Herald Sun - Motoring - - SEMA 2010 -

THE Aus­tralian in­flu­ence at SEMA ex­tended to shar­ing ac­co­lades for the “hottest car” at the show. The Chevro­let Ca­maro — de­signed by GM Holden, but not sold here – was deemed by the 1900 ex­hibitors to be the stand­out ve­hi­cle at the af­ter­mar­ket au­to­mo­tive dis­play, while the Ford F-Se­ries and Jeep Wranger were judged “hottest truck” and “hottest 4x4/SUV” re­spec­tively. For­mer Holden boss Alan Batey (above left), now with Chevro­let, ac­cepted the award. All three ve­hi­cles are icons of the US mo­tor­ing land­scape, which con­trib­uted to their SEMA vic­to­ries. “ With more ex­hibitors show­cas­ing their new prod­ucts and styling trends on the Chevro­let Ca­maro, Ford F-Se­ries and Jeep Wran­gler, the SEMA award win­ners are ve­hi­cles that con­sumers can con­fi­dently turn to for un­lim­ited pos­si­bil­i­ties in per­son­al­i­sa­tion,” SEMA spokesman Peter MacGil­livray says.
