Sadly this is about a car I didn’t get to ride in up the famous hill.

I was all set to get a spin in Citroen’s outrageous GT supercar concept. But thanks to a technical error, as is the way with concept cars, the thing had to stay rooted in the supercar paddock.

Maybe it was in Citroen’s best interest though. The GT was mobbed all weekend, easily making it the star of the paddock in my book. When the engineers occasionally started it up and revved the 500bhp V8 it even got rounds of applause.

The best news is that they will be making it for real though and, even though there’s only going to be six of them, I’m going to be pitching hard for a go in a ‘proper’ one.
