Following the unveil of McLaren’s MP4-X Formula 1 concept, crankandpiston.com took a look at some other notable designs of ‘the future of Formula 1’.
Red Bull X2014 Fan
At a time when Gran Turismo concepts were being put on the map, the above concept threw it squarely into the spotlight. Designed by legendary F1 designer Adrian Newey, the X2014 Fan follows the X1 design as ‘the universe’s ultimate racing car’. As well as a batshit aerodynamic package, the model features a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 producing a whopping 1483bhp, capable – theoretically at least – of a 400kph top speed. Oh, and the ‘fan’ part of that name is pretty critical too: it produces more downforce than the human mind could fathom to create the greatest cornering speeds.
