Winning entries will be digitally recreated and made playable in the next Gran Turismo

For 11 straight years, the Gran Turismo Awards has been doling out awards to the best looking trucks and cars at the SEMA show.  Judges chosen from various automotive media and/or enterprise vote vehicles into 5 categories - Best Truck or SUV, Best Hot Rod, Best Domestic Automobile, Best European Import, and Best Asian Import. 

For the first time ever, Gran Turismo is allowing fans from all over the world to vote for the most tricked-out, hottest-looking vehicle - or just the whip they’d most likely want to drive - in the new People’s Choice Award category.

Official candidates will be posted on Gran Turismo’s Facebook fanpage (search for granturismous) starting November 5 and the vehicle with the most “Likes” wins. 

The People’s Choice Awardee will compete with the winners of the 5 other categories for the overall Best in Show award, which comes with the distinction of being digitally recreated and playable in the next Gran Turismo.
