Infiniti Q60 Red Alpha Concept shows us a new range of accessories

After several teasers, we have finally seen Infiniti’s newest creation. Infiniti built the Q60 Red Alpha Concept with the main intention for it to go fast. That is why it has a gutted interior and a huge drag racing parachute attached at the back.

However, during the 2017 SEMA Show, Infiniti announced that there will be a whole range of performance parts specifically for the Red Sport 400 versions of the Infiniti Q50 and Q60.

Thanks to AMS Performance, they developed a number of upgrades for the Red Alpha concept car. Customers can get their hands on most of these starting early next year at Infiniti showrooms.

Paddle boarders have a new aspiration at SEMA – the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse SUP Concept

We all know the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse to be a crossover that can comfortably fit seven to eight people. So it is a good choice for those who like to go on trips away from the city - whether it be the beach or the mountains. Having said that, here is the new Traverse SUP Concept that would be the perfect ride for adventurers. It is a three-row crossover with a beach-inspired livery and amenities that would meet all your paddle boarding and hauling needs.

The Traverse continues to look like its old self, as it did not get a lot of crazy tweaks or a major facelift. Instead, it had been given a new Chevrolet Accessories Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier by Thule, and this includes a paddle board by Riviera Paddlesurf - pretty cool, huh? So this concept is really focused more on the paddle board carrier that can be bought as an attachment. Yes, the good news is that customers will be able to purchase this separately.

What makes this SUP concept unique is the fact that the car’s design matches that of the paddle board. It includes “Blue Wave” bodyside graphics like that of the blue River stand up paddle board. Yellow stripes that run across the belt line act as a contrast, as well as the gloss black bodyside moldings and fog lamp bezels and tinted windows.

Hyundai HyperEconiq Ioniq Concept is headed to 2017 SEMA Show

Fuel efficiency and going the distance may not be among the things that immediately come to mind when one mentions SEMA. But that hasn’t dissuaded Hyundai from what it has already set its mind out to do as we’re learned that the automaker will debut its newest creation dubbed as the HyperEconiq Ioniq Concept at the said show. From the name alone, it’s sure to be based on the Ioniq hybrid.

To make this hybrid version excellent in every possible way, and to squeeze out the maximum number of mpgs from the Ioniq, the Korean automaker had to work together with Canadian firm Bisimoto Engineering. Aside from aerodynamic tweaks, the vehicle received friction reduction modifications as well as mechanical adjustments.

The HyperEconiq Ioniq Concept will take the Ioniq where it has always been expected to go, minus sacrificing its drivability, according to Bisi Ezerioha, president of Bisimoto Engineering. He further says that they have a number of technical elements that not only help bring efficiency, but also raise aerodynamics and design to the highest level.

SEMA: Mazda exhibits much lighter MX-5 Miata Speedster Evolution, MX-5 RF Kuro [Live Photos]

Like many automakers, Mazda North American Operations knows what the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association Show (SEMA) is all about. Held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, the event allows many designers the chance to think out of the box and come up with a number of excellent dream cars. For the 2016 SEMA Show, Mazda will be exhibiting the more ruthless yet lighter MX-5 Miata Speedster Evolution and the MX-5 RF Kuro. The MX-5 RF Kuro in particular is based mainly on the 2017 MX-5 RF retractable fastback and slated to be released early next year to the U.S. market.

It was during the 2015 SEMA Show when Mazda first unveiled the MX-5 Speedster. Compared to the MX-5 soft top on which it was based, it weighed 2,080 lbs., a reduction of 11% or about 150 lbs. After that, the MX-5 Speedster was then taken to the Goodwood Festival of Speed held in U.K., where it underwent the 1.16-mile hill climb. Later the model was brought back to Mazda Design Americas located in Irvine, California, where a team started to look into how to make this version even lighter.

The design team was led by none other than Design Manager Ken Saward, who took out everything beneath the dashboard and made sure to replace all the gauges with a digital display. In addition, the team also removed the Brembo brakes in the front and instead used the calipers and rotors of the MX-5 Sport and Grand Touring, as they were lighter. Furthermore, the standard battery which weighed 25.1 lbs., was replaced with the Braille GreenLite G20 Lithium battery which only weighed 4.5 lbs.

Chevrolet unveiled during the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (2016 SEMA Show) two concepts aimed at displaying just how versatile the Silverado is.
