Top 10 Worst Ugly and Tacky Cars From SEMA 2015

SEMA wouldn’t be complete without a few terribly tacky cars, and this year didn’t disappoint.

To be honest, expected to see a lot more awful cars at SEMA, but this year, construction took away some outside show space, and this is where the truly laughable stuff can usually be found.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but if you find these cars beautiful, well, then the beholder is pretty messed up. Scroll below to see‘s Top 10 worst cars of this year’s SEMA show.

10. Diseased Green Tricycle

Looking like something out of a straight-to-DVD B sci-fi movie, this green three-wheel chopper designed with some pimping underworld ruler in mind is definitely one of the ugliest things at SEMA this year. Besides looking diseased, it’s also terribly impractical. But being impractical doesn’t matter when something is this ugly.

9. Crystal Covered Porsche

How do you ruin a perfectly good vintage Porsche 356? Put thousands of crystals all over it. This is just so bad because one of the best parts of this Porsche is its light weight, which made it a great performer. When you add on a few hundred pounds of crystals, not only does it look kind of stupid, but it also makes it way too heavy.

8. Pink Lexus

Someone got the idea for this car after eating a bad burrito and chugging Pepto Bismol to fend off a bad case of the runs. Mmmm stanced Pepto Bismol.

7. Crazy Smart Car

I actually think this Smart car is kind of hilarious and cute, but being cute doesn’t make it any less ridiculous. The best part? Those flame-spitting exhaust pipes tell us that the “Electric Drive” badge on the back is probably a lie.

6. Lifted Bro Truck

Bro, do you even lift? This truck makes no sense because it’s lifted but has no more ground clearance than a suburban parent’s mall-warrior crossover.

5. Whatever This Is

We have no words.

4. Dodge Avenger?

Why is this car even at SEMA?

3. Scion Thing

This gold Scion iA won’t make you look cool. Not one bit.

2. Superman Chrysler 300

This one explains itself. Plus, look at the back side if you’re not convinced.

1. Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet with Massive Rims

Taking the top spot for absolute worst car at the 2015 SEMA Show is this red Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet with obnoxiously massive rims. First of all, we didn’t realize people actually bought this car, and second, we didn’t realize it could get uglier than the stock version. We were so wrong.

    The Porsche only has 30 lbs of crystals on it and it is gorgeous! How can you criticize people's creativity? You should be ashamed of yourself for bashing the hard work of others.

    I think its time the big rim fad had passed on be buried for good. It is the most hideous thing ever dreamed up in USA and should be banished and outlawed from the shops and streets. To think your cool running on those Wagon Wheels you need to seek psychiatric counseling or rehab. It is without doubt the ugliest thing to ever happen to rims scene . Stick to 20" max
