Citroën GT Concept: updates

Presented at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the futuristic GTbyCitroën concept has made appearances at the Nürburgring and Le Mans 24 hour races and is headed to the Goodwood Hill Festival of Speed. The latest information confirm a possible limited series production.


Citroen GT ConceptThe GTbyCITROËN has completed laps of honour at both the Nürburgring and Le Mans 24 hour endurance races.

On 3-5 July it will make its UK debut climbing the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill at this year’s Festival of Speed.

The GT Concept was first unveiled at the Paris Motorshow on last October where the partnership between Citroën and Polyphony, designer of the driving simulation game Gran Turismo5 on the Playstation 3, unveiled the real world replica of the digital vehicle.

Measuring nearly five-metres long (4.96m), and just over a metre high (1.09m), the GTbyCitroën is characterised by a large wraparound windscreen which flows into the roof and on into the rear mobile airfoil.

The dynamic supercar feel is further enhanced by wide air intakes, a flat underside, rear air-diffuser, clear-cut horizontal headlamps, gullwing doors and diamond-effect 21 inch aluminium wheels.

The production version, which could be built in about 20 units, could have the electric powertain replaced by a more conventional V8 engine and would have a very exclusive price tag, given the fact that Citroen does not intend to lose money with the limited series.

Should it be approved, a first model could appear at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, with first deliveries expected for 2010.
