Red Bull Project X2010 prototype – the construction

 

Red Bull has released a new video that shows how the X2010 (aka X1 prototype) was transformed from a Gran Turismo 5 fixture into a full-scale model.

Built by Industrial Design Consultancy, the real life X2010 features individually milled sections and a design created by Red Bull’s Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey.

While the mock up doesn’t have a powertrain, the virtual X2010 has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that produces 1500 PS (1103 kW / 1479 hp) and 714 Nm (527 lb-ft) of torque. This immense power in combination with a fan that creates a suction effect with immense downforce allows the futuristic car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 1.4 seconds, 0-200 mph (322 km/h) in 6.1 seconds, and onto a top speed of 280 mph (450 km/h). Lateral acceleration can reach 8.75G – at the very limit of what the human body can withstand.
