As "Joe Public" couldn't get in the door to see the stunning array of vehicles at the annual Sema Show we have put together a package that highlights the tricked out treats.

By clicking photos to the left you can check the stunning array of vehicles that many will either love, hate or simply wonder why some vehicles have been modified.

And, of course, it wouldn't be a motor show without models and there is gallery devoted them as well.

Sema (Specialty Equipment Market Association) has been holding these "closed to the public" shows since 1963 and last week's event in Las Vegas featured more than 2000 exhibiting companies. In Sema's words: "These companies manufacture thousands of products designed to improve performance, safety and convenience, as well as those that enhance appearance and comfort."

Net result though is some of the hottest trends in automotive style, be it a Honda Civic, Toyota Prius, Rolls-Royce, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, BMW, Hyundai or a huge Ford F-Series truck.

The Mustang was named Hottest Car at the awards while the Scion FR-S took the Hottest Sport Compact honours, the Ford F-Series was the Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler received the Hottest 4x4-SUV award.

"The Sema Show has always been about innovative products and trends," Chris Kersting, Sema's president and CEO, said.

"The Sema Award amplifies the industry's special ability to identify and set trends that consumers follow."

Awards recognise vehicle models that specialty-equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorisation and that showcase the year's coolest products.

"The Sema Award helps guide consumers toward the hottest-trending and most accessory friendly vehicles on the market," added Kersting.
