The No-Holds-Barred Race Car Trapped Inside Gran Turismo 5S

When Gran Turismo 5 finally arrives, it will include the Red Bull X1 prototype, the answer to the question of "What if you designed a race car with an unlimited budget and no regard for rules?" Gas turbine, engage.

While we wait and wait for GT5, the specs on the Adrian Newey-shaped virtual machine just add to the pain of patience: 1483 hp and 527 lb.-ft. of torque from a gas turbine, moving 1,201 lbs. of carbon fiber to a top speed of 249 mph. Someday maybe you too can try to best the Suzuka F1 record by 20 seconds. (H/t to Rattleface) [GT Planet]
