Out of all the auto shows that go on during the year, the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) show has to be the wildest show on the calendar. It’s a show completely filled with the maddest, most outrageous automotive creations on the planet. Last year, when I lost my SEMA virginity, I had a great experience appreciating how much the aftermarket had to offer consumers and businesses alike in the realm of automotive customization. So when I was asked to board a plane headed to Las Vegas for SEMA 2016, there was not a moment of hesitation before I agreed.

mazdunveil1

Mazda revealed their IMSA Championship weapon for the 2017 season. Trust me it is absolutely insane in every way.

First of all, it does not just look fast, it will be really fast and built for the American Endurance Races. While we were expecting a Gibson V8 from a regular LMP2 car, Mazda shocked everybody, not just with the design but also with their new engine decision. They decided to put a 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 Cyl engine that produces 600bhp. It is an incredible amount of power out of a 2.0L engine.  Mazda chose a smaller engine over a big V8 to represent the brand name more effectively and make the car more efficient.

If your lifelong dream was to own an Audi R8 with laser beam headlights, it may be now possible to make your dreams come true. For many years now we have discussed how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards has prevented many automakers from producing and putting some of their important and effective safety equipment on the market such as advanced headlights. However, until recently this situation has changed and the US market is now allowed to sell some of their advanced headlights to consumers.

Toyota’s luxury division appears to be back at it again with criticizing the plug in vehicle market by stressing the many challenges that seem to come with these new electric vehicles that are in the market. Lexus has emphasized the continuous challenges of recharging batteries for vehicles rather than easily just filling up a vehicle with gas or hydrogen. While many of the major car companies have been trying to enter the electric vehicle market, Lexus tends to keep its distance from the idea and rather just stick with its hybrid creations.
