This customizations to this 2016 Honda HR-V make it nearly unrecognizable. The razzle-dazzle pink paint by Axalta renders it inescapable.

20-inch Rotiform CBU wheels feature gold faces, red center caps, and pink spiked lug covers. Love it or hate it, everyone's eyes were on this HR-V.

Nearby was another HR-V that was milder in appearance, but just featured even more insane performance.

Buddy Club wheels shod with Toyo Proxes tires are the first indication that performance is this crossover's primary action item. Buddy Club also provides the coilover suspension.

The HR-V's horsepower goal was 230 ponies, which is fairly mild for Bisimoto Engineering, which had a 700-plus horsepower Hyundai Tucson on display in the next booth over.

SEMA 2015 is also our first peek at the upcoming Honda Ridgeline pickup truck through the veil of this Baja race version.

The new model ditches its trademark flying buttress design (and Pizza Hut logo-like profile) for a more traditional, upright cab-to-bed transition.

The racer Ridgeline will be accompanied at events by this 2016 Honda Pilot Baja chase vehicle.

The Pilot is basically stock; its 280 horsepower V-6 and 9-speed transmission are untouched.

Auxiliary lighting, race communications radios and Vendetta Motorsports tube bumpers at front and rear elevate the Pilot from grocery getter to chase vehicle.

18-inch KMC wheels and General Tire Grabber A/T rubber grip the ground when the asphalt ends.

A Honda Pioneer 1000 accompanies the Pilot chase and Ridgeline race trucks. The ATV has been outfitted to match the Pilot with KMC wheels, General Tire Grabbers, and a Fox coilover suspension.

At the other end of the motorsports spectrum is the 2015 Graham Rahal Dahalla Honda IndyCar.
