Gran Turismo 5: Free Red Bull X2010 For Everyone if Vettel Wins the Championship

on September 30, 2011 10:00 AM

Kazunori Yamauchi has never hidden the fact that he’s a fan of Sebastian Vettel and the german driver is literally one point away from winning the F1 World Championship (much to my dismay, as a Ferrari fan).

The director of Gran Turismo 5 announced today on Twitter that the game’s players will have one more reason to celebrate Vettel’s probable victory at the upcoming GRand Prix at Suzuka:

If Sebastian Vettel becomes the winner of the F1 World Championship title in the Oct. 9 Formula 1 Suzuka GP…

To commemorate Vettel’s 2 year consecutive world championship title,

We’ll give away the “Red Bull X2010 S.Vettel” color, TO EVERYONE WHO LOGS ONTO GT5 WITHIN 1WK FROM VETTEL’S VICTORY…

Personally, I already have two of those, but I’m sure many still didn’t manage to get their hands on the rather overpowered beast. If you’re planning to get Gran Turismo 5, or to return to it when the Spec 2.0 update (that we still know nothing about) will hit, it might be wise to do so a week or so earlier in order to get this car.

EDIT: It has come to my attention that many were wondering if we’d get just the color, and not the car itself, due to the wording of the third tweet. We’re getting the whole car, as Yamauchi specified in a further message:

The car, not the color.

In the meanwhile, to wet your appetite, you can enjoy a few of my favourite screenshots of the X2010.
