Citroën’s spectacular supercar concept, the GTbyCITROËN, has taken to the streets of central London to visit parts of the ‘street circuit’ made famous by the video game Gran Turismo, for which the car was designed.
Incorporating some of the capital’s most famous landmarks, the virtual supercar swapped pixels for pavement as it toured Regent Street, rounded Trafalgar Square and cruised down the Mall past Buckingham Palace.
This public showcase is just a short teaser of what is to come, with the concept set to make its UK show debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed where it will climb the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill as part of the Sunday Times Supercar Run.
The concept is a result of a unique partnership between Citroën and Polyphony Digital Inc., creators of the Gran Turismo game series, which for many will be the only way to get behind the wheel of this one-off supercar.
In preparation for the Festival of Speed, the concept has also been busy completing a lap of honour at both the Nürburgring and Le Mans 24 hour endurance races.
