Detroit Speed, Inc. – 2012 SEMA Show Wrap Up

Mooresville, NC – With the 2011 SEMA show being such a historic show for Detroit Speedyou would think it would be nearly impossible to top. Detroit Speed did just that only one year after that memorable show with a terrific 2012 show.

The 2012 SEMA show started with a bang with three Detroit Speed Test Cars, the 1969 Camaro Test Car, the 1970 Camaro Test Car and the 1966 Mustang Test Carin the OUSCI car corral awaiting their shot at the OUSCI crown that was to be held the day after the SEMA show. Detroit Speed also had their new Mustang products on display including the new Mustang Aluma-Frame Front Suspension that was up for a new product award. Although the Aluma-Frame didn’t win, it was a huge honor to be recognized as the Runner-Up for the Best New Engineered products coming in behind Mastershift and their Paddle Shifter that works with a T-56 transmission.

Detroit Speed also had their stamp on many cars that were on the show floor including Mark Stielow’s 1967 Detroit Speed “Equipped” Camaro, Jet-Hot’s Detroit Speed Built 1965 Chevy II “Surf Wagon” and the much anticipated Detroit Speed Built “Rowdy” Camry that was waiting for the announcement of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge winner at the Toyota booth.
