The Sony Gran Turismo Awards 2016

Celebrating 14 years in Las Vegas

Photographer: Soiree X Social

For the last 14 years, the Sony Gran Turismo Awards has been one of the most sought after accolades that revolve around SEMA week. The awards are simple: Five builders are nominated within five different categories—Asian Import, Euro, Domestic, Truck, and Hot Rod. After each builder is selected, Gran Turismo founder Kazunori Yamauchi reveals the overall winner at Gran Turismo’s finale party inside Marquee Nightclub on the second night of SEMA. The winner’s pride and joy is then slated to become an actual driveable car in a future video game. With the new Gran Turismo Sport game scheduled for release sometime in ’17, this couldn’t be any more exciting; however, with more than a thousand cars and trucks at SEMA, judging these awards isn’t the easiest task to take on. Which is where we come to the rescue...

Super Street has been very humblessed to be a guest judge of the Import category for several years. In ’15, we helped Sung Kang take home gold, as his 240Z earned the big prize. This year, we didn’t expect to win a back-to-back title but were very proud to nominate Chris Forsberg’s Datsun 280Z as the winner of the Import category.

Congrats to all the winners, and if you’re building a car for this year’s SEMA, don’t forget to register early for a chance to be featured in one of the most respected driving simulators in video game history!

Bruce Leven’s 1951 Ford Coupe was simply an above-and-beyond build. Much respect, Bruce!
