GTbyCitroen Goes in Production
Obviously, there are only a couple of details available at this time so we can't say for sure which are the features seen on the concept that will also reach the production model. However, a Citroen insider told the aforementioned source that the production form of GTbyCitroen will boast many of the features available on the concept, including most of the carbon fiber-made parts and interior details.
As for the engine, nobody knows for sure which will be the unit to power the supercar but Besson initially hinted that the company will choose a V8 unit designed by either Ford or General Motors. The generated output will be at least 500 horsepower, with a manual gearbox likely to make the final production version. The reason for a borrowed engine? It would be too expensive to build a new engine, especially for a limited edition of only six units.
The car will be officially displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September but there's no confirmed date for when the car will go on sale.
Back in March, Vincent Besson also hinted that GTbyCitroen could go in production but, at that time, the company was considering a limited series of up to twenty units. "We are now thinking of a limited run, possibly as many as 20 units," he told Autocar at that time.
