If you've already conquered most of what Gran Turismo 6 can throw at you, get ready for possibly the toughest challenge yet. Got the chops?
Update 1.02 is here and as revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , this hefty 1.2GB update adds the Red Bull X Challenge and two new Red Bull cars. The new event is part of a collaboration with Infiniti Red Bull Racing that includes 2013 Formula 1 Racing Champion Sebastian Vettel. He's on hand to help you out, if necessary.
The Red Bull Racing Kart and Red Bull X2014 Junior will be in dealerships after the update, while the Red Bull X2014 Standard and Fan cars should join them at a later date. All the new Red Bull X2014 cars have been designed for GT6 in conjunction with Infiniti Red Bull Racing's legendary Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey. Said Polyphony Digital boss and GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi:
"We are very grateful to Adrian Newey, Sebastian Vettel, and Infiniti Red Bull Racing for providing this special gift for Gran Turismo fans. To be taught how to drive downforce cars by the best racing driver in the world is very special, and the new Red Bull X2014 cars are another exciting addition to Gran Turismo 6. This is the latest update for the game, and there are more to come."
Vettel added that he's been playing Gran Turismo since he was 12 years old, so being able to appear as a mentor in the game is pretty great. And by the way, remember when I always said that real racers appreciate this series? Yeah, this is sort of what I mean.
