CitroÃ«nâ€™s stunning concept supercar, the GTbyCITROÃ‹N, took to the streets of central LondonÂ to recreate part of the â€˜street circuitâ€™ featured in Gran Turismo 5 â€“ the PlayStation3 driving game which the GTbyCITROÃ‹N was designed for.
Taking in some of the Capitalâ€™s most famous landmarks, the virtual-turned-reality supercar swapped pixels for Piccadilly as it swept through the world famous circus, toured Regent Street, rounded Trafalgar Square and cruised down the Mall past Buckingham Palace.
The result of a unique partnership between CitroÃ«n and Polyphony, designers of the Gran Turismo game series, the GTbyCITROÃ‹N concept measures nearly five metres long (4.96m) and just over a metre high
(1.09m) with an impressive supercar design sporting wide air intakes, rear air-diffuser, horizontal LED headlamps, gull wing doors and diamond-effect 21inch aluminium wheels. Inside the cabin offers a refined racing experience with copper, steel and black leather finishes combined with hi-tech racing controls.
The GTbyCITROÃ‹N will be making its UK show debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (3-5 July) and will climb the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill as part of the Sunday Times Supercar Run.
I wouldn’t mind driving these cars around the streets of London.
