There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.

Lamborghini has officially pulled the cover off its Huracán Super Trofeo race car.
The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is the Italian automaker’s newest GT3-specification race car that features an enhanced version of the production model’s 5.2-liter V10 engine. Though it only has 9 hp more than the standard model bringing the total to 611 hp, the Huracán Super Trofeo is 550 lbs lighter through the use of carbon fiber and aluminum.
One major difference between the race car and the production car is that the Super Trofeo is rear-wheel drive while the standard Huracán is an all-wheel drive model, as was the previous Gallardo-based race car. Naturally this brings up the idea that Lamborghini could be preparing a rear-wheel drive version of the Huracán road car.
As for the Super Trofeo variant, it was co-developed by Dallara Engineering and will be showcased at the Quail Motorsports gathering during the Pebble Beach Automotive Week.
“The Huracán Super Trofeo is an all-new car built from scratch with a clear racing concept. We believe it will be as fun for fans to watch as it will be rewarding for our racers to drive,” said Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s research and development boss.
