Event Coverage: The 2012 SEMA Show Part 2

On the second installment of “MaydayGarage does 2012 SEMA Show”, we’ll mainly focus on the display cars. With hundreds of company display cars inside and lines of show cars outside of the convention halls, the task at hand was overwhelming, in a good way. Let’s begin…

MaydayGarage does 2012 SEMA Show

Since it’s announcement in 2008, the Toyota GT-86, or it’s stateside name Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, have been eagerly talked in the industry. Fast forward a few years later to the 2012 SEMA show, the majority of the display cars were FR-S’ (and some BRZ’s). It is the year of the FR-S and it’s no surprise that it won SEMA’s Best of Show in Sport/Compact Class. On a side note, Scion also had the FR-S Tuner Challenge where 3 selected tuners where given the opportunity to customize their Scion with a set budget. By the end of the day, Chris Basseglia’s Minty FReSh won. If you haven’t checked out MaydayGarage’s exclusive coverage of Chris’ car yet, CLICK HERE.
