit for the Mustang gets a cooler look with the newly available RTR package. The body kit takes inspiration from Vaughn Gittin Jr's drift car, including a set of staggered 19-inch wheels that measure 9.5 inches wide in front and 10 inches in the rear.
Return of a classic
Classic Recreations is bringing the Ford Mustang Boss 429 back to the road with a line of continuation cars. The one on display at SEMA will be far from stock with an 8.4-liter V8 under the hood, and Centerforce will supply the clutch and flywheel.
So many tuned Mustangs
Ford hands off five Mustangs to tuners and lets them go wild on the pony car. For their vehicles, TJIN Edition, CGS Motorsports, CJ Pony Parts, Galpin Auto Sports, and Bojix Design adds elements to the ‘Stang like a supercharger, wider fenders, and gallons of eye-catching paint.
Time to get dirty
In addition to the five Mustangs, Ford also brings five modified SUVs to SEMA. They include a rugged EcoSport with a bank of lights on the roof, a lowered Edge ST, luxurious Expedition, off-roading Expedition, and stylish Explorer.
A range of Ford Rangers
Like the F Series range, the Blue Oval also has quite a few customized Rangers to display at SEMA. All of the builders focus on creating more hardcore, off-road versions of the new midsized pickup, but they use different themes like rolling through the arctic or a military-inspired design.
The Ford F Series in many flavors
Ford has a variety of F-150 and Super Duty pickups to show off at SEMA. The most powerful of the bunch is a 1,000 horsepower F-150, in addition to several off-road inspired trucks. Another interesting machine is the Super Duty from DeBerti Design that packs a 6.7-liter V8 Power Stroke turbodiesel with an aftermarket twin-turbo kit making 900 horsepower.
Retro Ford GT with a modern engine
Magnaflow and Superformance are teaming up for SEMA. The duo took a GT40 replica, and using a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 instead of the classic naturally aspirated V8, boosted the power significantly. They also painted it in a red, white, and blue livery that recalls the modern Ford GT race car.
A Ford F-150 to hoon
Ken Block debuts his new F-150 Hoonitruck at SEMA ahead of the truck's appearance in the upcoming Gymkhana 10. It features the engine from a Ford GT race car making 914 horsepower.
While the bodywork makes it look like an F-150 from the 1970s, this machine is completely custom.
A race-ready Honda
Honda will also have some race cars in attendance, including a Civic Type R TCR (pictured above) and a rally-ready Honda Pilot.
A Pilot ready to rally
This Honda Pilot is ready to compete in the 1,700-mile Rebelle Rally – an event only for women that covers stages through Nevada and California.
A Ridgeline ready to get dirty
The Honda Ridgeline Overland Project is ready to journey through rugged terrain. A roof rack and bed rack carries all sorts of gear, including a Honda generator. The pickup also has skid plates underneath for greater protection in treacherous conditions.
A Golf R that’s ready to race
The VW tuning specialists at APR take a Golf R and add the firm’s 3+ turbocharger kit that pushes the output to 536 horsepower (400 kilowatts). The firm also adds a widebody kit. Inside, there’s a racing seat, harness, roll cage, and fire extinguisher.
K900 with charisma
Kia's other partnership with Dub at SEMA is a heavily customized K900. It features an Electric Blue body and 24-inch wheels. Like the Stinger, there's an air ride suspension. The tuners install more cobalt-colored accents on the inside.
A different sound from the Veloster Turbo
Hyundai unveils a new batch of performance parts for the Veloster Turbo. The pieces include a Borla cat-back exhaust, Eibach springs and anti-roll bars, B&M sport shifter kit, and a set of aftermarket wheels.
Style and comfort in one package
This Lexus 500 F Sport has a tweaked exterior with an Artisan Spirit body kit and 22-inch Work wheels. Brembo brakes boost stopping ability.
Many hands make light work
Rather than letting one tuner modify this RC 350 F Sport, the company sends the machine cross-country to let shops in Miami, Atlanta, and Austin make tweaks to the coupe. Before the L.A. Auto Show in November a business in Los Angeles will get a crack at it, too.
A Titan to rescue your pet
The Nissan Paws One Titan is a customized pickup for crawling into disaster zones and helping to save pets in danger.
Kick up the music
Nissan loads its little Kicks crossover with an array of speakers and a DJ table at the back. The party starts whenever this little machine stops.
A 370Z perfect for the track on the weekend
Nissan does its best to keep the old 370Z interesting by creating the Project Clubsport 23 for SEMA. Rather than the stock 3.7-liter V6, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 makes 400 horsepower. The road-going model could use an update like this.
A Jetta riding low
Jamie Orr keeps the body of this Jetta S looking fairly subtle in a shade of light gray. However, the KW Clubsport coilovers drop the ride height to make the machine more eye-catching. A set of 20-inch Work Emotion fill the wells.
Orange you glad to see this Jetta?
H&R Springs wraps this Jetta SEL in a vibrant shade of orange with silver accents to break up the bright color. H&R coilovers and a set of 19-inch wheels cut the ride height.
