Production Cancelled for Polyphony Digital’s Citroën GT

Sad news: remember the Polyphony Digital-designed supercar, the Citroën GT? After it was first revealed in an update to GT5 Prologue, it was widely publicized and praised in the media as the physical prototype made its way around the world at various car shows and events. It even floated around Venice, and this video I uploaded to YouTube (also embedded below) of the car driving around the streets of London has received more than 1.5 million views.

There was so much interest in the car, Citroën actually decided to build it. Despite its popularity, though, it wasn’t meant to be, as the latest reports (thanks for the tip, paskowitz!) confirm production has been cancelled. The reasons cited for dropping the car are not surprising: although the GT was expected to be priced north of €1 million, it wouldn’t have been profitable enough for the company, which has decided to focus its time and resources on other models that will “bring in more money”.

Oh well, more money and focus towards making this game even awesomer.

captain-obvious2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

a car like this should never make it to the streets

it should be only 3 of those 1 in GT games ,the one that is on Polyphony Digital’s HQ and the last one in Citroën show rooms

Redempteur2649d ago

because he is trolling ? do you expect something else from a troll ..

everytime i see one , their INT stats are always so low ...

DigitalAnalog2649d ago

Because he finally realizes that no matter how "l337" his gaming setup is....

He would have to face the fact that he would NEVER play the Real Driving Simulator..

on a platform that is most notable for Sims.

-End statement

Its even more amazing in the metal, saw it at a car show last year. The interior is beserk though, theres no way it could go into production with the interior it had. The whole thing was an interesting exercise but a far fetched one really

iPad2649d ago

I think it will be in Gran Turismo 6.

PD is gonna get a whole lot of cash when GT5 releases.

PS3Freak2649d ago

i think the rear end is ugly. the rest is nice though.

PirateThom2649d ago

It's not designed for looks though, it's designed solely for aerodynamics.

The inside is nicer than the outside.

it's the only good car to come out of France :D

OneSneakyMofo2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

There are only two good things to come out of France ever, and I mean EVER: French Fries and this car.

ThatArtGuy2649d ago

Statue of Liberty, French maid outfits, Sophie Marceau...

LordStig2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

thats only one mate lol

ThatArtGuy2649d ago

Oh, and "French" fries came from Belgium.

OneSneakyMofo2649d ago

Damn, France just sucks even more without having invented French Fries.

Perkel2649d ago


Peguot 205 WRC Group B car.

DaRazorback2649d ago

not created in France. If they were even the British would call them that. But they call them chips. They were actually created by an american.

rekonizakilla2649d ago

69's, french kiss, braille and the guillotine. in order of importance.

ProjectVulcan2648d ago (Edited 2648d ago )

Sooooo many great french cars the americans wouldnt know about. Its like no one here has even heard of Bugatti. The royale, 35, 57, EB110, Veyron etc etc. Or the Citroen DS, SM, Traction avant, Renault A610, all those wonderful hot hatches like the volcane, clio williams and V6, 205 TI16 and just even the Gti, 106 rallye, 306 GTI6, and peugeots drop dead gorgeous coupes like the 504 and 406. Alpine A110, Hispano suizas, etc etc. Theres lots of groundbreaking cars and technological marvels and beautiful machines and epic handling cars from france.

They also built the greatest passenger aircraft ever flown with the british.

Chips werent invented by an american, i LOL'd at that.
