Sebastian Vettel pilots the Red Bull X1 prototype – Click above to watch video after the jump

Red Bull has put Sebastian Vettel into Gran Turismo 5's virtual cockpit of the Red Bull X1 prototype, and the results are predictably smashing. After taking roughly 19 seconds off his time around the Suzuka track, Vettel in his own words takes another 20 seconds off his best lap at the 'Ring's GP course his first time out. It looks like a handful in the beginning – he uses all the runoff while coming to grip with the car's grip and 400 km/hr top speed – but when he gets the hang of it, ah yes...

Forget about GT5. Build. This. Car. Follow the jump for the action and check out our high-res gallery below.
