Each year at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the Gran Turismo Awards are held to honor some of the best custom vehicles on display – one of which gets immortalized in a Gran Turismo game.
The Awards are responsible for some of the series’ most interesting cars, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette, GT4‘s 1964 Buick Special, and the 1970 Mustang “Trans Cammer”.
This year’s event has just been announced by SCEA, and brings with it a new twist in the form of a “People’s Choice Award”, which will let the public vote on their favorite finalist via the Gran Turismo Facebook page.
The ultimate “Best in Show” winner will be chosen by Kazunori and his staff, to be featured in a Gran Turismo game sometime in the future.
The GT Awards are open to every car on display at SEMA, and applications are now being accepted on the PlayStation website.
The party itself will be held at the HAZE Nightclub at the Aria Hotel & Casino on the evening of November 6, 2013. GTPlanet will be in attendance, providing full coverage of all the announcements. See you there!
