This year’s show has been absolutely amazing. Concept Cars, great people, a ton of announcements each day. It keeps getting better and better. If you’re at the show or are planning on coming check us out at booth # 21759 on the Racing & Performance Section.
The awards for the hottest vehicles at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show have been announced, and Ford has won in three of the four categories.
The Blue Oval scooped 2015′s Hottest Car for the Mustang, just like in 2014, but this year added to the haul with the Hottest Truck Award for the F-Series Pickup and the Hottest Sport-Compact car for the Ford Focus.
“Winning SEMA’s hottest vehicle awards for Mustang, Focus and F-Series is a great affirmation of the popularity of Ford vehicles with this trendsetting part of the market,” said Dave Pericak, director, Ford Performance, who accepted all of the honors at the annual awards breakfast. “We’re proud the aftermarket has embraced these three vehicles with as much enthusiasm as our customers invest to personalize their Mustang, Focus and F-Series.”
Since its victorious debut at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals, Ford’s Cobra Jet Mustang has represented a legacy of power, performance and triumph. The modern program started with 50 cars for the 2008 model year, continuing with 50-unit limited builds in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014. For 2016, the car is available in Oxford White or Deep Impact Blue, with each color limited to 25 examples.
The Cobra Jet engine is made up of 75 percent production Mustang GT components topped by a front inlet Whipple supercharger; as delivered, it’s capable of eight-second quarter-mile times.
