What if you could create the ultimate racing car, a vehicle unbounded by rules or legal racing conventions? Literally the fastest car possible. It was a question Gran Turismo’s Polphony Digital asked, and one Red Bull dutifully answered.
“If you built the fastest racing car on land, one that throws aside all rules and regulations, what would that car look like, how would it perform and how would it feel to drive?”
The result: The X1 Prototype. From the press release:
“Red Bull’s aerodynamics expert, Adrian Newey, performed the role of technical advisor on the X1 Prototype project. Adrian is renowned in the motorsports world for designing championship winning cars. Throughout the X1 design process by Polyphony, Adrian contributed his vast experience, as well as a pure, child-like technical curiosity. As a result, the completed X1 Prototype became an extreme car, having a unique form and mechanism unlike any other racing car in history.”
