ETíS TALK about change. Since 1967, when only five cars graced the Speed Equipment Ma n u f a c t u r i n g Associationís debut event, SEMA has grown from a soiree to a circus that swallows 3500km-squared of floor space and funnels 60,000 people through its entry gates.

What hasnít changed, though, is its fundamental point: to indiscriminately showcase the vibrant tuning industry under bright lights.

Think of it as a motor show thatís been left unattended by the class teacher and everyoneís taken the chance to go crazy.

Itís a place where squires and doyens of tuning display their wildest projects to attract vital brand exposure and participate in business-related mingling.

This mixing pot of tuners breeds a variety of creations unlike anywhere else; where weird, wild, and wonderful is the norm.

To make sure you donít miss out on the annual dose of crazy, weíve gathered our favourites from SEMA 2015. Enjoy!
