Most outrageous rides at SEMA 2011

Speed by Spectre

Totally ludicrous and without a doubt the fastest thing at SEMA this year, this streamliner is a one-trick pony. That trick? Be the fastest wheel-driven vehicle on Earth. With an enormous piston engine capable of unleashing close to 2,000 horsepower, combined with incredibly long gearing and a jetlike aerodynamic body, Spectre's Speedliner has cracked the hallowed 400-mph (640 km/h) barrier, leaving the gas-powered beast sitting alone in a field of jet-powered competition. The way this thing stands out is truly remarkable — you simply can't look at this near 12-metre-long missile without a sense of awe.
