Ahead of the 2012 SEMA Show, Scion held a private party in Los Angeles where the automaker unveiled its custom vehicles that are heading to Las Vegas this year. The trio of Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge vehicles were present, along with four other customized Scion FR-S models, all sporting a different theme.
Imagine choosing from eight different exhaust notes without ever leaving your truck – that’s what Magnaflow senior manager Richard Waitas did not too long ago and look what happened.
Royal Purple wants to showcase one of its fan’s cars at this year’s SEMA Show with the return of its Show It off at SEMA contest.
This year’s SEMA Show is distant on the calendar, but it’s never too early for builders to release sneak previews of what they’re working on.
Swedish car designer Bo Zolland will be putting his spin on a classic 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for this year’s show, and judging by the pictures, it’s going to be a real winner.
Zolland, who recently renamed his firm from Vizualtech to Zolland Design AB, is previously known for his Jaguar E-Type Growler Concept, that is heading off to limited production as the Lyonheart K. But unlike the classy, clean bodylines we see in the Jaguar concept, this Camaro is all-American mean muscle.
Clearly the custom Camaro will sport a nice widebody with a sleek coat of black paint. It appears that the doors were cut down to lower the beltline; which is contrary to what we see with conventional hot-rod builders that tend to chop the roof of their cars. Nonetheless, from what little we see of this Camaro, it’s already looking great.
Under the hood will be a LS3 V8, supercharged of course, while the factory brakes and suspension have been swapped out for some more modern counterparts. We can’t wait to see this creation in person this year in Las Vegas.

SEMA is a long way off, but this could help you curb your anxiety until November. Creations n’ Chrome has teamed up with Gurnade Design Firm to show off this detailed renderingof their upcoming Ford Mustang project to debut at the 2012 SEMA Show.
Creations n’ Chrome built numerous Mustangs for SEMA and Ford as recently as 2010 and 2011. Last year, they also built the unique Blue Angels Ford Mustang that claimed $400,000 at a charity auction. This year, however, it seems that they are after a retro look. Given how big of a hit the 1993 Cobra R was at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year, this project should have quite the crowd around it.
The one-of-a-kind Mustang will be in the Spectra Chrome booth at this year’s SEMA Show, packing the new HRE Vintage Series wheels and “something special and supercharged” under the hood. We’re guessing we’ll be seeing some new-age Ford powerplant running this classic Fox Body Mustang.
