For car modders and customisation nuts, the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas is like Christmas come early.

The annual event represents the $41.2 billion (£31.35 billion) automotive aftermarket and it is the only trade show that brings together every segment of the car industry, from hot rods and off-roads, to mobile electronics and collision repair.

More than 2,400 companies from all over the world exhibit here, making the SEMA Show unquestionably the best place to show off the hottest and newest automotive products.

At the SEMA Show, very few cars look as ‘off-the-shelf’ as this Ford Focus RS, but with a series of performance upgrades, including FullRace intercooler, piping and intake and Ford Performance exhaust, this hot hatch still makes a statement.

Pennzoil Focus RS

Its wheels, tyres, brakes and suspension have all been upgraded for increased feedback and sharper steering response.

You or I would call that colour ‘yellow’, but Ford says its exterior is covered in Pennzoil yellow Axalta paint. If you say so…

While we’re in this section of the colour palette, here’s another yellow beast. The Bugatti Veyron may have been surpassed by the Chiron in virtually every aspect, but it remains a visual treat and especially so in this Oakley Design bumblebee-esque colour scheme.

This Lexus LS 500 was another very ‘off-the-shelf’ attendee at the SEMA Show, but just look at those DRLs. Lovely.

Sick of traffic during your commute? This could be the congestion-buster you’ve been looking for.

We’re not sure, but there’s reason to suspect this Audi TT was sent back from the future to destroy the leader of the human resistance John Connor.

We’ve already spoken about the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo concept at length here, but here it is again in different livery.

The new Honda Civic Type R looked slightly angelic in this very white get-up.

Same goes for this Roller.

SEMA Rolls Royce white

Decals on this Rolls though? Ew, no.

The Land Rover Defender may be a very British product but the Yanks have made it even more of an all-conquering beast here.

Did someone supersize the Monopoly car?

Come the apocalypse, this is what you’d want on your driveway.
