I’ve seen pictures of this beauty around the web for a little while now (winning a Riddler award will do that for you) and was excited to see it at SEMA. Imagine my surprise when I walked out of the entry tent @ the Goodguys 16th Southwest nationals and seeing it again! At the Goodguys show the car was in my preferred shooting venue, outdoors! As you may know, I love cars that have deep attention to detail, this badboy is no exception. Cal Auto Creations teamed up with the owners to build this beautiful and on point ride and after some serious modification have the ride that you see below. I am glad that the hood was closed so I could grab pics of its great lines but wish I could have gotten some shots of the blown Ford Flathead V8.
Edit: I looked through my SEMA shots and realized that I did get engine shots, gallery updated below.

This was one of the rides that I ran into when I walked out of the tent @ the Goodguys southwest nationals. There is just so much awesome packed into this ride from the stance to the paint to the beautiful woodwork in the bed.

Another vehicle that was dressed in beautiful bare metal was this monster from Nelson Racing Engines. With over 1500 hours in this hand shaped and widened body, this thing looks amazing. Besides the meticulous metalwork, Nelson dropped in a gnarly powertrain pushing out a mere 2000 HP o.O. The motor is a 9.4 liter Chrysler HEMI that is twin turbocharged, twin intercooled and twin fuel injected. You may say “wha?” about that last part (I know I did), power can be dialed in from 600hp to 2000hp and the computer handles the tune and automatically switches from 90octane to 116octane. There is too much to detail about this beast but it is truly an inspiring ride!
McLaren Philadelphia Brought out this McLaren MP4-12C to SEMA. Love the Volcano Orange color but haven’t ever seen it inside, looks even more amazing than it does in the sun! What is your favorite thing about the MP4-12C?
I dig the Z4 and Slek Designs took it to another level replacing every panel with Carbon Fiber for a savings of 300 lbs. While a body like this may run you about $25k, there is a lot of great custom work here. In addition to the killer CF body, this badboy is blown, breathes through Magnaflow exhaust has an SAE Motorsport Inc. ’cage, is held up by Ksport USA suspension, rides on RSV wheels and is halted by Ksport USA brakes. I am interested to see what kind of times this thing turns on the track which is coming soon from what I hear.
