2007 Audi TT is Gran Turismo Awards' 'Best in Show'

Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA), publisher of the Gran Turismo series, the world's best selling racing game franchise with over 47 million units shipped worldwide, hosted the fifth annual Gran Turismo Awards last night in conjunction with the 2007 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) auto show in Las Vegas. This year's highly anticipated event featured a distinguished line-up of automotive entries from top SEMA show exhibitors representing five categories, all vying for the coveted "Best in Show" title, which went to Marcel Horn for his 2007 Audi TT. For the top honor, Marcel Horn's exceptional 2007 Audi TT will be immortalized as a featured vehicle in a future iteration of the Gran Turismo franchise, allowing millions of fans worldwide to race his vehicle. Last year's Best in Show award winning 1960 Chevrolet Corvette will be unveiled in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, available on PS3 computer entertainment system in North America in 2008.

hmmm jap cars are better in some ways, my Civic Si 1.4 V-tech blows away my Ford Capri 2.8i V6 because the engine revs higher, its lighter and surprisingly has alot of power, Civic= about 133BHP, Capri a whole 1.4 bigger only produces 190BHP, civic weighs just under a ton, about 989KG, Ford Capri weighs a staggerin 1576KG, crazy or what

but the capri has the power going to the proper wheels (the back ones), and probably has a wider torque band, and will probably be quicker round a track.

and its probably a lot more "lively" to drive, if you know what i mean... ;)
