Custom cars and specialist auto products from the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The following cars represent the most technically advanced available.
The 2012 Audi TT RS could be a brilliant sports car, but the 6-year-old TT generation on which it is based means outdated cabin tech and some inferior tuning.
The Apple iPod Shuffle is an adorable way to take your favorite songs on the go, but sometimes it's too small for its own good.
The Kindle Fire (2012) takes it up a notch in value, but is tethered to the same design oversights of the original.
The 2012 Honda Fit Sport shows the model has aged gracefully, providing handling and performance among the best in its class. The same can't be said for its outdated cabin tech options.
Not much for cabin tech or fuel economy, the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is more show car and weekend racer than everyday driver.
With a host of improvements--faster graphics, 4G wireless options, a better camera, and a gorgeous high-res screen--the latest iPad cements its position at the head of the tablet pack.
Although a bit archaic in its power-train hardware, the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 features modern cabin electronics and full-size sedan comfort.
The 2012 Volkswagen Passat is mostly a very average car, suitable for its segment, but offers a stand-out audio system and exterior styling that sets it apart from the competition.
Cabin tech in the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI may not be cutting-edge, but the Fender audio system sounds excellent. The boring sedan body belies the superior handling and quick-shifting gearbox.
The new Apple AirPort Express Base Station is a decent upgrade to the previous generation, but it doesn't have much beyond its supersleek looks to impress us when compared with its peers.
