GQ by Citroen Concept

Carmaker Citroen developed a new concept, the GQbyCITROEN. British designer, Mark Lloyd took a new look at the GT theme and integrated it with a typical Citroen design approach bringing the GQbyCITROEN from design outline to concept reality. The model features classically complex elements and contemporary styling with a sculpted front end, rounded rear, strong body contours and sleek concave rear windscreen. The access in the cabin is made by rear coach doors and reveals a spacious, comfortable and futuristic cabin. The bespoke design is being completed by interior detailing and upholstery selections all provided by Patrik Grant, the Creative Director of Savile Row tailors. Other key requirements for the project are dynamic performance and environmental responsibility. Under the hood it hides a plug-in hybrid with a 1.598cc, 4-cylinder direct injection petrol engine. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds and to reach an electronically limited speed of 155 mph. The CO2 emission level reaches 80 g/km. thanks to the skills of a Savile Row tailor concerning the interior of the car, the specialists have achieved that bespoke, fitted feel, both inside and out. The GQbyCITROEN has performance, but it for traveling, not for racing. It is featured in the April issue of GQ out March 4th 2010.
