Red Bull unveils X1 car for Gran Turismo 5


Video: Sebastian Vettel test drives the X1 Prototype - a model created by Red Bull Racing for the Gran Turismo 5 video game

Red Bull Racing driver Vettel pushes the fantasy X1 to its limits at the virtual Suzuka Circuit.

The X1 Prototype is a fan car - a fan forces the air from under the car, reducing lift and creating a suction effect with massive amounts of downforce.

The X1 Protoype comes with a 3000cc twin-turbo V6 engine producing 1106kW and 714Nm of torque. The X1 will reach a top speed of 450kph, and 0-96kph in 1.4 seconds.

Maximum lateral acceleration can reach 8.75G - at the very limit of what the human body can withstand.

Gran Turismo 5 will contain more than 1000 recreated cars ranging from the latest supercars to the cars of NASCAR and WRC. Standing proud will be the fastest car in the game - the Red Bull X1.
