GTbyCitroen hits Harrods
Exclusive: Top Gear magazine takes Citroen's one-off fantasy car onto the streets of London, embarrasses rich kids
Posted: 16 Sep 2010
Spearing the GT off towards Hyde Park Corner, every head on the busy pavements turns to track our progress. The gearbox hisses and slaps and the road reels past, a silent movie beyond the sharply raked screen and our screaming auditorium. As the World’s Biggest Cornershop heaves into view, the hurried commuter turns static spectator, stopping dead in his tracks, mouth agape. But he is not why we’re here. The prey in this particular spot is an extraordinary über-class of impossibly wealthy people for whom Harrods is the new Mecca.
