GTbyCitroen to Attend the UK Festival of Speed

After it was introduced at the Paris Motor Show last October, French manufacturer's Citroen supercar seems to have fallen in love with road trips. The concept has already been seen completing "laps of honour", as Citroen calls them, at both the Nürburgring and Le Mans 24 hour endurance races.

Now, Citroen will take the GT at the UK Festival of Speed in between July 3 and 5, where it will be put on display until the very last day of the event. Then, the GTbyCitroen will climb the Goodwood Hill as part of the Sunday Times Supercar Run.

If you missed out on the GTbyCitroen story by now, the attached gallery may clear up some things. Measuring 4.96m in length and 1.09m in
height, the video game-inspired GTbyCitroen's most striking feature is the large wraparound windscreen which flows into the roof and on into the rear mobile airfoil.

Large air intakes, a flat underside, rear air-diffuser, clear-cut horizontal headlamps, gullwing doors and diamond-effect 21 inch aluminum wheels are also fitted on the car. In all, the GT doesn't exactly make for something never before seen in the automotive industry.

Why all this fuzz about it then? Well, perhaps because the fact that it is the first vehicle not to travel from reality into the virtual world, but the other way around, makes it unique. Unlikely to ever see production (even if rumor about a limited run series is circling above), the GTbyCitroen will probably remain a show car. A sort of "look what we can do, but we'd rather not".
