Video: Previewing the X1 Prototype from Gran Turismo 5

The beauty of the virtual auto world is that there are absolutely no boundaries; anything and everything can be accomplished so as long as you have excellent designers willing to stretch the boundaries in building the ultimate supercar.

Fortunately, the boys from Polyphony Digital are up to the task and together with Red Bull Racing, they’ve created a car that, in their own words, “is freed of all technical regulations.”

It’s called the X1 Prototype and to our good fortune, the car is scheduled to be included in Gran Turismo 5. Despite the continuous delays of the game, we have no doubt that its designers are more than capable of designing a car that, in so many words, can do everything except fly.

Check out this video taken by Joystiq, which previews the ultimate of all ultimate supercars in action – in the virtual world of Gran Turismo 5, of course. Not that we can’t think of another reason to anxiously wait for the game to hit the shelves later this year, but this X1 Prototype now has us drooling for this game to come.

The video has been removed already! But I have to agree on what have been said that good graphics contributes to the good aura of the game. Well, for the GT5, the graphics is ultimately superb! i really want to thank the designer behind it!

I’m pretty sure mchedaddi is mentioning Gears of War 3, which is for X360. Not sure why it’s being mentioned in a PS3-centric article. God of War III was released in March.

It’s a completely relevant story, particularly since Adrian Newey was involved. For those of us who enjoy F1 qualifying as much as the race, an "X1" series where unlimited prototypes compete for lap times is a dream. With this, it could get closer to reality...
