The suspensions are lowered, the dubs are mounted and the votes are tabulated: with the SEMA show in full swing, organizers have announced their top pics for the show.

Rather than name the top tuned cars, the SEMA Awards name the best cars for tuning, in several categories. And so, the winners of the second annual SEMA Awards are...

The hottest car overall is awarded to the Chevrolet Camaro (like the Hot Wheels concept pictured above), the hottest sport-compact is the Fiat 500, the hottest SUV goes to the Jeep Wrangler, and the hottest truck has been named as the Ford F-Series.

All the award recipients are domestics, save for the Fiat 500, and even that is effectively a Chrysler product made in Mexico. So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Now crack open your aftermarket parts catalogs and have at 'em.

      The Fiat 500 is a compact, not a sport-compact. Nothing sporty about it.

        The car used was a MOPAR-tuned Fiat 500, which makes it plenty sporty.

      And I actually have to agree w/ all the choices, save for the Fiat which is not a sport compact, lol. I would say it's a toss-up between the Focus and Sonic. That Hot Wheels Camaro is just win.

        So a MOPAR-tuned Fiat 500 isn't a sport compact?

      I recognize it as being an excellent example of a new Camaro, but I still don't like or want it. The new Camaro just isn't for me.

      Honestly not a fan of the hot-wheels camaro. Its a well executed job just not my to my taste..... but damn I wish that hood was available to buy as a stand alone product.

      It's a nice effort, but looks too much like a toy to me, which should come as no surprise considering it is the "Hot Wheels Concept". To me, such an eye catching design needs a more conservative color to balance it out. Call me boring, but I think the best color on this car is black.
