Sony GT Awards 2014 Photo Gallery

If you love cars and video games, chances are you've played (or still play) Gran Turismo for Sony PlayStation. It's arguably the most realistic driving simulator franchise of all time—we even know some pro drivers who use it to practice! But what we absolutely love about Gran Turismo is its support of the aftermarket. From tuner cars to actual parts we would install on our own project cars, Sony has done an amazing job making the game relevant for enthusiasts like us. And for the past 12 years, the company has put together an award show that gives the opportunity for the best cars at SEMA to be put into the game—the Sony GT Awards.

This year's overall winner went to a domestic... Now, we're not avid fans of Chevys, but after checking out Jeremy Gerber's '70 Camaro, it was easily a hands-down winner. The car was immaculate inside and out with a carbon-fiber widebody and cantilevered suspension. Under the hood was an LS7 tuned to 750 hp; however, every millimeter of this Camaro was customized and simply screamed awesomeness. On the Japanese end, Ernie Manansala's GT-R took the trophy. Easily one of our favorite rides of SEMA, it sported a Rocket Bunny widebody along with GReddy's latest GTX-R turbo upgrade.

Kazunori Yamauchi of Gran Tursimo awarded five car builders on the second day of SEMA inside Drais Nightclub. Following the awards, more than a thousand SEMA guests packed one of Vegas' hottest clubs for a night of drinks, fist pumping, and video games. Props to all the winners, and be sure to register with Gran Turismo next year if you want a chance to have your SEMA build featured in the game!

Big congrats to our friend Ernie Manansala and his team for taking home the Best Japanese award for his beautiful 1,200hp GT-R. Kei Miura approved!
