This years SEMA show, held at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, is the stomping ground for the latest and greatest in modified cars. It acts mainly as a tradeshow, what is also a great platform for tuners and distributors to show off their latest and greatest wares. This year was no exception and the muscle cars on show, ranged from the vintage to the latest creations.

As per usual, we will slowly drip feed the vehicles from the show, but here are some of the muscle car highlights to whet your appetite.

Ford Mustang Lithium EV

As reviewed yesterday, Ford have come out swinging with an all electric pony car, called the Mustang Lithium. Not exactly the chest beating V8 most would want, as that’s been left to the 2020 GT500, but this vehicle will act as a prototype testbed for future EVs. The front mounted electric motor is claimed to produce 888bhp and can be used with a six speed manual transmission. Lots of drive options in the form of valet, sport, track and beast, to unleash different levels of power. At this stage it’s going to be interesting to see how well this Mustang will go down or not with traditional muscle car fans.

Ring Brothers ‘Unkl’ 700Hp Boss

The Ring Brothers are staple muscle car builders at the SEMA show and they carry on the tradition this year with a customized Mach 1. The car looks very traditional from the outside, but this is where the common looks end. The build is based around a 520ci. V8 Jon Kaase Boss engine, going through a Bowler-built 6-speed Tremec transmission and a carbon fiber driveshaft.

The suspension system comes from Detroit Speed Engineering, with a cast aluminum cradle upfront and adjustable RideTech coilovers. While at the rear there are RideTech components, along with rear sway bars. Baer 6S Extreme brake calipers sit at all four corners, while the interior gets customized Recaro seats and dash.


Apparently, the “Unkl” bit comes from a commemoration to a family member from one of the build team.

Quintin Brothers Auto and Performance smashed Dodge Challenger
It’s not often that a wrecked vehicle becomes one of the highlights of the SEMA show, but this was the case with a Dodge Challenger from Quintin Brothers Auto and Performance.

The car was all prepped and ready for being a centrepiece at the show, but the car was stolen and suffered damage by ramming into a police cruiser just a week before. Instead of trying to patch up the damage, the car was instead shown as it was found, complete with yellow police tape and even a child’s seat and junkfood still in the car. Hopefully, the car will be back next year in better shape.
