Citroën, together with the makers of the Gran Turismo video game series, has created a new concept car dubbed the GTbyCitroën.

The French automaker will display the concept on its stands at the Paris Auto Show this week. The concept was developed as part of the promotion for the 5th title in the long-running Playstation game and will feature as an optional model in it.

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

The car’s body features a muscular look with a large wraparound windscreen, blue LED head-lights, and slim carbon fiber side mirrors. Inside, there are two padded racing seats finished in black leather and fitted with four point harnesses. The cabin has also been accented with copper and steel highlights. For the driver there is a red LED head-up display and white backlit instrument panel.

While there are no plans to build the GTbyCitroën, visitors at the show will be able to drive the concept on a life-size simulator on Citroën’s stands.
