Citroen GT hits London

Awesome supercar concept touches down in the capital. But what’s under the bonnet?

Up until now, the GTbyCitroen has been pure virtual reality – a digital-only supercar created for the Gran Turismo video game. So we were a little surprised when these pictures popped into our inbox.

Yep, it’s a real one. In London. Take a good look at the first pic in our gallery. See the shadows and reflections? That’s not the work of a Photoshop genius - it’s proof that Citroen has made a proper, touchable concept version.
 
Looks awesome, doesn’t it? At five metres long and just a metre high, it’s got a swoopy supercar stance. The gullwing doors don’t look bad either.

Of course, Citroen couldn’t resist a little virtual trickery – some of the shots are renderings from the GT5 Prologue game.

But fear not. The real GT goes to Goodwood next week to drive up a posh man’s driveway. Hopefully it will have something decent under the bonnet. Maybe some kind of V8 sourced from outside the Citroen parts store.
 
If not, there’s always the 1.6-litre diesel from a Berlingo

Now share it...
