Paris concept is available to download on Gran Turismo. Now

Citroen GT concept

We wouldn't have bet on Citroen dropping such an impressive car at Paris that they'd steal the show from Lambo.

But that was before we saw this, the GT concept.

We walked over the stand, with those annoyingly insufficient teaser shots from last week fresh in our mind, and we nearly fell over ourselves when we clapped eyes on it.

The GT concept is mind blowingly cool. It conjures up the same sort of otherworldly wonder that Mazda's Furai does.

Every line of its form has you intrigued, from the massive front splitter all the way along to that mental elongated spoiler.

And it's a bloody Citroen!

There's no way it will ever get made obviously, and as yet we don't know what, if anything, is under the bonnet. But we'll at least get to drive it. On the PS3, via Gran Turismo 5.

Here at the show they've got Gran Turismo set up next to the GT concept, so that you can drive the car in the game next to the car.

You can download it too for your console at home, too. But will they build it? Frankly, we quite like the idea of a car built for a computer game being ripped off and made in reality.

Citroen is saying nothing. We reckon they should work out exactly how quick it'll be in the game and slot in an engine to make its virtual performance a reality.

 

Now share it...
