It looks like there might not be room for anyone but Ford at the SEMA Show this year. The Blue Oval has already announced a lineup of eight Fiestas, seven F-Series trucks and a selection of other vehicles that include everything from a Taurus to a Lincoln MKX; and now Ford has released info on nice 2011 Mustangs that are sure to attract a crowd at the world’s largest aftermarket expo.

While Ford will have their own Ford Custom Accessories Mustang on hand showing just how you can equip your ‘Stang straight from the dealer, some of the more impressive vehicles include the Mustang drag car build by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Ford, sporting a Ford Racing Performance Parts supercharger, Roush front-end and Cervini’s hood. Also of note is the Raceskinz Mustang with a ProCharger supercharger mated to the 5.0-liter V8 and a rear-seat delete. And let’s not forget the Mobsteel Mustang that’s all blacked-out and includes a turbocharged V6 under the hood.

And with Ford getting more progressive with the classic lines of the Mustang, let’s not forget the sport-compact themed Team Baurtwell car that includes a 3dCarbon aero kit or the Tjin Edition car. There’s also a solid chance the Street Scene Equipment Mustang Convertible could be a stunner in person.

And let’s not forget the Creations n’ Chrome Mustang that was built to raise awareness for breast cancer with a Vortech supercharger, HRE wheels, 3dCarbon aero kit and, of course, bright pink paint.

AutoGuide’s coverage of the 2010 SEMA Show starts November 2nd an we’ll be sure to bring you extensive photos of each car from the show floor. Until then, check out our SEMA Preview here.

Mid-sized sedans aren’t exactly the type of vehicle that spring to mind when you think of the SEMA Show, but Ford will be presenting three versions of its impressive new family car in Las Vegas next week. Each of the three vehicles represents a different part of the Fusion’s spectrum, with a hybrid offering, a high volume four-cylinder model and a powerful V6 Sport model.

Seemingly the least exciting, the 4-cylinder Fusion might just be the opposite. The Ford Fusion T4 by MRT (pictured above) gets a turbocharger to help pump out a lot more power, but still retains a reasonable level of fuel economy – along the lines of Ford’s own EcoBoost setup. MRT estimates the car should make anywhere from 275 to 300-hp. Other modifications include an intercooler, a special exhaust system, an H&R Springs suspension setup and a set of 20-inch wheels.

For a more dedicated approach to fuel economy (performance be damned) the folks at MJ Enterprises modified the Fusion Hybrid. The car is now even greener thanks to: a reduced body weight (with lighter products); a more aerodynamic body; heat-reflective paint and the removal of petroleum-based products.

Finally, Ford will showcase the efforts of Aaron Vaccar Signature Series, and owner Aaron Vaccar. This 3.5-liter V6 Fusion also gets a turbocharger for what will no doubt be an SHO matching amount of power.
