Citroen, together with the makers of the Sony Playstation game Gran Turismo, created a new GT concept car named the ‘GTbyCitroen’ that went on display at the Paris Motor Show back in October. The concept was developed as part of the promotion for the 5th title in the long-running Gran Turismo racing simulation, but apart from being available as a special car in the game there were no real future plans for it.

According to this report, the dramatically styled concept is rumored to be scheduled for production in an extremely limited run of just 20 cars. The new design director for PSA Peugeot Citroen, Jean-Pierre Ploué, has allegedly indicated that there are production plans for it, although no other details have been reported.

At almost five metres long, the GTbyCitroen features a full race car interior, 21in aluminum wheels, gullwing doors, an adjustable spoiler, and a mid-engine design. While the show car was purely a design study with no working internals, the version in the game features an electric drivetrain powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.
