SEMA Trends: British Beef
You expect plenty of Yank tanks at SEMA. You expect Japanese imports, trucks and supercars. And over the past few seasons, German motors have proved to be some of the most popular too. So, what surprised us this time around was the abundance of home-grown Brit models, some being cars that they never actually got in the US in the first place!
It’s not just the high-end Jags, McLarens, Bentleys and Rollers that got a lot of love at the show either. There were plenty of ‘proper’ British classics popping up, including quite a few oldskool MGs and even a Mk1 Escort. Of course, our American chums couldn’t resist slapping a V8 into the odd one or two (just check out RM Motorsports Roush Coyote-powered MGB GT here). But that’s just their way. It still makes you proud to be British.
