Supercars and attainable performance during day one of SEMA 2012

If I were a betting man, I’d wager that the SEMA Show in Las Vegas is easily the largest aftermarket car show in the world. Hundreds of customized cars (dinged up daily drivers, glossy show cars, battle scarred race cars, and bench racing dyno queens) crowd the Las Vegas Convention Center every year. It’s nearly impossible to see it all, but that doesn’t stop us from trying. So after filling up an SD card with snapshots, we’ve sorted out the best of day one for your enjoyment.

The Camaros, Corvettes, Sparks, and Sonics that populated Chevrolet’s booth may look extreme, but a closer look at their upgrades list shows a plethora of parts that you can order from your local Chevy dealer. This year’s concepts could be in your garage by this time next year. And if you’re feeling impatient, you can always just buy one of two new production Camaros that debuted as concepts as early as last year.
