Underneath the glitz and glamour of the of Las Vegas neon lights, is the SEMA show, which brings with it its own brand of style and grace. Industry insiders from every corner of the globe gather in the Nevada desert to be among the first to witness the latest in automotive innovation in its purest form.

From big baller exotics to heavily fabricated fullsize and mini pickups, with a little bit of everything between and outside of that realm, SEMA becomes a world of its own for a week. But aside from the thousands of rides parked outdoors, and inside the Las Vegas Convention Center, there are just as many domestic and foreign companies displaying the latest wares on the horizon for 2013. The experience is as overwhelming as it sounds.

Even though the doors to the exhibition halls aren't open to the public, the outer display area is fair game, which isn't a bad deal. Even that little slice of the show is enough to blow a few minds.

Stay tuned as we will be delivering a closer look at a few of the debuting minis from SEMA 2012 over the next year. See you next year, Sin City!
