The Ford Mustang won Hottest Car, the Scion FR-S won Hottest Sport Compact honors, the Ford F-Series won Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler won Hottest 4x4 SUV.

The award goes to the vehicle in each segment that aftermarket manufacturers believe is the best platform for customization and offers the latest products.

Numerous examples of each vehicle are on display by tuner shops from around the country including Hennessey's 220-mph Cadillac and this custom Deuce Coupe.

Big-name manufacturers also are keen on SEMA, with brands including Hyundai, Toyota and Subaru bringing modified projects to show off. Chevy brought a Hot Wheels edition Camaro, Kia has a group of DC Comics cars on display and Chrysler brought a whole fleet of vehicles.

Though the SEMA show is closed to the public, it runs through Friday, and we'll continue to bring you updates from the floor.
