Gran Turismo 5 Introduces The Fastest Car In The World
What is the fastest car in the world? Bugatti? Not so fast...ha!...get it?
You've probably heard about the new X1 Prototype that will be included in Gran Turismo 5, but you probably haven't seen the real thing in action. A full gameplay trailer, complete with all sorts of track footage, is below, and it's just plain mind-boggling. If we can imagine racing without safety restrictions, these guys could create a vehicle that can turn a lap on the famed Nurburgring track in about 1:04, and features a top speed of 280mph with a lateral acceleration of 8.75Gs. W...T...F.
A miracle of modern technology, the X1 is the next step in automotive speed and performance. This one is probably out of the realm of handling if you aren't a professional like Sebastian Vettel but that doesn't mean you can't try. Said Adrian Newey, Chief Technical Officer at Red Bull Racing.
"The results were thrilling. X1 is about evolution. Delivering the optimum combination of tested technologies in a single integrated design. This would be the future of racing were we not bound by regulations, but one that is achievable today. And as Sebastian has shown, it is about devastating speed coupled with real handling control. Today thanks to PlayStation®3 and Gran Turismo we can test drive the future."
