SEMA 2011: The best that matte has to offer

Automotive columnist: , Updated:

The 2011 edition of the SEMA show, a one-of-a-kind event of monstrous proportions, is already drawing to an end. And this year visitors were again treated to a highly colourful spectacle.

Speaking of colour, we noticed that automakers have a marked penchant for matte paint jobs. The trend is literally sweeping through the tuning world, and it really adds some extra oomph to already unique vehicles. put together a gallery of some of the most eye-catching and proudly matte machines of the show. These German, Japanese, Korean, and American machines will seduce you with their own special brand of elegance in glorious matte paint jobs.
