So, Halloween has passed, the whistles of the turbos from our #WeHaveBoost theme have died down and it’s time to get serious. Well, by serious, I mean heading to Vegas for a whirlwind of cars, meetings, cars, caffeine boosts, more cars and parties. Yep, it’s that time again – it’s SEMA Show time.
While the average person heads out to Vegas to indulge in a hedonistic cocktail of gambling, shows, glitz and glamour, the Speedhunters team will be rallying to take on the combined might of over 2000 cars spread over more than a million square feet.
We’ve already seen the first big SEMA car hit, in the name of the LB☆WORKS 458, but there’s bound to be other surprises still to come, and we’ll be right there to bring it all directly to your screens.
So whether we’re focusing on the homegrown muscle…
… contributions from other countries…
… motorsport offerings…
… or something for show, we’ll make sure we have it all covered. Make sure you stay tuned for our exclusive coverage from the event over the next few weeks!

Towards the end of the month, we’ll be featuring a mini-theme of ‘Rally Roots’, where we’ll be focusing cars that have ties to the original world of #MaximumAttack, whether they’re in their original form…

Of course, it won’t all be off-road-bred machines.
As usual, we’ll bring you the best selection of machinery from around the world.
