GTbyCITROEN takes tiki tour of London


Citroen's concept supercar, the GTbyCITROEN, took to the streets of central London on Tuesday to recreate part of the 'street circuit' featured in the Playstation game Gran Turismo

Taking in some of the town'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 partnership between Citroën and Polyphony Digital Inc., a subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment, the GTbyCITROËN 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 21-inch aluminium wheels. Inside the cabin copper, steel and black leather finishes combined with hi-tech racing controls offer a racing experience.

The GTbyCITROËN 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.
