Unlike the previous car, it did not change its name in the process.[35][36]
.On top of that, Studie was one of the few teams that adopted color designs from the general public, rather than a professional designer in international motorsport history.^ As explained by Sam Inglis in that review, Cantor uses synthesis to create its phoneme sounds, rather than the sample-based approach adopted by Vocaloid.

.When Piapro (official fansite which is in charge of collecting designs) was collecting designs of the Hatsune Miku Studie Glad BMW Z4, they did not announce the designs would be used in Super GT series, instead most of the designers expected it would be racing in the lower-level Super Taikyu Series, or as display cars in autoshows or Comiket (the plan was disgusied as a model-car design contest), so many of them chose #39, the number which usually belongs to Hatsune Miku.^ Internet Backdraft : Fans weren't exactly thrilled with Gakupo and Megpoid's designs when they were first announced...

However, in the Super GT series, the #39 belonged to Toyota Team SARD (Now known as Lexus team SARD) in the GT500 class; this fact was reflected in Goodsmile Racing stickers for Z4 car models released after the 2008 season, which they provided both for #39 and #808. Like the previous season, Piapro picked a design from the public and it was revealed in February 2009.[37]

Internet Co. Ltd.'s Vocaloids

Gackpoid

Internet Co. Ltd. wanted to utilize the voice of a musician for the creation of Vocaloid but felt it would be difficult to acquire cooperation. They consulted Dwango, who suggested Gackt, a musician and an actor, as he had previously provided his voice for Dwango's cell phone services.[38] He lent his voice and named the Vocaloid Gackpoid (がくっぽいど Gakuppoido?). The product was originally intended to be released in June 2008, but although Gackt existed as a model for the Vocaloid, its illustrated avatar was yet to be determined. .Finally a popular manga author Kentarō Miura, famous for his dark fantasy epic Berserk, was asked for his cooperation.^ News (09-21-2009): Yoshito Usui, author of the famous manga Crayon Shin-chan, has been found dead on mount Arafune.

Due to Miura's affection for Nico Nico Douga, he agreed to offer his services as a character designer for free. .As a fan of Berserk, Gackt was more than happy with this arrangement, and requested Miura's sketches be faxed to him as well as the developers, even though he was on location for the filming of Guy Moshe's Bunraku.^ I believe these two areas may be even more critical than adding articulations and experimenting with expressive controls.
