On Tuesday the world’s biggest spectacle of automotive modification—The SEMA Show—kicked off in Las Vegas, Nevada. To the delight of Ford fans, the Blue Oval put on an awesome showing inside and outside the convention center. Of course, the car that clearly set out to steal the show was the 2015 Mustang, which earned yet another Hottest Car Award from the Specialty Market Manufacturers’ Association.
While there were certainly plenty of other Ford cars and trucks on display, we couldn’t help but be excited about seeing a herd of modified 2015 Mustangs. With the real cars just leaving dealer lots scant weeks ago, it is rare to lay eyes on a stock S550, much less see multiple heavily modified versions of the latest Mustang.
From finally getting to see these modified Mustangs in person to laying eyes on a massive number of new products for all manner of Fords, this show is a feast for the senses, and it will keep us running all week long.
We will wrap up the show with more comprehensive coverage in the near future, but for now we wanted to share a few highlights from the big first day.
