It’s that time of the year again, when the US-based Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) Show rolls into Las Vegas.

Showcasing the best the automotive aftermarket has to offer, the SEMA show attracts more than 100,000 industry representatives from over 100 countries, including Australia.

It’s also a chance for carmakers to team up with aftermarket specialists and ‘let their hair down’; showcasing concepts and ideas that are unlikely to make it into production.

So what has caught our eye so far from this year’s SEMA Show? Enjoy our ‘top five’, in no particular order of preference.



Australia’s home-grown Holden VF Commodore is attracting plenty of attention at the SEMA Show thanks to this Chevrolet SS concept, with a helping hand on design coming from NASCAR great Jeff Gordon.

Complete with Gordon’s famous number 24 logo on the doors, the SS also features 20-inch wheels, a carbon-fibre rear spoiler, lowered suspension, upgraded brakes and a high-flow exhaust.

Gordon selected a flat-bottomed steering wheel, suede inserts for the seats and sports pedals for the interior.



We first met the Honda Mean Mower in July this year, and now the world’s ultimate grass-cutting machine has made its way to the SEMA Show.

It packs a 1.0 litre V-Twin engine producing 81kW and 96Nm and, thanks to its 140kg weight, can achieve 0-100km/h in just over four seconds.

The Mower is fitted with a six-speed paddle-shifted transmission and has been clocked at 160km/h.



For those that can’t bear to be away from their ‘regular’ Mustang long enough to play 18 holes, you can now take this miniature version with you.

Designed to celebrate the Mustang’s 50th anniversary, the golf cart features Mustang front styling, a 48 volt power system and a top speed of around 32km/h; all yours for US$18,795 (AU$19,845).



What better way to announce the arrival of the all-new Toyota Highlander (Kluger) than to fill it with 3028 litres of water and 32 different species of fish?

Toyota’s Kluger fish tank carries a SpongeBob SquarePants theme, is equipped with a custom filtration system and has enough space to house 115 fish. We assume there’s plenty of air in those tyres…

Those with long memories may recall a similar effort from Honda at the Melbourne Aquarium in 2002, with its HR-Sea fish tank (as apposes to HR-V).



There’s plenty of Hot Wheels models out there for the keen collector which offer a great chance to own a car you otherwise could probably never afford (or be able to justify owning).

Rarely, however, does the full-sized version also carry Hot Wheels’ aggressive styling and signage, particularly when it’s powered by a 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine.

Ford has arrived at SEMA with ten Transit concepts, and this Connect Hot Wheels version features gull-wing doors and 20-inch wheels along with a 138cm television screen and two 45cm tablets on the inside.

The SEMA Show runs until Friday, November 8.
