Let's Look At Gran Turismo 5's X1 Prototype

This car is a virtual dream. But it's pedigree is very real.

The XI Prototype is designed by Adrian Newey, one of the giants of Formula 1. Now at Red Bull Racing, Newey previously designed for Williams and McLaren.

When designing the XI Prototype, Gran Turismo 5 creator Kazunori Yamauchi encouraged Newey to create a virtual racer that could take motorsports to the edge.

The story is too old to be commented.

I really like the look of this car. They should release some hi-res images of it. I don't think I've seen any.

They said Newey made the design. That is in fact falls. He may have fixed and finalized it, but the initial design and concept was from Kaz and his team.

what challenges you have to win to get this car.

Based off looking at it, I would hazard a guess that it's a prize for perhaps winning all of the F1 races, or a set of them. Top speed of 249MPH, handles "brilliantly" and set a world record on the Suzuka Circuit... Yeah it's an animal.

I don't think the car looks brilliant, but the handle and drive sounds awesome, plus I like the idea that they made a new car for the game... Asif the other 999 are not enough XD
