Girls of SEMA 2010MICROMAG and CarReview was onsite at the 2010 SEMA Show from November 2nd through the 5th, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This show not only featured some of the coolest rides you will ever set your sights on but also some of the hottest girls found at any event. It seems like every supplier found top models to drive attention to their wares and their efforts do not go unnoticed.

THOUSANDS of people roam the show floor photographing these lovely, expressive, outgoing, sexy, sweet and wonderfully fun loving pretties. This year, our uncontrollable, hormone-deficient cameras went the extra mile, and we found hundreds of pictures of those scantily clad, oh-so beautiful models on our cameras… weird. As such, we thought that you might like to see how hard we work. Below, you will find pictures of those lovely SEMA ladies from this year.

SEMA 2010 Day 1 Photo Gallery

MicroCarMag-CarReview SEMA 2010 show coverageThe 2010 SEMA show is the world’s largest aftermarket expo and this year boasts significant participation by more than a few major automakers. New ideas, renewed enthusiasm, and the penchant for going bigger while being eco-conscious all in the same breath. Below are a few photos that our friends from Microcarmag.com sent us. The full set of photos from Day 1 can be found in the CarReview SEMA 2010 photo gallery.

One example of a major carmaker having a presence is Honda having a grand total of 12 different CR-Zs on display at this year’s SEMA show. In addition to the Mugen and Hybrid R, big name companies like Bisimoto Engineering, DSO Eyewear, Eibach Springs, Fortune Motorsports and Konig Wheels have created their own one-off CR-Zs, accounting for a little less than half of Honda’s overall showing. Two special project CR-Zs are on hand, as well, done up by the folks from Honda Tuning Magazine and the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Honda Performance Development CR-Z Racer looks like a true racing machine with its fully stripped-down body, a lowered suspension, functional aerokit, and a set of 17-inch wheels with meaty racing slicks.

SEMA 2010 Show Previews

SEMA 2010 logoHeld each year in Las Vegas, Nevada, the SEMA Show 2010 is an industry event for the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association.

Much more than just a trade show, SEMA brings together tuners and parts suppliers from across the auto industry to display their latest products using some of the most highly-modified and colorful vehicles anywhere in the world. Sometimes these creations are things of beauty, and some time they are outright disasters, which is part of what makes the SEMA Show so entertaining. Sharing the trade show floor along with the modified hot rods, muscle cars and sport compact cars, will be some mainstream automakers that are bringing an increasingly important presence at SEMA.

TechArt singlehandedly creates Porsche Panamera aftermarket.

Tuesday February 2nd, 2010 at 8:22 AM
Posted by: michael.leroy

techart panameraTechArt adds panache to the Porsche Panamera.

If the rather unique look of the Porsche Panamera is not enough for you, maybe you should look into the range of aftermarket goodies TechArt is offering. The Leonberg, Germany based company claims their body kits are of OE quality and we would have to agree. The new front bumper really does look like it came straight from Porsche’s plant in Leipzig. The body kit improves the look of the car without looking gaudy or losing the signature Porsche look.

The TechArt front bumper kit not only improves the look of the Panamera, it also may improve the aerodynamics of the high-end sport sedan. The three-part front spoiler should help improve high-speed stability and the redesigned front bumper helps cool the front brakes.

Tommy Kaira tunes 2010 Toyota Prius

Tony Kaira Toyota Prius
JDM tuner gives the plain Prius an aggressive look.

Prius owners looking to hotrod their hybrids should grab their credit card and English to Japanese dictionary. Tommy Kaira, the famous Japanese tuner best known by Americans from Gran Turismo, is now offering a range of performance parts and body kits for the car.

The body kit includes a new front bumper, a rear bumper with diffuser and side skirts. The kit really does manage to improve the rather mundane look of the car and is almost what you would expect if Toyota sold the Prius as a Scion. An odd touch is four exhaust tips which may be going a bit too far.

SEMA Has More to Show Than Just Hot Cars

2009 SEMA Show Hankook booth babes

It wouldn’t be SEMA without the gratuitous hotties showing off the latest products in the booths by some of Las Vegas’ very puurrrty girls. We managed to capture many of them in their most sultry poses and thanking the electronic genius for auto-focus and steady-shot. Otherwise there would be a lot of barely-in-focus, fuzzy pictures in our photo gallery. No worries. I have a feeling that you would look at them anyway.

Below are a few of my favorites. I apologize for not getting their measurements, interests, and favorite past time. If you haven’t seen enough of what this year’s SEMA show had to offer, click the link to view our complete collection in the photo gallery.

SEMA

Hey Everyone at CarReview.com – It’s Thomas, founder of Microcarmag.com, here with my Day 1 report from the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Day 1 started with such fury as we witnessed the unveiling of some killer rides and heard announcements from some of the major automakers in our industry! The very first unveiling had Peter Klut from Dream Car Garage, a SPEED Channel show following the work of Peter’s crew at Legendary Motorcar, showing us an awesome 1970 Super Cuda that combined classic design with carbon fiber and Chip Foose green paint at the BASF paint booth.  Klut’s special guest at the unveiling was none other than the famous designer Chip Foose!  This unveiling was just the tip of the iceberg for our Day 1.

Custom Lincoln MKS, MKT and MKZ to 2009 SEMA Show

Lincoln MKT

Son, you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’, if ya don’t stop drivin’ that hot rod Lincoln. Yeah, way back when, Lincolns were not cars to be trifled with. They had big enough plants and there was enough go fast goodies out there that you wouldn’t treat them the way … well, the way you’d look at a Lincoln today.

Sure, for the past however long, they’ve been very nice and luxurious Fords, but performance cars? Not so much. Lincoln is looking to change that with three customized rides rolling out at this years SEMA show.
