This car was parked where I work last week for the manufacturer to film it driving round Londons streets and interior filming/interviews. Anyone know what it is and/or why it was made?

It sounded incredible, looked stunning and ill probably never see one ever again :(

There seems to be literally no rake in the front windscreen. How the hell do you see owt? Periscope??
Good point, I sat in the Lightening GT the other week and thats the final pre-production model and you couldnt see much road ahead. Maybe thats the way forward...:lol:

The car was pretty much designed and built for the Gran Turismo game as thay apparently need to have a 'real' car to get all of the data from. More of a publicity stunt for both I feel. Obviousely it is a Citreon, in Autocar the other week they said that if they can line up 10 - 20 buyers they would make a limited run of them. It looks ok for what it would no doubt cost.

It's just as well the roads are getting quieter and people are far more curtious than in the past. :cry:
It must have been hell in the 50's.

yeah it's the Citroen concept car developed for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (?) on the PS3 ... as far as I'm aware the game car came first and they they decided to realise it as a concept for a motorshow (Paris ?)

they're now talking about making a few of them

I spoke to one of the guys who was with it (he may have said it wrong), he said that it was designed for GT5

yeah Gran Turismo for the last couple of versions had these wierd specifically design concept cars ... I think it was GT4 that had the really wierd Nike One concept which was one of these really 'futuristic' things that the Art Students come up with with zero consideration to engineering ... well real world engineering!

If it's a Citroen it'll be back at the dealers within a week and suffer worse depreciation than an Alfa ! :lol:
