The SEMA Show is a heaven of sorts for every single car enthusiasts. Especially us LS fans, as there was no shortage of badass cars for us to feast our eyes on this year. While this list could easily be double or even triple in size, we decided to focus on some of the coolest LS cars that just so happened to halt us in our tracks. Here’s our favorites from SEMA 2016:
Snow Performance‘s C7 Z06
You might recognize this beast, as it has been making a storm over all sorts of social media– because who could walk by this thing without snapping a picture?! Eight nitrous bottles in the back… yes, eight! The nitrous system isn’t fully up-and-running quite yet, but we’re sure when it is, it will be insane.
1961 Oldsmobile F-85
We spotted this Oldsmobile F-85 sitting pretty at the K&N booth. It was built by Greening Auto Company and is sporting a 700 horsepower LS7 Black Label engine from Mast Motorsports. It features a fully-machined aluminum block, Mast LS7 305cc cylinder heads, a Harrop Hurricane ITB manifold, two K&N panel air filters, and Baer brakes. The wheels and paint are beautifully accented by orange lettering and stripes.
Mobil 1/Chevrolet Performance’s Widebody C7
This widebody C7 was spotted sitting at this years’ Mobil 1 booth. It actually is a conversion kit from a company called StanceCraft, adding to the width by 7 inches in the rear and 4 inches in the front when compared to a stock body C7. The kit consists of thirteen body pieces, wheels, tires, and paint. Each conversion is made custom to each vehicle, and this specific one seemed perfect to us. It also has been fitted with an ECS supercharger and a stunning intake manifold from Late Model Engines, allowing it to produce in the neighborhood of 700 horsepower.
Ringbrothers‘ “G-Code” Camaro
The Ringbrothers took this first-gen’s beautiful body lines and accented them with billet products, hand-layed carbon fiber, and an outstanding paint job. Much like the tasteful exterior, under the hood is a beautiful Whipple-supercharged, 416 ci Wegner LS3 pushing around 1,000 horsepower. Don’t let its looks fool you, as this beauty features a full aftermarket suspension setup, custom headers, a Flowmaster exhaust, and 15/14-inch rotors from Baer Brakes.
Ironworks Speed & Kustom ’57 Chevy
Whipple‘s brand new 4.5-liter front-feed twin screw supercharger was showcased on this fully-custom ’57 Chevy built by Ironworks out of Bakersfield, California. With the brand new blower feeding a completely forged 427 ci LS–that started life as an LS9–it pushes a whopping 1,200 horsepower. Other than this ’57’s crazy amount of power, this entire build is just spectacular– from the gorgeous paint job and flashy interior to the perfectly executed red accents and carbon fiber details found throughout.
We’ve been following the V12LS.com project for quite a while now and, finally, the highly anticipated motor debuted at SEMA in a 1967 Camaro by Quality Custom Rides. The Camaro, though not fully complete, looked great. The engine had a few tweaks since we last heard and, the creators Shane and Matt, received this years’ SEMA award for the “Best Engineered New Product”. Well deserved– in our opinion.
