With its outrageous styling and its particular lines, the GT by Citroën is one of its kind. But the fact that it was so unique, so futuristic, so unusual, didn't stop its designer Takumi Yamamoto from pushing the boundaries of his imagination even further by designing a race spec version. And it looks absolutely ferocious! The interior of the car had a similar treatment from the Polyphony Digital Team which wanted it to look like a modern jet fighter interior. Mission accomplished.

How about four of these on the Circuit de La Sarthe by night?

And that's not all. Polyphony digital was cooking something else for you, and it's called the X1 Prototype. Designed by none other than Formula One's current best designer, Mr Adrian Newey, the philosophy of this car is to go beyond restrictions and regulations. It's about creating a race car with no power nor aerodynamic restrictions. It's about creating the fastest, best handling machine while still obeying the laws of physics. To get a first glimpse of this car, check out the video below.

My favourite quotes about this car are:

"..the X1 is something new, created from a ‘what-if’ dream." - Kazunori Yamauchi
“This is the inspiration that brought Red Bull Racing and Polyphony together. And as a result the X1 Prototype is dynamite to drive.” - Adrian Newey

Here are some teasers..

On his first virtual lap with the X1 Prototype, Sebastian Vettel managed to beat Kimi Raikkonen's 2005 lap record by 20 seconds! This is without a doubt going to be one of the most extreme driving experiences that we have ever tried on a racing simulation.
