Citroen shows off new GQ inspired concept

Citroen shows off new GQ inspired concept

In 2008 the GTbyCitroen concept car proved one of the mot popular concepts of the year. Now the French automaker has unveiled a brand new concept car designed for the compact sports car segment.

This new concept was developed in partnership with fashion-orientated GQ magazine and has been designed to provide “the ultimate gentleman’s drive”.

The new concept follows the naming convention and is called the GQ by Citroen. Power supposedly comes from an advanced plug-in hybrid drivetrain consisting of a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. It’s claimed the car can accelerate from 0-100 kph in 4.5 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250kph. But those performance figures may be a touch far fetched.

Groups who worked on the car included GQ editor Dylan Jones, interior stylist Patrick Grant and tailors from London’s Savile Row.

The Citroen GQ concept will be unveiled at a special event in London next week so stay tuned for an update.
