Red Bull’s much hyped X1 prototype, designed to be the ultimate expression of a race car, no longer exists within the digital confines of Gran Turismo 5.

We’re not entirely sure where the “F1-derived direct-injection 3-litre twin-turbo V6″ comes from, but the power output figures of 1,438 horsepower at 15,000 rpm and 526 lb-ft of torque at  12,000 rpm makes gives us goosebumps.

Whether the car runs or not hasn’t been revealed, but the physical manifestation of the X1 will debut at the GT5 launch party in Madrid towards the end of November.
