The annual SEMA Show always attracts the best of the best when it comes to vehicle builders, product manufacturers, and media outlets from all over the world, upping the standards of innovative products and builds each and every year. This year’s 2015 show is no different, as we came across amazing build after amazing build and came across a lot of ground-breaking new products, and caught up with industry friends from around the globe. Lucky for you, we shot it all to bring you LIVE exclusive coverage right from the show!

This year is definitely the year of the Audi R8 and the Nissan GT-R in the Slam’d genres, as we saw a number of famed builders showcasing their talents with these two platforms. Whether it’s wild and crazy or more subtle that draws your attention, this year there was a great mix of both among these platforms and more – and yes, we even came across a few custom Prius builds. There are also, of course, a ton of killer C-10 builds, as well as some pretty slick full-custom duallys of the newer variety. With top-notch builds from companies like Air Lift Performance, McGuaghy’s, So-Cal Suspension, Sadistic Iron Werks, Rotiform, KEG Media, Tucci Hot Rods, Delmo’s Speed, Roadster Shop, Max Grundy Design, Kindig It, Rick Dore, and plenty more, it was quite pleasant to cruise through the show and stumbling upon badass build after badass build.
With so many incredible rides, it’s going to be near impossible narrowing down our “Top Picks” from the show, but we’re definitely keeping our eyes out and narrowing it down to bring you some of our favorites. Stay tuned for coverage from Day Two and be sure to check out some of the amazing Slam’d rides we came across today in the gallery below.
