    For those who followed the development of Gran Turismo 5, it would be known that famed F1 designer Adrian Newey had been commisioned to design a special car for the game that tests what a race car would be like if not bound by regulations.

    Initially called the X1 Prototype, the Red Bull X2010 is a fictional car that has insane specs: 1483bhp from a 3.0L V6 engine, and a top speed of 450km/h. In its original in-game test, it beat the F1 lap record at Suzuka by 20 seconds.

    Now, a new video about the X2010 has been released, where Newey talks viewers through the design process of the car. A life-size model has already been built, but it is not drivable. However, Newey claims that the car can be built in real life, and that it obeys all physical laws - the basic gist of it is this: all that now needs to be done is find someone cashed-up enough to build it, and someone crazy enough to drive it!

    Watch the video below:

    Somebody should donate $200 million and have Red Bull build one, run it at Yas Marina or something at the end of the 2011 season for fun.
