    1415238060

    Part of the joy of the SEMA Show is that all of the best tuners in the world are competing to show off their wares, and the challenge often pushes the companies into some absolutely insane directions.

    1415236800

    Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments.

    1415231940

    Not all the cars at the 2014 SEMA Show are covered in wild paint jobs, fitted with wheels the size of moons and featuring obscene amounts of horsepower. Some, like the Panoz Esperante Spyder GT 25th Anniversary Edition, just look like very good sporty cars. This is the first time we've seen t...

Or the little red number you see hiding in the b...

    1415224680
