Citroen has sent their real driving simulator inspired GT Concept to London in order to re-create a part of the street circuit that goes by the same name as the city, from the latest installment of Gran Turismo, GT5 Prologue. The Citroen concept went for a spin around Piccadilly Circus, blasted down Regent Street, hung the back end out going into Trafalgar Square and then made it to Buckingham Palace just in time for some tea with the Queen. Well, maybe it wasn’t so dramatic, but that is how we are replaying it on our Play Station 3s.
Until we finally get to see a production version, this recreation of the virtual GT driving experience is all we can hope for from the concept.
Measuring in at almost fifteen feet in length and just over three feet tall, the GTbyCITROEN is set apart from the rest of the road going vehicles on the market by a large wraparound windscreen that flows from the front of the vehicle all the way into the rear airfoil. The body is also enhanced by a series of large air intakes at the front and the side, horizontal headlamps and diamond-effect 21 inch rims. Did we mention that this next generation super car is also a gullwing?
