From customized econo-boxes to the most lavish hyper cars on steroids and everything in between, the 2016 SEMA Show seemed to have it all as far as display vehicles. It may not have looked that way when you first got to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the show, considering trucks were the most visible platforms exhibited out in front of the auditoriums. Move past the flat-billed bro veneer, though, and the full spectrum of rides weren’t too hard to dig up.
We hit SEMA hard and fast this year, posting sneak peeks from the Racing and Performance hall and the Wheel and Tire hall before the show had even officially opened its doors. Over the succeeding days, we gathered together the best from the enthusiast space we all know and love, from the general – like supercars, drift machines, JDM builds, vehicles outside of the main halls – to the specific – Porsche, R35 GT-R, the imports of the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. We even got more granular than that, directing the spotlight to standouts like Big Mike’s Prelude, the TCP Magic FD RX-7, Injen’s FK2 Civic Type R, just to name a few.
As is par for the course, though, there were way too many killer cars and not enough Super Street staff to mine the content-rich environment at SEMA. So before it gets any later (and before we head next to the Tokyo Auto Salon to gather even more sick cars, but from Japan this time), we submit to you, loyal follower, our big mama-jamma photo gallery of imports Japanese and European. It doesn’t have every non-domestic car from the 2016 SEMA Show – some are in the galleries we linked to above – but it has a lot of the best. Grab a snack and a cold beverage and enjoy one last comprehensive look at this year’s SEMA.
