The 2013 SEMA Show: A Glimpse at the Past, Present, and Future
By Chuck Johnson
It’s T minus zero and the 2013 SEMA Show has officially opened its doors. Sometime in the wee morning hours beforehand though, the MotoIQ black Ops team infiltrated the Las Vegas Convention Center, ninja outfits and all, to bring you a quick glimpse of what this year’s SEMA Show has in store.
Last year, an infestation of Scion FR-S’s and Subaru BRZ’s took over the SEMA Show. What car will steal this year’s spot light though?
The new C7 Corvette Stingray is a formidable contender with its bold, panty-dropping body lines and brutish, factory 450 plus horsepower engine.
With all those pent up stallions under the hood, I have a feeling most stop light challengers will be left with this very view of the C7 Corvette Stingray. And at that moment, they’ll probably be thinking the same thing I am, “WTF, is up with the four exhaust tips?”
If the outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center is any indicator though, it looks like the Corvette Stingray doesn’t stand a chance in dethroning the little Toyoburu. The Corvette Stingray might have the talent and the proper racing genes, but the sheer quantity of Scion FR-S’s and Subaru BRZ’s is simply overwhelming.
The Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z’s are seemingly stuffed in every nook and cranny, peering out from behind every corner of the SEMA Show. Hey Nissan, you think there is a market here? Oh wait, you brilliantly answered this call with the Nissan Joke… I mean Junk, or whatever you call that hideous thing. Oh well, at least you didn’t mess up the GT-R or Z car.
