Having already participated at both the Nurburgring and Le Mans 24 hour endurance races by completing ‘honorary laps’, Citroen’s dramatic GTbyCitroen supercar concept will now make its UK debut climbing the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill at this year’s Festival of Speed on July 3. Initially created in collaboration with Polyphony as a digital supercar for the Gran Turismo5 racing game on Sony’s Playstation 3, the GTbyCitroen came to life at last year’s Paris Motorshow.

And even though Citroen had no intention of building the car for production, due to the extremely positive reactions from the public and the media alike, the French firm is now considering whether or not to go ahead with the GT building a limited run of a dozen or so models.

The aggressively styled French GT measures nearly five-meters in length (4.96m), and just over a meter high (1.09m). Special features include a wraparound windscreen that flows into the roof and on into the rear mobile airfoil, a flat underside, gullwing-style doors and diamond-effect 21 inch aluminum wheels. The concept version of the supercar uses electric motors but if it is to enter production, Citroen will use a conventional gasoline powertrain.
