SEMA 2011: Wrapup


Ford Motor Company booth:

Ford ICON Bronco

For just $150k, you can get a refurbished 1966-1977 Bronco built with a Coyote 5.0L V8 crate engine from Ford Racing (same as F-150 and Mustang GT), making 412 horsepower and equipped with off-road parts.  Fitting the engine required a custom header and other engine options are available depending on how deep your wallet is. Power gets to the wheels via an Atlas II transfer case and custom Dana 60 and 44 solid axle assemblies.  The ICON uses Eibach springs and Fox Racing shocks to provide 12″ of travel in the front and rear.  

But the crazy mods don't stop there- the grill is laser cut and hand tig-welded with the ICON letters CNC machined stainless steel.  Every item from the mirrors to door handles is designed in CAD and CNC or laser cut.  The sun visors are the same as those in a Learjet. The gauge cluster is a nod to the Bell & Ross watches.  All the suppliers of the ICON are based in the US, except for the leather for the seats which is supplied by Mercedes-Benz.

Creations n' Chrome Boy Racer Mustang
The reflective (and much fingerprinted) Creations n' Chrome Boy Racer Mustang has a Vortech V-3 Si-Trim supercharger, Boss 302 intake manifold and Nitrous Express plate system.  Suspension is KW's Variant 3 coilovers with Wilwood brakes on all four corners.  It also has a roll cage, Sparco seats, 6 point harnesses, Blow-By Racing strut tower brace (which almost appears to be on fire), and a 3D Carbon Boy Racer body kit.


Ford F-650 Mobsteel truck
Mobsteel makes this “Hollow Point” Ford F-650 look like it'd enjoy a good mafia hit.  Based in Detroit (were you guessing Northern NJ?), the interior includes Glock holsters and magazine racks.  Mobsteel shortened and notched the frame.  It has a Caterpillar C7 engine and six speed Allison tranny.  Those are 24″ custom Aztec wheels (to mount your head maybe?) and 2,600 watts of JL Audio power will make sure nobody hears you scream!
