    Great car! I can't wait for it to show up to Gran Turismo. I have a feeling it might show up in the next few content updates after the 2014 SEMA winner GoPro Camaro is hopefully included.

    Also this:

    That Lincoln Y-Block sounds so good!

    I hope this "Piece of Gran Turismo history" isn't for sale as a result of a murder-suicide.

    Why does it take years for the winning cars to show up in the game? Whats the point of the award if it never makes the game?

    I presume it's for sale because Bruce Leven lost his bout with cancer. Going by Instagram, Wicked Fabrications has had the car since Leven died.

    Bu'wicked. Won the GT Award at SEMA in 2003, appeared in GT4, owners Ted and Sue Richardson died in 2010 when Ted killed Sue and then himself, seemingly during an acrimonious divorce.

    It's a reference to the title of the thread a couple of years ago about the 2003 GT award winner going up for auction, which found itself in need of a new owner after the original one shot his wife and then himself.
