GT Awards 2015 Announced, Winner Coming to “Gran Turismo for PlayStation 4”

Gran Turismo Awards

It’s that time of year again! The 13th annual Gran Turismo Awards have become a special tradition at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and the details for this year’s competition have just been announced by Sony.

Here’s how it works: eligible SEMA exhibitors submit their car for the competition, where Sony’s judges select winners in five categories: “Hot Rod”, “SUV”, “European”, “Domestic”, and “Asian”.


Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi then tours the SEMA show floor to personally inspect each car and meet the tuners who built it. After selecting a favorite, Kazunori announces the “Best in Show” winner at a massive party in one of Las Vegas’ premiere nightclubs, and that car will be featured in the next GT game.

The winner will be announced at the GT Awards party on Wednesday, November 4th at The Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Nightclub, 8:00pm-2:00am.

As always, GTPlanet will be attending to provide full coverage of all the announcements and festivities.

It’s also worth noting the official rules for this year’s contest make an interesting distinction, specifically stating the winning car will be digitized for “a future release of Gran Turismo for the PlayStation 4 system”. Although we have known that Gran Turismo is coming to the PS4 for some time now, this is the first official confirmation of the game’s existence by SCEA.

    Nice. Let’s hope we have a winner from the European category this year. Not that I’m against the other regions, but it’s been a while since we had a winner from that category.

    I just think it’s sad that this news has only received 6 replies. :(
    It ain’t much, granted……but at least someone from Sony has mentioned GT in relation to PS4.
    Moved on is what I’ve already done, PS4 is running sweet with plenty of other games, but I will still hold out for some intense reviews of the next GT…..If it can prove its worth, it may be an addition at a much later date…..

      GT7 existing isn’t news, we all know it’s coming. With cars from SEMA now 2 and 3 years old not yet in the game, that’s not much news either.

      you’re right. by the time GT7 does finally get online for the masses, the PS6 VR curved sleeve edition should be the equivalent in technology to be found in Walmart for 29.97 by then.

      Found this in a November 2014 News Article:

      “Last year’s winner, a custom ’67 Chevy Nova, and the 2012 winner, David Eckert’s Ford Mach 40, have yet to arrive, though GTPlanet has learned both cars have been digitally scanned and will be released in due time.”

      Obviously doesn’t say it’ll be released in GT6, but considering the cars are 2 and 3 years old, seems kind of silly to have to wait until 2016 or later to get them.

    And in other news tomorrow the sun will rise in the east and set in the west….

    In the nearly 12 years that have past since GT4 launched, PD have released GT5 and a significant update to GT5 (called GT6). I’m not holding my breath and definitely don’t see any pre-order happening this time around (whenever that is).
