The Red Bull X2019 Competition is a hypothetical concept car produced by Gran Turismo in partnership with Red Bull Racing. It first appears in Gran Turismo Sport, where it was introduced as part of Update 1.40.
'The fastest racing car on earth, free from any and all regulation': The fan car project of Red Bull Racing and Gran Turismo, sparked by this dream of Kazunori Yamauchi, has already produced two ultimate racing machines, the X2010 and X2014. But with the opening of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships, a need arose for a competition vehicle that both the driver and spectators could enjoy. This lead to the birth of the X2019 Competition.
The X2019 Competition is based on the X2014 Standard. On the exterior, the front wing and the rear end of the body was altered to reduce downforce, in order to suppress the drastic change in aerodynamics that would occur in close battles with another car. The front and rear wheel covers have also been changed to allow fast tyre changes. The 2 litre turbo is replaced by a 3 litre naturally aspirated engine, and a more conventional throttle system has been introduced in order to give it a more attractive racing sound.
The X2019 Competition will be painted in the national colours of the Nations Cup finalists according to the home nationality of the drivers. This is a racing machine that will be unmatched in its ability to make the championship more exciting.
This car can be purchased in the Gran Turismo section of Brand Central for 3,000,000 Credits.
- An early name for the car, Red Bull X2014 Competition, was used during the 2019 Gran Turismo World Tour event in Paris; the name was changed for the Nürburgring event.
