In June of last year Citroen announced plans to put the GT by Citroen concept into production. It was supposed to be limited to only six units and priced for sale at $1.8 Million each. Well, that’s not going to happen anymore! Citroen’s plans for a production version have been dropped. Citroen, instead, has decided to focus on products that will bring in more money.
The final production version was supposed to be completely inspired by the concept, including the carbon-fiber construction and eccentric interior details such as the copper trim. Under the hood there was supposed to be the V8 engine found in the Ford GT.
The concept was designed for Gran Turismo 5. It features an electric drive train powered by a fuel cell with no pollutant emissions. It is a car designed to square up to the strongest competition. The car is the result of a partnership between Citroën and Polyphony, designer of the driving simulation game Gran Turismo 5 on Playstation 3.
