10. Hot Wheels Ford Transit Connect
Yet another SEMA Show gone by, yet another million plus square feet of sheer custom car insanity.
In a town where weird is normal, the masses of modified cars seem at home. Turbochargers the size of volleyballs are often wedged into Honda Civic engine bays and nobody bats an eye at airbrushed artwork of wolves and near-nude women. Despite the propensity for depravity that comes with a no-last-call town, SEMA is never anything short of a legendary gathering. With that in mind, here are the top 10 cars of this year’s show, hotly debated by the AutoGuide.com staff.
Blue, orange and covered in Hot Wheels graphics, the custom Ford Transit Connect was one of two vehicles unveiled by the brand in Las Vegas this week. It featured a gutted interior with two 18-inch tablets and a 55-inch TV screen. There are two Recaro sport seats in the front and a set of twin fins mounted above the rear doors.
Last year, Chevrolet unveiled a production version of its Hot Wheels Camaro, citing positive feedback from the previously shown concept. Don’t hold your breath on Ford following suit.
