The Chevrolet Camaro has been judged the Hottest Car at this year's SEMA Show, the biggest event of the year for true pistonheads.

The Chevrolet Camaro was given the inaugural SEMA Award at the Las Vegas show on November 2, with judges deeming it the most accessory-friendly model after calculating the vehicle's prevalence in booths at the automotive equipment event.

It beat a host of other challengers on show, including the Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang and Subaru Impreza, along with other commonly-seen vehicles such as the Kia Soul and Ford Fiesta.

The Ford F-Series won Hottest Truck and the Jeep Wrangler took Hottest 4x4-SUV, as both were judged to be the most influential vehicles in their categories.

"A booth space is a ballot, and the models these exhibitors have selected represent their vote," said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO.

Although the SEMA Show isn't open to the public, it's a place where automakers and auto accessory companies can show off their latest products to the trade before they hit showrooms or shelves.

Over 1,900 companies are exhibiting at this year's event, which runs November 2 - 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
