    Does anyone else think this looks a lot like the Caparo T1?

    one million bhp.. 1.5million torque

    Does anyone know the name of the song?

    It seems like lately the teaser concept has gone from “quick look at” to ” .5 second look at” to ” .05 second look at a potentially interesting blur” and finally now we have “.05 second shaky-cam look at a blur in the dark of something that might be interesting.”

    Turn up the brightness and contrast a bit and it’s clearly what would be a Caparo T2.
    So… Red Bull F1 Team backing Caparo?

    This car is a complete mystery to me.

    what a concept, an f1 car with no design restrictions. sick.

    Awesome. That silhouette of it in front of the wind tunnel reminds of when Ripley discovers the Queen in Aliens. You can almost hear it breathing, waiting to strike…

    You got to be kidding me… that prototype looks INSANE! This proves again how much Gran Turismo transcends even gaming. Totally unreal this car is!

    I don’t see what’s so special about it, it looks like a standard open cockpit LMP car that’s missing a few pieces of body work.

    The silhouette reminds me of the “Caparo T1″, also based on an F1 car, but an epic failure in its entirety. Could Red Bull and Kaz actually have perfected the concept!?

      that’s exactly the car I was thinking (posted a link a few comments back).

    Red Bull is definitely taking the fight to every team in F1 this year and this car’s blend of F1 and LMP technology really does make it seem like the ultimate prototype (the speed of F1 with the endurance of LMP).

    No intake above the driver could also mean that it’s has a dual intake setup or that the powerplant is not at the rear of the car.

      It’s based on an F1 car. Where do you think the engine’s going to be? At the front?

    GT5 Isnt nuclear, its WARP SPEED !!!!!

  23. Sep. 16, 9:09pm
    F.G.

    Notice how there is no air inlet above the driver’s head, like in modern F1 cars. To me, this signifies some kind of air compression, probably turbocharging

    DarthStig1

    Part F1, part Le Man’s prototype for straightened slipperiness id guess. I wonder what it will sound like?

    • Sep. 16, 9:05pm
      F.G.

      I’m thinking turbo-charged 3.0L V12, running at 24,000 rpm.

      I’m guessing it will sound absolutely colossal

      Not just colossal…SUPER COLOSSAL!!!!!!

    Talk about product placement huh?

      can you just go somewhere and rot? you NEVER have anything good to say about GT5.. even with so much awesome news pouring out. its getting old.

    • Sep. 17, 5:28am
      Wardez

      You realize that Red Bull’s currently the fastest Formula 1 car right? And the designer of this year’s continually evolving RB10 Red Bull F1 car [Adrian Newey] helped design this ‘X1′ concept right? And that you jump to conclusions about Red Bull simply being a drink company right?

      I mean, am I right?

    • Sep. 17, 1:09pm
      UnkaD013

      Actually, the Red Bull isn’t the fastest F1 car at the moment. It’s actually among the slowest in the field in terms of top speed. HOWEVER, the genius behind its design rests in the chasis and aerodynamics, resulting in the quickest car around a circuit.

    Wow could this beat the awesome-ness of the veyron??

    • Sep. 16, 8:49pm
      samuelesm

      but it wouldn’t be a production car the significance of the Veyron is that it is a road legal production car. However, it is not the fastest in the world anymore for sometime (excluding the Veyron Supersport)

    • Sep. 17, 12:44am
      Jamaicangmr

      The Vayron Supersport is the fastest production car in the world. Why did you exclude it, that makes no sense?

    • Sep. 17, 3:23am
      Erik

      The Veyron is fast but it’s also pretty heavy, I bet this X1 car has better cornering. But also, this video is sort of “we have a prototype, but we won’t show it to you”, but it could also be “damn, TGS is already here and we haven’t even started to finish the bodywork of the X1, what do we do? I know! Let’s not actually show the car other than in very subtle close up views!”

      The SSC Ultimate Aero II is already waiting to take the speed crown again.

    • Sep. 17, 9:29am
      JoshGTR35

      Lets hope its not a drag car like the last failure.

    • Sep. 17, 3:55pm
      FlareKR

      The SSC looks like something no one will still care about. We still have people saying the Bugatti (45% of the population) or Enzo (the rest of the idiots) is the fastest car in the world.
      The SSC doesn’t have the technical supuriorty of the Veyron, nor does any car. Leather seats, air conditioning, kick-ass sound system, awesome looks, and insane acceleration. The SSC might as well have the interior of a Toyota Supra.
      I have seen both cars with my own two eyes, touched them both, even seen them both at the same time (Bullrun Miami). Everyone was looking at the Veyron, no one gave a s*** about the car with the stolen name, people thought it was a Saleen or kit car.
      The Bugatti Veyron will remain as the best car for the early 21st century.

    • Sep. 17, 10:19pm
      No_Me_Matez

      well said FlareKR.. well said. screw the SSC, I dont care if they are coming out with an Ultimate Aero II. nobody cares. the Bugatti Veyron is still king, in both accelration and top speed. its really quite pathetic that the minute the Veyron SS came out SSC said “OH TIME TO ‘OUTSHINE’ THEM AGAIN LOL.”

      I think thats the car in the end of the release date trailer! And Vettel is saying: Easily reaching about 400km/h on straitaway. Which we see here in this trailer. :)

      So that explains the wind tunnel at the end of GT PSP, and that…thing, whatever it is that Kaz is next to that we saw being closed in the Soul on Display trailer.
