Check out Gran Tursimo 5’s X1 Prototype

Sony has been teasing this fantasy racing car they’ve put together with Red Bull Racing for some time now. It’s finally revealed and we have plenty of pictures to share with you.

The car was the answer to a big ‘what if.’ They wanted to use Gran Turismo 5 to see what the fastest race car would be outside any regulation. The X1 is it. The result? 1,483hp at 15,000rpm, a top speed of 400kmh and up to 6G of lateral G-force. Car design superman Adrian Newey went nuts and used an old, banned design. He used a fan to force air out from underneath the car, lowering the air pressure creating a huge amount of downforce.

One thing’s for sure: This car is crazy looking. Check out our gallery. One of the shots shows its underside. You can see the fan thing mentioned above in it. 

Of course, the X1 will be the fastest car in the game when Gran Turismo 5 is released later this year.
