Citroën GT Priced at $1.8 Million, Six to be Produced

GTplanet reports:

"Polyphony Digital's Citroën GT is set to become one of the most expensive "production cars" sold today, coming in at £1.1 million pounds or approximately $1.8 million U.S. dollars.

AutoCar got the scoop from "senior inside sources", who revealed that only six of the cars will be made - all of which will be powered by either a "Ford or GM V8?. That's considerably less than the 20 production models that were hinted at before, but according to AutoCar, "most of the concept's features should make the final production version, including the carbon-fibre construction and eccentric interior details such as the copper trim." Sweet! The final production version of the car is expected to be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

While you're saving up, check out this video showing the GT's recent tour around London."

That thing looks pretty insane. Sounds really nice too.

hay3402d ago

The car looks fantastic. And hey, we got some gameplay movies of GT5!

TheHater3402d ago

Actually that from GT5:P

snaz273402d ago (Edited 3402d ago )

i guessing something like... "meh its ok looking, but if WE designed it then wow it would be the best looking car EVER!" LOL... so im guessing as PD designed it then this will be exclusive to GT5? if GT5 does have damage across the board then i look forward to smashing that car up! lmao... there is no need for a car to look soooo god damn good! anyone fancy starting a pyramid scheme? 11 of you give me £100,000 yeah and...... oh well it was worth a shot! lol

EDIT: at below... theres always 1 ay! lol you dont work for turn 10 do you? lmao

EDIT AGAIN: at below... we all want a release date but you do want the game to be the best it can be dont you? anyway i actually do think we will see GT5 this year, i just cant see them not capitalizing on holiday sales. so dont fret mate lol.

Greywulf3402d ago (Edited 3402d ago )

looks like a transformers head.

I'm glad PD is creating a supercar, but...

wheres my release date bishes???

edit:

turn10, nope. Just saying.. it looks ok.. but as far as extreme design goes, lamborghini/lexus takes the cake imo. the gran turismo citroen is just a bit too.. tech? Looks like you'd be hurting if someone ding'd ya. lotsa thin parts that all have to fit perfectly.

Ninver3402d ago

Hmm i can't recall the last time forza help create a car that cost this much. Hell i can't even remember the last time real professional race drivers referred to it as the ultimate sim, and a preferred choice.

snaz273402d ago

too tech? well it is a futuristic looking supercar so i guess so, but i still dont see how you could call it meh lmao, like you wouldnt wanna drive round in it? and ofcourse you would be hurting if someone dinged ya! it costs over a million!!! you would even in a car that cost £100,000 wouldnt you? but if you could afford this car then im sure you could also afford the repairs so it no biggy for them really is it?

Greywulf3402d ago

and enjoy the bouncy ride.. Its fast, but it doesn't tickle my fancy. calm down.

snaz273402d ago

so your saying you would only wanna drive it on a race curcuit? cos its fast? and you wouldnt atall enjoy the buzz of just driving it round town? do you realise how much fanny you would get with a car like that!? lmao (checks to see if GF is watching... nope cool cool) the car looks awesome mate i think your opinion although valid would most certainly be in the minority.

Carl14123402d ago

I don't care how much it costs, I WANT ONE

/sells his house and commits several types of fraud in order to buy it

jammy_703402d ago

this i'll be on top gear soon then..... the best car programme in the world!

4pocalyps33402d ago

dammit i'm only.....$1.8m short....anyone want to buy it me? its my bday next month xD

Greywulf3402d ago (Edited 3402d ago )

..thats what I meant.. as far as what you're saying... (cow noise) I thought it was going to have some hybrid powerplant.

not a v8 ford.. its not going to be as fast as an F1 car like that.

sniper-squeak3402d ago

...I was getting confused with the gameplay and real-life.
I think it's great that this is GT related... just shows how popular the franchise is.

socomnick3402d ago

That is one ugly looking car. Interior is horrid, the car is vastly underpowered and its amazingly expensive. :/ 1.8 million are they retarded. I rather spend that much and buy 4 , v12 powered lambos, and avoid this weak v8 powered car. or I rather get a 2010 audi r8 v10.

Carl14123401d ago

Bet you would be singing its praises if it was made with the Forza guys though

OGharryjoysticks3401d ago

Where's the Forza car? GT rules!!

PirateThom3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

It is underpowered though. The original concept model was powered by 4 fuel cells and got 789bhp, it's also more expensive than a Veyron and double the cost of an auction Enzo.

Plus, can you imagine spending that much on a Citroen?

It's a limited edition, though, which is where most of that cost is coming from, but the final, production version is severely underpowered at a suspected 500bhp, unless they have some technical wizardy to increase the power from the engine or make the car lighter (for better power or weight ratio). It's a nice looking car though, Polyphony/Citroens designers made a nice looking car, but I'm guessing the already high cost is why only 6 are being made and why it's been gimped.

FamilyGuy3401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

THIS is why Forza in incomparable to the GT series.

Just looking at it's friggin headlights. You know you'd stop and stare if you saw one. It's not often you see a concept car driving on a public street.

I could imagine someone throwing a rock at it just for the thrill of getting away with it.

FlameBaitGod3401d ago

Ima buy me one of these............... when i get the $ on GT5 that is !

aaron58293401d ago

Wow, i didnt know you drove it before...

UNDERPOWERED ?!?! LOL !!

TheReaper423401d ago (Edited 3401d ago )

We will all be driving this baby come November 2009. *wink wink* Only on the PS3. This car and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640 is hot!~

DaTruth3401d ago

You wouldn't be hurtin' if it got dinged because of the carbon fibre construction and is also the reason the car is not overpriced!

DevastationEve3402d ago
