The Citroen GT Concept was a hit a the Paris Auto Show for being a design concept. The car had plenty of style (some say too much), but there definitely was no substance. It existed as a design from the game Gran Turismo 5, and it was listed in the virtual world as powered by hydrogen fuel cells that release no emissions.
Now it seems Citroen may want to go through its parts bin looking for that hydrogen race engine. Jean-Pierre Ploue, Citroen’s design director, said GT Concept will go into limited production. Ploue didn’t give any indications of a release date, but he did hint that about 20 GT may be built. Whenever the car shows up, we expect it to look just as exotic as the concept but probably powered by a more conventional gas or diesel engine.
