Every year, developers Polyphony Digital hold the Gran Turismo Trophy, an event which sees the winning car immortalised with a promise to appear in a future GT game.

Not just the overall make and model. The actual, individual car.

This year's winner is a gorgeous 1953 Aston Martin DB3S Sports, owned by Brian Classic. You can see some pictures of it below. You can also see some pictures of Gran Turismo series boss Kazunori Yamauchi looking fresh.
