Sema's best
9 November 2004

Ford, Chrysler and Corvette all exhibited at last week’s SEMA show in LA. Ford’s publicity machine for its new Mustang continued at SEMA. The company invited 15 tuners to make their mark on the car, which picked up three of the show’s design awards, including most accessory-friendly new vehicle. Ford used the event to cap the Mustang’s 40th anniversary celebrations, with the original Mustang having been launched in 1964.

This 235bhp PT Speedster (below) was one of six Chrysler cars at last week’s SEMA show in LA. Developed by Skunkwerks, a selection of the company’s designers, engineers, marketers and product planners, the drop-top was joined by a supercharged Crossfire Roadster drift car, complete with carbonfibre rear wing.

The all-new Corvette also made an appearance at SEMA under the nameplate Show & Go. A power boost of 25bhp to 425bhp, modified dampers and spring rates and carbonfibre trim mark out the Competition Yellow special edition. GM’s stand contained around 40 production, concept and modified vehicles.
