One of the wackier offerings at the Paris show is the Citroen GT, an extreme looking supercar concept that show visitors can ‘drive’ via a simulator on the show stand.
The official pitch is that the GT is designed to bring the real and virtual worlds together, and it has been co-created with software company Polyphony, the makers of the Gran Turismo PlayStation franchise.
Citroen won’t be building a production version of the car itself, but it will feature in a forthcoming incarnation of Gran Turismo. The concept features 21-inch diamond effect alloy wheels, gullwing doors and a moveable spoiler.
In its virtual incarnation, the GT is powered by an ‘electric drivetrain powered by a fuel cell, totally eliminating pollutant emissions.’ Which is very commendable, but we’ll save our praise until Citroen manages to do it in real life.
