Like in the past, SEMA introduced concept cars from different ranges, Crossovers, SUVs and a lot of performance vehicles. This year, the event once more teased the best that the automotive industry has in store for car aficionados for the next year.
Hyundai has made one of their performance cars, the Veloster, and transformed it into the Gurnade Veloster concept. The car comes fitted with custom suspensions and a big brake kit. A new tune four-cylinder engine, intercooler, down pipe and a cold air intake are under the hood.
Hyundai also added a new exhaust. Concept sports bucket racings seats and harness to keep the driver well bolstered, and a lightweight carbon fiber steering wheel to give better steering feedback. A roll cage is installed for protection, gauges and led indicator lights can also be found on the dash for data logging and reading.
Mazda introduces two new concept cars using the Miata. The MX-5 Miata Speedster Evolution and the MX-5 RF Kuro, both cars are based on the 2017 MX-5 RF. Design Manager Ken Saward led the projects and says that the Speedster Evolution's goal is to further deliver the essence of what the Miata has represented since it started, lightweight and pure driving joy.
Honda also re-introduces the Civic Type R prototype that was also announced at the Paris show. The high performance car still showed its large rear wings, functional aero kits, and is still in its mean matte black color.
While there is a lot of promising concept cars that could possibly hit the roads, one car was voted as the hottest coupe, the Ford Mustang. One Mustang was covered in a beautiful carbon fiber trim, another was Ken Block's 1965 RTR Hoonicorn RTR Twin Turbo, and a Ford GT Mustang tribute from Zero to 60 Designs.
There are a lot more concept cars that need attention, all concepts, and mostly beautiful machines. You can still catch the 2016 SEMA Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center until November 4.
