Each year Pepper heads to Las Vegas for the infamous SEMA Show convention, and each year, he comes back with something that drops jaws in the photography industry. Take a look at this photo he just conjured up, in the most literal sense of the phrase, and released to the world just yesterday. As he so eloquently states, "A proper way to end SEMA! Liberty Walk owner Kato ghost riding his whip down the strip".
The Lamborghini Aventador has many unique features—700 horses, AWD, 2.9-seconds to 60—but its flame-spitting exhaust is one of the best. A $400,000 buy-in makes for one really expensive flamethrower, but that’s the price you pay to be the undisputed IRL and YouTube crowd favorite of supercars.
There may have been more GT-Rs than hookers in Vegas during the week of SEMA. For those of you who have never been propositioned on the Strip, that’s a lot. Now, R35 Godzillas have been making SEMA their stomping grounds since around 2010—but the sheer number of these Japanese supercars at the 2014 show has 'em all beat.
Liberty Walk has gotten a lot of love on this site lately, and its insanely wide and low project cars are a big reason why. But while it's always great to see Wataru Kato and crew's latest big-fender creations, most of the time, we only catch 'em sitting pretty next to stick-like trade show models.
ARMYTRIX recently shared a video that's about as far away from those digital baby steps as possible. (As an aside, their website is insanely good: the intro vid is of a stanced-out Aventador spitting fire through its valvetronic exhaust, then screaming off toward SEMA. I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me.)
