Most outrageous and powerful cars from SEMA 2015

The 2015 SEMA show will take place from 3-6 November 2015 in Las Vegas, and is billed as the “premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world”.

“It draws the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to one place,” said the show’s organisers.

The 2014 SEMA event attracted over 60,000 buyers, and this year’s show is expected to see another great turnout.

Unlike other car shows, vehicle manufacturers don’t keep their latest and greatest designs hidden until the event is opened – with companies advertising what will be at the show beforehand.

Here are the more outrageous vehicles that were on show at SEMA 2015.

Custom 1970 Chevy Camaro RS

The Camaro RS comes with an LT4 crate engine that produces 484kW (650hp), and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
