I am an exuberant fan of the Gran Tursimo series and also a big fan of its creator Kazunori Yamauchi. Besides introducing the world to GT, being fully involved with the development of the Nissan R35 GT-R, and being allowed to model Ferrari's 2007 F1 car, he was a guest at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Kaz was a judge at the show and was there to award the Polyphony Digital Trophy to a deserving car.

This event rises above just video games as this is the ultimate classic car event and only the greatest cars win here.

Just like always this is not an automatic sign that Lamborghini will be in GT5 but it shows that it is more likely.

Oh, I thought it was a new Lambo based on the old Miura. :(

That was an interesting thing and i had the pleasure of seeing it in person when i visited the Lamborghini museum and factory in 2007.

I got to admit that the 1966 car is far more important to Lamborghini and automotive history though.

Not a picture i took but here is the location. I guess they move the cars around because it was in a different spot when i visited.
