The trend of painting cars matte-black seems to have some staying power, as is obvious by touring the SEMA Show this year. We honestly thought it might have petered out by now, but even we can’t resist how menacing a matte-black paint job makes almost any vehicle look.
Now because this is SEMA, matte black cars range from this SUV above (is that an Equinox?) to a Jaguar XJ220, to everything else in between. We’ve spied a long list of matte-black models including a Hamann-equipped Mercedes G Wagon, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, and even an old BMW 5 Series wagon. We’ll be sure to update our gallery as we track down more of the matte-black cars. Until then, check out the collection so far in the gallery below.
GALLERY: Matte Black Cars of the 2010 SEMA Show
UPDATE: We’ve decided to use our editorial license and broadly expand the definition of the word “black” meaning that our matte-black gallery is likely to include a lot of shades, from gray to brown to bronze.
