SEMA Show 2014 boasted plenty of automotive variety

Gizmag spent the better part of last week touring the halls of the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. A bit of a change from your typical Paris or New York auto show, SEMA focuses in on components and accessories ... and the wild automobiles they create. It's a jungle of the flashy and impractical, with everything from pristine classics preparing for the auction block to outrageous one-offs that will never be seen again. Here are our favorite cars of the show.

Given the sheer volume of vehicles inside, outside and around the greater vicinity of SEMA, this will be the first of several round-ups from the show. Here, we look at the lighter vehicles of the show – mostly cars, but also a few motorcycles, three-wheelers and world record streamliners. Step into the gallery and behold the mad science of automotive specialty parts and tuning.

What a wacky automotive smorgasbord! I guess that is to be expected in LA. A few gems, some notables, and a whole lotta 'what were they thinking?' My favorite is the Factory Five GTM (10, 11, + 12). Low, sleek and GT40ish, with that satin finish on the gun-metal-gray paint job to make it look stealth.
