As official sponsor of SEMA 2009, expect to see plenty of Ford products. The Blue Oval will be bringing customized versions of every vehicle in its lineup, from the Ford F-150 to the Focus, Edge, and Flex. Ford is making a big push to show just how customizable their vehicles are, with eight custom Mustangs on display. But Ford has other performers as well. There will be plenty of Taurus SHOs to gawk over, and Ford was kind enough to give us a preview of these exciting sedans too.

2010 Taurus SHO by Mobsteel

Mobsteel builds cars for mobsters, or at least wannabes. They got their hands on a Taurus SHO and turned it into the darkest, angriest Taurus ever conceived. This is the car Robocop should have had at his disposal. Massive 22-inch two-piece forged wheels and Air Runner struts form the basis for this slammed beast. A Magnaflow exhaust and JL Audio system give it sufficient pop and a few extra ponies. I think a better name may have been “Satan’s Sled.”

2010 Taurus SHO by MRT Direct

The MRT Direct SHO takes a more subtle course than the Mobsteel. With a vented hood and cherry-black roof, MRT lets the car speak for itself through an exhaust system upgrade. The suspension and wheels have been kicked up a notch, and the turbocharger system has been improved to increase power. Designed for comfort as well as speed, the “Best of SHO” will be hard to beat.

Ford is also bringing a bevy of turbocharged Fusions, Lincolns, trucks, and even a 500 horsepower Focus to the show, so keep an eye on PowerTV for day-by-day coverage.
