2005 SEMA Auto Show

When the SEMA Show hits Vegas, it’s not the showgirls and neon that dazzle our eyes, but the showcars and headlights that leave us blinking in amazement.

2006 Foose “Stallion” Convertible Mustang



In response to the strongdemand received by the prototype coupe launched during the Woodward Dream Cruise, Unique Performance and Foose Design developed a convertible version of the 2005 Foose Stallion Mustang. Both vehicles feature custom front grille and hood, new front and rear fascias, lowered stance, custom-designed wheels, and interior touches, as well as specialty products from DuPont’s Hot Hues, Ford Racing, JBA, Baer Brakes, Kenwood, and BFGoodrich. “Our vision for this convertible is really going to turn heads and excite Mustang fans,” says Chip Foose. Unique Performance will assist with engineering and developing the modifications, while OEM supplier Tecstar will handle engineering, validation, and assembly. Both models of the Foose Stallion are on track for production in the first quarter of 2006, with a total of 3000 coupe and convertible Stallion Mustangs to be built a year. Prices will range between $38,000 and $40,000, depending on options and performance packages.

2006 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang GT



Face it, our passion for cars was largely fueled by the Hot Wheels we played with as children. For 2006 Hot Wheels is taking to the city streets and highways of America in full-size, thanks to a new line of products and accessories that bear the Hot Wheels name. This Ford Mustang GT was customized by the internal Hot Wheels (HW) design team to feature a HW/Carbon Creations carbon fiber wide body kit, plus carbon fiber trunk, hood, and wing; the body wears a custom billet grille, and custom HW/PPG candy blue paint. Inside are Carbon Fiber Status bucket racing seats, HW suede door inserts, and Clarion/Audiobahn head unit with four 12-inch subs and three 1000-watt amps. Suspension and performance mods include an Eibach suspension, K&N intake, Vortech Engineering supercharger, Rotora Big Brake kit, Dropstars 22-inch wheels wrapped in BFG KDW tires, and Magnaflow dual exhaust.

2006 Shelby/West Coast Customs Mustang



It’s not often that the custom buildups presented at SEMA ever actually go on sale, but 25 lucky people will have the opportunity top ark one of these Shelby-modified 2006 Ford Mustangs in their own garage. Carroll Shelby has teamed up with the creative design team of West Coast Customs (WCC), adding an exclusive Vortech supercharger and remapping the onboard computer to boost output above 500 horsepower. Exterior enhancements include a new single-scoop hood design, new fender swells and rocker panels, specially designed front bumper side scoops, rear wing, and fenders, and 22-inch Shelby/WCC-branded Lexani wheels with Pirelli tires. Inside is a custom-embroidered interior featuring Shelby and WCC logo badging, Sony DVD head unit with 7-inch monitor, and a full-blown WCC sound system. Interested buyers can get more information at www.shelbyautos.com.

Ford General Contractor Mobile Office F-250 Super Duty



Ford developed its “General Contractor” concept to showcase the ultimate office environment for the contractor on the go. Based on the F-250 Super-Duty, it features GPS, wireless broadband, printer, and a digital-camera-equipped mobile computer to allow a contractor to bid jobs, order parts, and purchase parts, materials, and payments while on location in their truck. This mobile office system is in development as a possible future dealer-installed accessory through Ford in 2006. The Stargate mobile computer uses a touchscreen mounted on the transmission tunnel within easy reach of the driver, or it can be easily removed for use as an ordinary laptop, and offers full Windows XP functionality including Outlook for email, Streets and Trips 2006 for real-time navigation, and Internet Explorer for Web browsing. The truck itself benefits from a Fabtech 6-inch suspension lift kit, aggressive Weld wheels with BF Goodrich tires, and a bed packed with a traveling shop full of everything a contractor would need to get the job done right.

FunkMaster Flex Fusion



The FunkMaster Flex Fusion (say that seven times fast) was created to be an integral part of Ford’s new African-American “Grown and Sexy” Web site, which features the Flex Fusion Night Club online game. The FunkMaster started with a basic 2006 Fusion and added a two-tone paint scheme, chrome accents, new grille, and tinted windows to invite people to discover what’s inside. The interior boasts Ostrich leather interior, Clarion nav system, Icon TV monitors in the rear headrests, JL Audio amplifiers and speakers, and a side-mirror camera system. Performance mods include a Flowmaster exhaust, Wilwood brakes, H&R springs, and Boze alloy three-piece wheels black-chrome wheels wrapped in 19-inch front and 20-inch rear Toyo performance tires. You don’t have to own the car to play the game, which is all about breaking free from convention to enjoy life with style and attitude; you can experience it yourself at www.grownandsexy.com.

Shelby CS6 Mustang Concept



Legendary racecar driver and Cobra creator Carroll will offer a modified V-6 upgrade package for 2006 Ford Mustang. The CS 6 features a Shelby-exclusive Paxton NOVI-1200 Centrifugal supercharger that increases horsepower from the stock 210 to more than 350. Available in two stages, the package is intended to produce a faster, lighter, and more powerful Mustang with official Shelby performance, all for under $35,000; it can be installed by Ford dealers on either coupes or convertibles, will carry Ford warranty, and can be financed into the cost at the time of purchase. The Stage 1 appearance package includes front fascia and side scoops, custom hood and upper and lower grilles, interior upgrades, 20-inch American Racing wheels, and custom striping, graphics, and logos, all for $5499. The Stage 2 Performance package includes all of the above and adds suspension upgrades, Borla dual exhaust, 350-hp Paxton supercharger, Baer Signature Series Brakes with Shelby Calipers, and rear fascia and rear gear upgrades, all for $14,999. (Prices do not include labor.) More information can be found at www.shelbyautos.com.

LAND ROVER NORTH AMERICA SHOWS CUSTOMIZED RANGE ROVER SPORT IN VEGAS
Land Rover Partners with Troy Lee Designs for SEMA 2005

LAS VEGAS - Land Rover North America today presents the first Range Rover Sport to appear at the annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (SEMA) show. Celebrating a successful U.S. launch earlier this summer, Land Rover unveils a concept from the custom paint shop of Troy Lee Designs, a major supplier and designer of premium motorcycle, ATV, and bicycle competition apparel.

Inspired by the ‘technicolors’ of Las Vegas, the Range Rover Sport Supercharged is packed with details. Completed in Southern California
at Faerber Productions, Land Rover’s long-time product development partner, the 10-stage painting process was conceived and executed by Troy Lee Designs.

Starting with three coats of House of Kolor™ black paint for the base color, the process included over 250 hours – from base coat to hand painted design and finishing. This includes innovative design details throughout the
vehicle – most impressively the application of 12 karat white gold leaf for the Range Rover lettering. Using colors ranging from Tru Blu Metallic to Candy Tangerine and Cherry Pearl, the end result delivers a one-of-a-kind creation that immediately states ‘Vegas.’

“At this year’s SEMA show, Land Rover wanted to celebrate the success of the Range Rover Sport launch,” said Land Rover Brand Manager Greg Gilliland. “The driving concept was a Range Rover Sport for Las Vegas .”
The 2006 Range Rover Sport’s interior is complete with hand-painted Candy Apple Red trim, and a customized, ultra-premium 1000-watt harman/kardon® LOGIC7™ audio system.

“Land Rover wanted a vehicle uniquely designed for Las Vegas , so I got out the spray guns and went for it,” said Troy Lee, owner Troy Lee Designs. “ The result is a Range Rover Sport with a scheme inspired by the ‘technicolors’ of Vegas.”

Range Rover Sport
Range Rover Sport, available in a naturally aspirated or supercharged derivative features the latest in automotive technology, providing dynamic and sophisticated on-road capability while maintaining
Land Rover’s supremely capable off-road credentials. A powerful supercharged 4.2-liter V8 engine delivers 390 bhp, and is complemented by a six-speed automatic transmission, four-corner independent
height-adjustable air suspension and Land Rover’s Terrain Response™ system. For more information about Land Rover, and the 2006 Range Rover Sport, visit www.landroverusa.com.
Troy Lee Designs is a major supplier of premium motorcycle, ATV, and bicycle competition apparel designed for the “World’s Fastest Racers”, as well as the most recognized custom helmet paint shop on the planet.

Re: US:2005 SEMA Auto Show

Ford GTX1

AUTOWEEK

Ford has chopped the top off of its Ford GT and cut it into four pieces for the SEMA show, thanks in large part to Ford SVT engineering supervisor Kip Ewing and some SEMA aftermarket friends. Insipired by the 1966 Sebring-winning Ford GTX1 roadster, Ewing, who worked on the Ford GT project, completed the initial design sketches and engineering studies on his own. Mark Gerisch of Genaddi Design Group, an experienced designer and metal shaper with a history of cutting the roofs off of exotic cars, was chosen to help make a roadster out of the GT. Gerisch and his team developed a roof system consisting of four individual hard panels for the GTX1, allowing it to be configured as a coupe, t-top or full convertible. With all the panels installed, the outer panels can be locked into a vent position and all four panels can be stored inside the vehicle when removed.

FORD FUSION VEHICLES

ANDREW LUU/AUTOWEEK

Fusing Six: Ford looks to SEMA to add spice to its new family flag bearer

You can always count auto manufacturers to turn up at the SEMA show and try to convince drivers that their latest cars hold a lot more potential than meets the eye. Consider the Ford Fusion. One couldn’t be faulted for thinking the Fusion was just another word for a modernized Taurus, which it supplants in Ford’s range. To shake off the Taurus familymobile stigma, Ford presented not one, but six tuned Fusions at SEMA to alter your perception: two for looks, two for handling and two for power. It’s little surprise that the bulk of talent Ford enlisted to juice up the new model hails from the West Coast.

3D Carbon from Newport Beach, California (owned by the founders of body-kit icon Wings West) and Street Scene Equipment out of Costa Mesa, California concentrated on the Fusion’s appearance. Rather than go with wild wings and wide body flares, both design firms opted for a European performance sedan persona that’s aggressive with a ground hugging stance while remaining true to the car’s original lines. Think Mercedes-Benz AMG or BMW M Division.

FocusSport Works Fusion

Surry, British Columbia’s HPA Motorsports and suspension specialist H&R Springs out of Bellingham, Washington both built Fusions that also look fast, but their efforts targeted the driving dynamics. Both firms exploited the car’s handling potential by fully upgrading the suspension pieces.

For us the biggest change in perception comes from two SoCal shops, Draxas and FocusSport, out of Palmdale and Anaheim respectively. They chose the 2.3-liter inline four-cylinder Fusions, and not only made them look faster and turn harder but also bolted on intercooled turbochargers, a process both are familiar with from tuning the Focus. Draxas estimates its Fusion will churn out 400 hp. Now that’s no modernized Taurus.

Re: US:2005 SEMA Auto Show

SEMA 2005

It's all about the aftermarket in Sin City this week, and we take you there...

BY LARRY WEBSTER
CAR&DRIVER

While the Specialty Equipment Market Association’s (SEMA) largest show is not open to the public, we’re going to bring it you. Let us first try and explain the madness that is the SEMA show. Held in Las Vegas, the show occupies an enormous one million square feet of space. Over 10,000 exhibitors display everything from neon lights, to superchargers, to wheels. It’s huge and about impossible to see it all. One of the frustrations of SEMA is that there are countless cool cars strewn all about the place (like the unknown car with the cool carbon-fiber hood scoop above right) with no placard or anything to explain what the hell you’re looking at.

Perhaps the best thing about SEMA is that everyone involved is almost as car crazy as we are and that passion translates into some wild show cars and interesting parts. And while no one needs any of it, it’s stuff we all want. Well, as least we want some of the stuff. The cars with TV screens in the wheel wells (yes there is such a beast) are a little over-the-top silly to us. The following are some of the cars that caught our eyes; check back during the week as we bring you more eye candy from the show.

Foose Mustang Stallion



Don’t be looking under the hood for more horses, this Mustang is basically a styling exercise. Designed by the talented hot-rod builder Chip Foose, there are a lot of body changes that include a new hood with a functional air scoop, 20-inch wheels, and revised bumpers and rocker panels. It looks terrific and Foose design and Unique Performance are working together to offer the parts for sale.

Ford F250



Some pickups are so tall, that it’s a pain to load anything in the bed. Well, SEMA’s got the answer. With the use of hydraulic actuators, the bed on this Ford painlessly lowers itself to the ground. Problem solved.

Troy Lee Designs Mazda MX-5



Not much news here as this is simply a standard MX-5 with a very cool paint job.
