GTbyCITROňN TO TACKLE GOODWOOD HILL
The striking GTbyCitroŽn supercar concept will make its UK
debut climbing the famous 1.16-mile Goodwood Hill at this year’s
Festival of Speed (3-5 July).
Getting in some practice for the Festival of Speed, GTbyCITROňN has
been busy completing laps of honour at both the NŁrburgring and Le Mans
24 hour endurance races. The 2008 Louis Vuitton Classic Concept Award
winner took to the Le Mans circuit this weekend with 150 cars for the
famous parade lap.
The car first hit the headlines at the Paris Motorshow last October
where the unique partnership between CitroŽn and Polyphony, designer of
the driving simulation game Gran Turismo5 on the Playstation 3,
unveiled the real world replica of the digital vehicle.
Measuring nearly five-metres long (4.96m), and just over a metre high
(1.09m), the GTbyCitroŽn is characterised by a large wraparound
windscreen which flows into the roof and on into the rear mobile
airfoil. The dynamic supercar feel is further enhanced by wide air
intakes, a flat underside, rear air-diffuser, clear-cut horizontal
headlamps, gullwing doors and diamond-effect 21 inch aluminium wheels.
The GTbyCitroŽn will climb the Goodwood Hill as part of the Sunday
Times Supercar Run.
Admission to the Goodwood Festival of Speed is by advance
ticket only. To order advance tickets, please contact the Ticket
