Citröen GT Rocks Paris

The long-shrouded Citröen GT, developed jointly between the French car maker and Polyphony Digital was finally unveiled today at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.  After all the teasing, it doesn’t disappoint, and so far has been well received by both the press and GTPlanet users.  More importantly, we can confirm that the car will be available in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, so we’ll all be driving it before long.  Official word on the powerplant is hard to come by – expect some type of hydrogen/electric technology outputting upwards of 646hp.  According to these screen shots released by Polyphony, the car went around High Speed Ring in 1’01.570, and hit 212 km/h downhill on the Eiger.  What do you think?  Do you like the concept, or would you prefer Polyphony focus more on Gran Turismo 5 development?  Sound off and join the conversation in our forums.
