Insiders confirm six cars will be built, costing around £1.1 million
30 June 2009

Citroen has decided to put the GT supercar concept into limited production, according to senior inside sources.

The project was believed to have been given the green light last week by the company’s product boss Vincent Besson.

However, only six Citroen GTs will be made, all with a price tag believed to be around £1.1 million pounds.

Designed by Takumi Yamamoto, the concept was originally built to tie in with the Gran Turismo 5 Playstation game.

However a senior Citroen source said that most of the concept’s features should make the final production version, including the carbon-fibre construction and eccentric interior details such as the copper trim.

One question mark remaining though is what motor the mid-engined GT will be powered by.

Besson has already admitted that it will either be a Ford or GM V8, with at least 500bhp, possibly allied to a paddle-shift manual 'box.

The engine source and final technical details are likely to be announced when the final production version is revealed at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
