The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show held each year in Las Vegas is one of the hottest auto shows of the year. However, you won’t be seeing any standard off-the-line models. Everything here is custom.
This year, Toyota’s SEMA display will feature 14 custom vehicles, all within the theme of “Let’s Go Places.”
One of the highlights will be the Ultimate Utility Vehicle, which was unveiled earlier this summer as part of Toyota’s Ever-Better Expedition. Despite its hardcore appearance, this is actually the body of a Sienna minivan attached to a Tacoma pickup chassis and then fitted with a TRD supercharger, 22×12-inch Monster Energy off-road wheels, upgraded Heim steering, and a wicked black paint job.
Also on display will be Toyota’s rich motorsports heritage with the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 Toyota Camry, which has achieved two Sprint Cup wins so far this year.
This year, Toyota is also giving a nod to its avid fan base and will display five owner-modified Toyota vehicles, including a 1970 Toyota Crown that won Best of Show at Toyotafest, a 1985 Corolla GT-S Hachiroku, and more.
