SEMA 2014 Las Vegas Gran Turismo Awards Best Asian Import Garrett GReddy Nissan GTR

GRAN TURISMO AWARDS
ARGUABLY THE BEST PARTY OF THE WEEK, industry magnates touched down at Drai’s Nightclub for an evening of awards and killer music, courtesy of punk-rock legends Social Distortion. Celeb sightings from the PASMAG crew included Kei Muira, Porsche driver Patrick Long testing the simulator, Kenny Tran, Fredric Aasbo, and Danny George, who we ran into earlier that day to discuss some exciting 2015 plans. Sitting at the GoPro booth throughout the week, the “Rampage” Camaro (pictured, above) built by Roadster Shop took the GT Award for Best in Show, and after seeing it up close, it’s obvious why. It has the perfect amount of old school flare, sports car looks, and modern widebody elements that make it easy on the eyes. Underneath, the 750 horses push from the LS7 motor through a sideways-mounted transmission(!)
because the car sits so low, and everything is built for a full-on track assault. We can’t wait to give this a test in the virtual world.

SEMA 2010: Las Vegas, NV

Once again, PASMAG hit the concrete to bring you the very best of the performance aftermarket at a little show out in the desert we call SEMA. The 2010 SEMA show was reported to be up over last year with more 11% exhibitors and judging by the jam packed show halls, the traffic was on par with years past. At peak hours it was difficult to move through the packed aisles and some of the hottest SEMA cars were mobbed with on-lookers.
