Long, slender, French.; We’re not talking about the booth babes at this week’s Paris motor show, but of an upcoming concept that Citroen’s teasing us with.
Yes, Citroen – that same automaker that’s also bringing a rather quirky crossover to the show is also bringing this – the “GT by Citroen.”; While the name suggests what kind of car it will be, it also references a special partnership behind its creation.
Citroen’s designers partnered with the tech-whizzes over at Polyphony Digital, the corporate entity behind the successful Gran Turismo video game.; Though we first heard the two were collaborating at the 2008 Geneva motor show, the Paris venue will be our first look at the finished product.
Judging by these teaser shots, the GT holds some promise.; We see a very sleek car, and the proportions – long front and rear decks, wide body – make us wonder if it happens to be a mid-engine sports car. ;
We’ll know for sure in the next few days.; In the meantime, you can check out this video hosted on Gran Turismo‘s website, and stay with Automobile Magazine for the latest happenings from Paris.
