The lights are on
Gran Turismo developer and real-world car racing team Red Bull are teaming up for fictional car to be featured in Gran Turismo 5: The X1 Prototype.
"Every race in the world today conforms to some sort of regulations," said Polyphony's Kazunori Yamauchi, "and
every racing car is built to fit within those various regulations.
However, the X1 is something new, created from a 'what-if' scenario, a
dream we have long held at Polyphony. We want to inspire racing fans and
the industry alike by exploring the realm of possibilities for the
future of motorsports."
Just how fast is this car? In the game it blew away the course record at Suzuka by more than 20 seconds. Check out the car in action in the video below.
Next Up: Polyphony and Red Bull try to cross a lion and a eagle to make the ultimate killing machine.

So what does the car look like? :)
Great vid, if only I could tell what was in it :P
"Check out the car in action in the video below."
uhm...as far as videos go, that one kinda sucked.
Thumbs Up to the guy in the X1 giving us a Thumbs Up!
And the X1 reminds me of the Batmobile.
Wow. cool from the stylish(but highly innefective) shots i saw the graphics in this game will be almost photorealistic. Im a little dissapointed with these fictional cars sneaking there way into GT5 though.
Red Bull gives you wiiiinnnngs.
Wings on Tires, I just hope the car is not up there in the millions of credits.
Ha the video didn't really show much. It made it seem like any other car. Looks like a Formula 1 car actually.
So the car they make will be featured in GT5? That's kind of cool.
I don't really understand why a made up car doing practically impossible (outside of salt flats cars)speeds is being put into, "The greatest driving simulator".
NA NA NA NA NA NA BATMOBILE!
The goodness never stops: a track creator; karts; over 1000 cars; and Racing!
While they're at it, Polyphony should put in the DeLorean from Back To The Future.
Okay enough, you're pissed that its a "what-if" possibility, and not an actual car. Theres over 1000 real cars in the car. Let them throw in the Batmobile if they want.
Next Up: Polyphony and Red Bull try to cross a lion and a eagle to make the ultimate killing machine.... Sooo they are going to recreate Dick Cheney?
Is this car meant to set some specs to overcome real life's Bugatti Veyron?
