Meet the super Citroen that’s a real play station! This striking concept demonstrates what can happen when the worlds of computer gaming and car design come together.Rivalling any Ferrari or Lamborghini for visual drama, the GTbyCitroen – to give it its full name – was first seen at October’s Paris Motor Show. Now, it has hit the road, and Auto Express got behind the wheel for an exclusive drive.
The GT is here thanks to the passion of two enthusiasts: Citroen designer Takumi Yamamoto and the boss of Polyphony Digital – the firm behind the award-winning Sony PlayStation racing game, Gran Turismo – Kazunori Yamauchi. Essentially, the pair collaborated to create a supercar not for the road, but for the computer screen. Several sketches later, the GT was born. Yet they weren’t content with having an exclusive machine for the best-selling game – so Citroen decided to build the working concept you see here.
