The 2018 SEMA Gran Turismo Awards


The annual SEMA show in Las Vegas is a celebration of all things automotive and, it turns out, that applies even to the virtual automotive world. Every year since 2003, video game franchise Gran Turismo appoints judges to recognize a few special cars as the best of their breed and bestow upon the the GT Awards. Of those finalists, Gran Turismo creator and producer Kazunori Yamaguchi picks a final winning car to digitize in a later version of the game.
