Citroen’s GT for the boys

2010-03-08 07:55
How bizarre… Citroën has teamed up with men’s magazine GQ to release a car labeled as the “ultimate gentleman’s drive”.

GQ editor Dylan Jones issued the brief and design team head Mark Lloyd (who is also responsible for the new DS3) created this take on the GT theme.

The project is called GQbyCITROËN and is said to combine sophisticated features with cutting-edge styling.

Access to the car is via coach doors and the car’s bespoke interior detailing includes upholstery by Savile Row tailors E. Tautz.

However, the concept car is not only about captivating looks; it is powered by a plug-in hybrid with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder direct injection petrol engine. This catapults the concept to a theoretical 0 – 100 km/h of around 4.5 seconds while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h. CO2 emissions are just 80 g/km.

GQbyCITROËN, as a study, is quite neat, but is not being shown at any major motor show. It was revealed for the first time in the March issue of UK GQ magazine.
