Most racing games try to go for as realistic a representation of real-life driving as possible. But Gran Turismo goes a step beyond that. Its programmers at Polyphony Digital have a track record of creating fantastical cars just for the game, and this is their latest.

Created in collaboration with Red Bull's celebrated and accomplished chief engineer Adrian Newey, the new X2014 imagines what a Formula One racecar would look like if it weren't bound by any regulations. Three versions will appear in the soon-to-be-released GT6: the Fan car (dubbed X2014/F), the Standard car (X2014/S) and the Junior car (X2014/J). We have no idea what the difference is between the three versions, but the Fan car is the one pictured here.

This, of course, isn't the first time Polyphony Digital has rendered a car in digital form that doesn't exist in real life (beyond a solitary show car, anyway). Newey penned its precursor, the X1, for GT5. Citroën created a concept car for the game called the GTbyCitroën that never saw life beyond the show stand and the game system. And most recently, Mercedes created the AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept specifically for the game - the first in a series of cars designed by automakers for the new game. Watch this space for more.

      hahahaha... they should make the most hp they can.... there are hackers out there who can make their cars with 100,000,000hp that are 5 times as fast as the x1.... this is just to stupid.....

      It looks like a LMP1 car and a F1 car had a baby... a very fast and amazing love child.

      Keep in mind this game is realistic but not a racing sim. iRacing is a real sim.

      The 5 year old in me thinks that is cool as hell! (I guess that means 28 year old me thinks the same).

      I'd bet it takes a bit more than 2.05 seconds to change those tires.

        It probably would. But then again it was designed with "no rules" in mind. Lighter weight, better aerodynamics, probably better everything, including the tire compound. And if it takes 4 seconds or 24 seconds to change the tires, every team (theoretically) will probably take around that same time anyway so it doesn't matter.

      I would sell both nuts, both kidneys, and even my autographed picture of Zooey Deschanel for this car. Good God what a piece of machinery.
