5 Controversial Cars from SEMA 2016 #TENSEMA16

Here we go again

Super Street Staff

Vegas is a magical place with its own unique vibe and character. Throw in the SEMA Show and you're guaranteed to run into some controversial builds. Now, before you start sending hate mail and death threats, we know that personal style is based on preference. Also, we're not saying these builds are in any way bad. We can appreciate craftmanship, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's our cup of tea. We agree to disagree - what are your thoughts on these builds?

ATEQ Mini Cooper

If memory serves us correctly, this is the Ireson Motorsports '65 Mini Cooper pickup. The wild paint job and widebody kit is screaming for attention. It has just as many gauges as a Boeing 787 and a center-drive similar to that of the Spoon Sports USA FD Civic. We do however appreciate the twin, fully built B16s and the all-wheel-drive setup. This car has been around for a few years and we feel like sometimes a sequel just isn't necessary.

Rocket Bunny Style Scion tC

Bruh - we didn't know Kei Miura made a Rocket Bunny V2 front bumper for the Scion tC.

Magnaflow Batmobile

Holy Ravioli, Batman! That's the Batmobile! When you want to bring attention to your booth, a massive, tank-like behemoth is one way to do it.

Sphere Light's Mitsuoka Orochi

Japan has some amazing carmakers, but you've probably never heard of Mitsuoka. This is the carmaker's take on a supercar and its name, Orochi, translates to "eight-forked serpent." While Mitsuoka designs and produces the body, its heart is a Toyota V6.
