About this product:
For the sixth year, a panel of top automotive journalists from 15
countries throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa and South America
served on the SEMA Global Media Awards (GMA) panel.
SEMA recognizes that automotive personalization and customization is growing worldwide. Though the appeal of making cars and trucks fit one’s lifestyle has strong roots in the United States, this enthusiast attitude is universal—and growing. SEMA introduced the Global Media Award program in 2004 to highlight the wide appeal to enthusiasts on every continent of specialty-equipment products that are on display at the SEMA Show.
About this product:
To highlight the customization possibilities of the just-released Chevy Cruze in the United Arab Emirates, GM Middle East and SEMA partnered to customize two of the all-new compact global cars. SEMA enlisted two top designers to work on the projects.
Myles Kovacs, founder and publisher of DUB magazine, undertook the design of one of the vehicles, which was customized with a lifestyle theme and nicknamed “The Blackhawk Cruze.” Ryan Friedlinghaus, star of MTV’s original “Pimp My Ride” and known for his West Coast Customs (WCC) brand and popular “Street Customs” show, went all out to create a motorsports-themed version of the vehicle.
