Your Car in Gran Turismo 5: GT Awards 2010 Call for Entries

October 24th, 2010 by Jordan Greer

The 2010 GT Awards are right around the corner, and Sony is taking applications from all SEMA attendees who want a shot at getting their car featured in Gran Turismo 5.

Kazunori Yamauchi himself will walk the show floor and personally inspects each entrant, choosing his favorite vehicle in five different categories: “Hot Rod”, “SUV”, “European”, “Domestic”, and “Asian”. These finalists are brought to the GT Awards party, where the winner will be announced and eventually included in a “future” GT game. This year, though, the official rules specifically state the winning car will be made available in Gran Turismo 5 (presumably via download), so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to give it a spin.

The awards have brought some interesting and unique cars to the series, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette and GT4‘s 1964 Buick Special. Check out the video below to see what happened last year:

SEMA 2010 kicks off November 2, and the GT Awards will be held the evening of November 3. Good luck to all participants, and thanks to Alex for sending this in!

    ^^ owned.
    Also, I hope it’s something nice (or respectable) unlike the last winner’s car.

  2. Oct. 25, 3:38pm

    So who thinks sony will keep their word about telling everyone when the release date is by ‘late october’? Not me.

  3. Oct. 25, 2:08pm

    Dear people who can’t read…..The game was done over 3 weeks ago. This has nothing to do with finishing the game. Kaz has already said it was done. They were only 3 days late on their deadline. The reason for the big delay was blu-ray manufacturing and the fact that the 3 days they missed meant they had to give up their manufacturing time slot at the factory. They have all the time in the world to do whatever they want now. Chances are these cars will be DLC or in GT6. Also, chances are that Kaz and the rest of Polyphony are on a much needed vacation.

    i need that GT T-SHIRT! XD …they sell it?

  5. Oct. 25, 2:53am

    this is pissing me off I am deaf and NO subtitles? 1 million hearing people and one deaf who’s die hardcore fan of GT series? damnit. i hate to watch without closed caption. I need a little support here please? thank you.

  6. Oct. 25, 12:25am

    On amazon, bestbuy, etc. it says that the release dat is December 31 2010…


  7. Oct. 24, 8:36pm

    Oh god, there is that scion with the front spoiler again… =.=

    • Oct. 24, 9:11pm

      Prolly the ugliest car at the show.

  8. Oct. 24, 8:17pm

    It has been said Forza 4 looks better? I mean when I checked all the videos myself it was obvious it fell short

  9. Oct. 24, 7:52pm

    hey! at the end of that vid she said gran turismo 6. That mustang wont be in GT6 or did she screw up?

  10. Oct. 24, 7:36pm

    this is random and nobody probably cares or will read this,but im thinking we are getting a release date soon,my buddy at THESOURCE here in Canada said they just listed gt5 online today and apparently they only put the listing up if its within a week of when they can start taking preorders:)might be BS but whatever

  11. Oct. 24, 6:38pm

    Who cares about this

    “These finalists are brought to the GT Awards party, where the winner will be announced and eventually included in a “future” GT game”

    We got GT5 to worry bout. Forget this bs.

  12. Oct. 24, 4:19pm

    what about the ariel atom,i’d love to give that car a go.

    • Oct. 25, 1:38am

      Me too.

  13. Oct. 24, 4:03pm

    I’d submit my rusty 1987 Ford Ranger XLT just to see their flabbergasted faces haha

    Any time you build up a car to be used in a Gran Turismo game, that is a tremendous accomplishment. You get your car basically immortalized in perhaps the best racing game franchise of the modern era. Just as long as your car isn’t a beat-up Ford Probe GT with the side mirrors duct taped up and a “Princess” bumper sticker with butterflies on the rear bumper, ANY car can be immortalized. :)

    In all seriousness, good luck to whomever takes part in this year’s GT Awards.

  15. Oct. 24, 2:56pm

    I JUST WANT MY F****** GAME….
    been waiting too long and I don’t give a crap if I get to drive some old mans Mustang

  16. Oct. 24, 2:19pm

    I want the Spyker C8 Aileron

  17. Oct. 24, 12:50pm

    I hope GT5 gets delayed again.

  18. Oct. 24, 12:16pm

    Any odds on Forza 5 coming out before GT5?

    • Oct. 24, 9:19pm

      If that happens I will literally sell my PS3 & buy an xbox & forever boycott Sony. If Sony wasn’t such a bunch of pricks we would be getting the game in 9 days.

  19. Oct. 24, 11:59am

    It is said, Forza 4 will have better graphics than GT4!
    No joke

    • Oct. 24, 9:58pm

      Well it ought to have better graphics than GT4, considering GT4 was on PS2 lol.

      TBH Forza hasn’t really been very good in the graphics department

  20. Oct. 24, 11:52am

    Did someone just say DLC for GT5? Then I want updated NASCAR paint schemes. And if we get DLC, then they need to get us a full 16 cal field, instead of using repeat numbers in the field. If the full game comes out without a full 16 car field, I will be royally mad. If it comes out without 16 cars and no DLC in the future, I’ll be royally pissed! If for nothing else, NASCAR needs DLC for this game, cause everything changes in the next 5 years that we wait for GT6. Harvick has a new Bud scheme. But I guess we STILL cant see that one in a game huh? Damn Clinton. Tony Stewart is now Mobil 1. And it looks like the front splitter is gone after this year, with a more durable front end now seen on the Nationwide cars. Look at the diecast cars for next years cars as proof of this change. By the time we get the game, the cars will be obsolete again, even after they changed the wing to the spoiler in the game to prevent that happening. Thank NASCAR who cant seem to have two years of the same car and rules back to back for I dont know how long now.

    • Oct. 24, 11:56am

      Oh, and its sad that Im not eagerly awaiting Halloween. Not because Im a little kid about to score candy, its because Sony promised a new release date by then for us to get excited about, only to be disappointed again. Im not as depressed when I have a fake date to think about, but I hate LIMBO, not even knowing when its coming out.

    • Oct. 24, 11:59am

      Correction: I AM eagerly awaiting Halloween

    • Oct. 24, 5:58pm

      dude seriously, NOBODY CARES ABOUT NASCAR LIVERIES!!!! they’re not gonna spend time doing something so retarded. It’s friggin paint & vynil you bonehead. STOP WHINING. You’re lucky enough NASCARS are even in a game that has always been composed mostly of tracks with right & left turns. Most GT fans don’t actually watch NASCAR as much as you do so be happy that you’ve already got more than you deserve you turd.

    • Oct. 24, 7:56pm

      Last words by the great HugoStiglitz_420

      “that’s the point asshole”
      “lighten up douchebag”
      “you friggin moron”
      “you people are retarded”
      “you bonehead”
      “you turd”

      Continue like that. Great job!

    • Oct. 24, 9:24pm

      lighten up douchebag. How can you seriously defend someone who’s whining about 1 NASCAR livery not being updated & only having 12 NASCARS confirmed instead of 16? this website is filled with people complaining, sometimes about really stupid things & your support of insignificant complaints is duly noted. Basically, you’re a complete wuss & a moron

    • Oct. 24, 11:40pm

      Im not defending anyone.
      Im just showing how much you are just a rude and impolite juvenile.

    • Oct. 25, 1:40am

      oh so having to write ( sarcasm ) at the end of a comment is something a mature person does? you’re just a wuss. Instead of discussing what I said you critisized how I said it. Only a really pathetic person pretends that using words or swears is immature. You swear once in a while & it makes you no better or worse because they’re words everyone uses. They’re just words that describe something. Critisize the statement not the vocabulary. You’re just stuck up & convinced by society that it’s bad when you should really think for yourself for once. You’re just a mindless sheep in a lame existence & people like you are ruining the forums on this site.

    • Oct. 25, 1:59am

      GT2 is what got me into nascar. (Raceing modified ford taurus) GT3 had me researching the f1 cars from the 80’s and 90’s. GT HAS TO HAVE EVERY CAR! EVER! At least every car to win(any race) it is the only way for me to learn about them…then try to compare my skils to the heros who drove them. i think Kaz might understand what i mean, he keeps opening my eyes to new awesome cars and races…

    • Oct. 25, 12:31pm

      I agree & I am happy about NASCARS being in the game but so should NASCAR fans especially. Instead this one is complaining when he should be happy

  21. Oct. 24, 11:47am

    So wait, let me get this straight. The game was scheduled for release on the same day that they are now going to pick a new car to make premium in GT5? So…wait…really?

    I don’t think Sony gives a damn about anybody except themselves. Don’t promise us a god damn thing anymore when it comes to GT. I’m sick of being treated like a freaking mouse trying to chase cheese on a string or something. It’s enough already. Give me the cheese your abusive jerks.

    is it, oh that will be nice for the xbox owners… but I’m going to be way to busy playing GT5 to care! haha

  23. Oct. 24, 10:41am

    wow um your stupid. Camaro isn’t European it’s American lol.

    • Oct. 24, 10:55am

      There is no facepalm big enough to truely cover Icemanzidanes comment…

  24. Oct. 24, 10:37am

    Grrrrrrrrr! Kaz why don’t you just stay home and work on the game!!!???

  25. Oct. 24, 9:50am

    Burt Reynolds…


    Time to Drive the Trans-Am to the show!

  26. Oct. 24, 9:22am

    It would be helpful if we could actually be able to play the cars in the game. Its obvious what this was, A Marketing scheme. All the other Game manufacturers manage to get their games out on time. Its funny how PD and Sony just carry on with their various shows and marketing and TBH it doesnt really look like they are that bothered about getting this game out to the fans who have stayed loyal to them for many years. It really annoys me whenever they do these Marketing shows and go on about the ‘Future of gaming’, Sure its going to be a great game and Sure they spent along time engineering it into marvel but what happened to the ‘future of customer service’. I put £40 down a couple of years ago and the only reason i bought a PS3 on release date, is for GT5, there taking the P.
    Anyway, the new concept Lotus series should be good a good contestant for the future.

  27. Oct. 24, 9:18am

    Oh my gosh.. on the very day they were going to release GT5 they’re now going to be walking around at a car show looking for another car to add to the game. I’d beg for a new release date but it almost seems pointless now! >_<

  28. Oct. 24, 9:08am

    Only one thing to say…release the damn game already!

  29. Oct. 24, 8:33am

    i want my copie of gt5 please this year or i am going to kill my self

    • Oct. 24, 9:33am

      Here’s the number, you’ll need it at the rate PD is going
      That’s for NSPL, also known as National Suicide Prevention Hotline.

    • Oct. 24, 12:05pm

      Hold it! At least wait what happens until Jan 1st

  30. Oct. 24, 7:54am

    I WANT THAT LAMBO!!!! But the Ford Mustang is also great. ;)

    • Oct. 24, 10:53am

      Agreed, cant wait to play the Mustang Trans-cammer

  31. Oct. 24, 7:46am

    I want the E30 M3 and the Opel Manta. I’m confident though that they’ll include the M3 right from the start this time. It would be stupid not to. Erm.

  32. Oct. 24, 6:29am

    Her last words was, that this mustang is coming to GT6? Last 20 sec of the movie.

    • Oct. 24, 11:32am

      I think she said “coming out on gran turismo soon”

  33. Oct. 24, 5:56am

    Is it just me but i find that dyke woman strangely attractive :S

  34. Oct. 24, 5:40am

    HEYoo guys! What if it was a Porsche ? Like that RUF 911 Targa ?? It may catches their eye, wouldn’t it ?

    • Oct. 24, 6:21am

      A RUF isn’t a Porsche, nor would it be a problem. RUF has been in the game before.

  35. Oct. 24, 5:37am

    Interesting stuff… should be interesting driving the modded cars on GT5… They were fun in GT4 too… on a side note, I stumbled onto this on youtube… I’m sure most of you have seen it, but I can’t remember this being posted here, so here’s the link!…

  36. Oct. 24, 5:28am
    ya momma

    HAHAHA, one car from each group – SUV – Hot Rod – European – Domestic – Asian… I bet £100 the ”Asian” car wins. This is not really a competition.

    • Oct. 24, 6:10am

      Last year the car that won wasnt asian….

    • Oct. 24, 9:30am

      I’m hoping for a European exotic car, and one that’s not a lunch box of any kind. Would be intresting to see any other SUV into the game, I’m hoping a Cayeene or a Hennessey Cherokee SRT-8.

    • Oct. 24, 3:42pm

      Agreed FlareKR.I would love the Hennesy Cherokee Srt-8 or add Hennesy in the game like Blitz and GT was in gt5p

    • Oct. 24, 5:52pm

      If anything, there usually boring American muscle cars. I like them but out of the choices I saw, I wouldn’t have picked them. I’d love to see Hennessey cars make it in.

  37. Oct. 24, 5:15am

    i hope it will be a european car
    camaro omg
    in USA are cars(old) which have a top speed from 180kmh but they use 15-20l fuel /100km
    awesome technology lol

    • Oct. 24, 10:43am

      Dude wow Camaro is american not European you idiot

    • Oct. 24, 3:48pm

      @ BubbleBelly542
      Dude,wow, he was saying that he hopes the next SEMA winner would be a European car you idiot.

    • Oct. 24, 4:59pm

      1.viejaloca ,thx guy you have understand me
      2.BubbleBelly542 , yes guy start talking without thinking about it lol
      iam a idiot ? you are the biggest idiot

  38. Oct. 24, 4:28am

    I didnt realise DLC was a definite. I thought all this “GT5 will be released as a full game” was referring to a lack of DLC. Im quite happy about this, because if there are any cars that arnt in, theres always that glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel. I need that as a fan of Australian cars.

    • Oct. 24, 6:44am

      I guess the ‘full game’ stuff means GT5 won’t handle things the same way Forza did and a few other games do these days, where there’s content on the disc that you have to pay extra to use; Forza had 5 ‘VIP’ cars (800 in monopoly money, what’s that, like £7 for 5 cars?), Resident Evil 5 had Versus mode all along but you had to buy it separately, god knows why…

      Hopefully this means GT5 will use a more ethical DLC model where you pay (if at all, and I can’t imagine Sony, the ones who would be pricing the DLC, would pass up the opportunity to get a little more money from the millions of GT5 players) for actual new content. Of course, if they release a premium GT-R pack with a load of re-skinned R32, 33, 34 and 35 GT-Rs, I’ll eat my own hat.

    • Oct. 26, 2:43pm

      There could be a loophole in Sony getting to price DLC.
      If they release the cars in a mandatory patch(like with GT5P) then Sony can’t charge for it.

  39. Oct. 24, 3:15am

    Hope Kaz likes the 1000hp Cult Dodge Challenger!

  40. Oct. 24, 2:10am

    dlc…or else we revolt haha

    • Oct. 24, 2:53am

      Lucy and Ethel say to Ricky and Fred “We’re revolting!” Fred replies “Not anymore than usual.” A classic Fred Mertz put-down.

      Within the week, we have the faint promise from a Sony EU marketing guy that we’ll have a release date by the end of October. I haven’t seen any mention of a “date for a date” on Sony’s site. Do we really think we’ll have the release date (or next “projected date”) before the end of October?
      @rydeen…her voice didn’t annoy me…of course I’ve never complained about the engine sounds from GT games either so I may not be the best to judge :).

    • Oct. 26, 2:41pm

      “Lucy and Ethel say to Ricky and Fred “We’re revolting!” Fred replies “Not anymore than usual.” A classic Fred Mertz put-down.”
      That made me laugh allot more than I think it should have.

  41. Oct. 24, 1:41am

    Awesome article. Thanks again for running this and giving me props for it.

  42. Oct. 24, 1:35am

    is it just me or is her voice very annoying?

    • Oct. 24, 2:43am

      Definitely not just you. I’d reckon she had a hard time living down her name, as well.

      Here’s to hoping GT5 comes out by Christmas. If it really is delayed several other months, I will be dearly annoyed, because I’ve been itching for a proper racing game since I had to give my friend his borrowed Xbox back and couldn’t play Forza 3.

  43. Oct. 24, 1:31am

    So either, it’ll be in dlc form, and GT gets launched by Xmas, or we have at least a 6-8 month wait from the time a winner is crowned. . . great. Lets hope for the first, and hopefully it wont be alone.

  44. Oct. 24, 1:25am

    Well I admit I’m confused, I thought DLC of any kind was simply not going to happen from what I’ve read as officially coming from KY himself… maybe they got that wrong, maybe Kazunori has changed his mind. I hope so, I’d love DLC, especially if it’s regular DLC to add even more to GT5…. Nevertheless I just can’t wait to have this game, mmmm Xmas!

    • Oct. 24, 1:35am

      Yes, I would like to see some DLC for GT5. There are cars I know that I would love to see but won’t be in the game from the start.

      Awhile ago I thought about maybe, in the near future after release, that PD would obtain a license for Porsche and add DLC for that… but I doubt it. We’ll have to wait and see.

    • Oct. 24, 1:39am

      I believe Kazunori only ruled out additional downloadable content that you have to pay for. Considering several new cars were added to GT5 Prologue via download at no charge, it would not be surprising for GT5 to receive similar updates throughout its lifetime.

    • Oct. 24, 1:47am

      And a few cars for GT PSP was also downloadable on PSN 4 free.

    • Oct. 24, 7:28am

      DLC was inevitable, not to mention they’d already employed it with GT5p. He was only trying to say that the game would be content complete, i.e. they won’t be holding back stuff to beef up the game post release.

    • Oct. 24, 12:25pm

      free or not, I hope there is DLC & I will be buying it. Premiumizing the standard cars should be top priority. And yes, I just made up a word

    • Oct. 25, 12:49pm

      I hate DLC.

  45. Oct. 24, 1:20am
    Granturismo 5

    i hope someone shows a W247 HSV. that will be awsome in GT5.

    • Oct. 24, 1:21am
      Granturismo 5

      whooops i mean W427

    • Oct. 24, 2:18am

      That would be totally awesome. I hope so for that too because I haven’t heard much about any Australian cars in Gran Turismo 5…
      Maybe they could put the Walkinshaw Performance Holden Commodore from the Syndey Motor Show. That would be epic!

    • Oct. 24, 2:38am

      So far no Australian cars have been announced for GT5. It will be very disappointing if there are none. We make some tough cars here

    • Oct. 24, 4:21am

      I would be over the moon to just have the FG and VEII models in there. Nothing special, XR6T & SS would be fine. I seriously doubt its going to happen however. BTW when the GT-HO drops, it will leave the 427 in the dust! ;)

    • Oct. 24, 6:39am

      No, Holden, and FPV will both be in GT5, as they were both also in GT4.

    • Oct. 24, 12:48pm

      Yep the W427 is definately GT-worthy. Given it’s low production, high price, and the fact that most will go directly into collections and NOT be driven.

    • Oct. 26, 10:43pm
      GT Pro

      Wholeheartedly agree. PD, we want the W427!

  46. Oct. 24, 1:17am

    PD, just focus on one thing; GET THE GAME OUT.

    • Oct. 24, 1:20am

      Agree 100%.

    • Oct. 24, 1:25am

      Polyphony Digital is not involved with this event. It’s organized and promoted by Gran Turismo’s publisher, Sony.

    • Oct. 24, 1:31am

      but still… PD has to create the car which is a premium and that really takes time.-_-

    • Oct. 24, 1:34am

      @rydeen lets hope its dlc then, and among at least 5 or 10 other cars.

    • Oct. 24, 1:49am
      ferhound id

      holy mother of god let it be dlc then plz

    • Oct. 24, 2:21am

      The game is already done (right? It’s only printing it on bluray that remains?) so PD should have all the time in the world to create new cars for download.

    • Oct. 24, 5:10am

      4 little words so precious and so true…

    • Oct. 24, 1:23pm
      the nothing

      Yea, Didnt they say at one point that it takes nearly a month to get 1 car in?

    • Oct. 25, 9:37am

      well “the nothing”

      they said long time ago 6 months to create one car (now maybe less)

      and you guys have to read the news first before post – it says “winner will be announced and eventually included in a “future” GT game” and its not a GT5, PD is working allready on GT6 so it will be in GT6 or DLC :) (hope not DLC, it only spoils the game for everybody else)

    • Oct. 25, 8:08pm

      lmao. My sentiments exactly. I was thinking the same exact thing.
      Enough with all the accessory b.s. We don’t want anymore novelties and gadgets. JUST RELEASE THE DANG GAME ALREADY

    • Oct. 26, 2:38pm

      Unless its free in a patch like what they did for GT5p
