The Five Absolute Worst Cars at SEMA 2012
SEMA's annual show is quite an interesting event. It's a treasure trove of all things automotive and custom. We have a ton of respect for all of the cool and amazingly crafted OEM cars, as well as the more creative tuner cars that strutted their stuff at this year's show. However, every SEMA show has it's own horrific car customizations. Check out some of the most appalling rides from this year's show. Sky Blue Infiniti G:
This color, or variations of it, was popular at SEMA this year. This is the worst execution of all. Matching blue wheels, slammed suspension, ricer body kit and some type of flame paint on the front. All of it...hideous.
The Hello Kitty VW Micro Bus:
This is not actually a VW Micro Bus, and it has nothing to do with Hello Kitty. We're pretty sure the execs from Volkswagen would come down and personally shut down the creation of something so ugly, and pink, if it was actually based on a VW Micro Bus. It's a converted Suzuki Changhe, and is among the many reasons why Suzuki is filing for bankruptcy.
VIP Lexus LS:
When we think of Lexus, we think of subtle, understated luxury. Some tuner took that ideal and wiped his sweaty ass with it and created this orange creamsicle Lexus LS. It's about as subtle as a grenade to the face.
Velvet Audi R8:
There are some very mixed opinions about this particular car. But seriously what is the point of putting velvet on a supercar? Does it improve aerodynamics? Or aids in cooling? Or helps to produce horsepower? It definitely isn't good looking maybe it's just difficult to apply so that makes it cool? The wheels also suck, they look like the ninja throwing stars I made in first-grade arts and crafts.
Chrysler meets GM in the death of American car customization. This car four-wheeled monstrosity takes the front of a Chevrolet Camaro, and mounts it on a Chrysler 300C. Lamborghini doors, candy red and gold flake paint with gaudy rims to match. We just feel bad that someone actually spent time building this thing.
