GTbyCitroen doing the rounds before production

GTbyCitroen doing the rounds before production

GT Citroen fq

At last year’s Paris Motor Show, Citroen stunned everyone with a dramatically styled supercar called the GTbyCitroen. In the following months, Citroen revealed it would produce a limited run of the cars. And in May it was announced that the low-slung and futuristic vehicle would be appearing at some of motorsport’s most prestigious events. The third and final stop left on the schedule is the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which runs July 3-5 at the legendary UK location.

The GTbyCitroën will climb the Goodwood Hill as part of the Sunday Times Supercar Run. The famous 1.16-mile dash will play host to some of the worlds most incredible cars, both past and present, each year. But the GTbyCitroen is used to sharing the stage with the biggest names in the business by now.

Measuring up at 4.96m, and just 1.09m high, the GTbyCitroën features a large wraparound windscreen which flows into the roof and on into the distinctive rear styling. The dynamic supercar effect is further enhanced by wide air intakes, a flat underside, rear air-diffuser, squinting horizontal headlamps, gullwing doors and diamond-effect 21-inch alloys.

Starting with the 24 Hours Nurburgring race on May 23, the GTbyCitroen took a single parade lap around the circuit. Then just this past weekend, the supercar joined a line of others at Le Mans for the ‘Grande Parade des Pilotes’, a presentation of the 150 drivers and 50 teams taking part in the actual competitive portion of the 24-hour event race weekend.

Despite all the showing off, there’s still no clear roadmap from Citroen on when the supercar will make it to its limited production run. An announcement may come at Goodwood, but it’s no certainty.
