SEMA Trends: Bri­tish Beef

Fast Car - - Over There -

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.
