Automotion Customs Wins PRO Cup Challenge

Automotion Customs Inc., an automotive restyling shop in Warner Robins, Ga., won the third SEMA Professional Restylers Organization PRO Cup Challenge, the organization announced.

Automotion Customs won the award for creating an accessory package for the 2022 Toyota Rav4 XLE, which was designed to be easy to replicate and ideal for new-car dealers to add mass consumer appeal to their inventory.

The competition, which takes place at the SEMA Show, pits restyler against restyler to create a package for a new-model car or truck that would take less than 40 hours to execute and costs no more than $12,500 to the dealer. Packages are judged on their mass appeal, ease to replicate, and potential profitability, the organization said.

Through the competition, accessory manufacturers see how their products can be packaged with other products, restylers get ideas to take back to their local markets, and SEMA Showgoers witness how new vehicles can be transformed.

The 2022 Toyota Rav4 XLE features:

  • Custom Leader (includes door panels), Katzkin Leather
  • Satin Roof Wrap and Chrome Delete, Swirl X
  • 2-inch Lift Kit, Ready Lift
  • 20-inch Wheels, XO Luxury

“Automotion Customs created a unique accessory package that is not only stylish and affordable for dealerships but showcases the many possibilities that consumers have when choosing to accessorize their new-model cars and trucks,” said PRO Chair Josh Poulson. “We are proud of Automotion Customs for their win and are confident that this package will create profitable business relationships among restylers and new-car dealerships nationwide.”
