    Citroen GT, real or not?

    In the video game, this car is pretty quick, but will it hit the streets?

    http://www.autoblog.com/2008/12/28/video-citroen-gt-in-motion-in-polish/

    However, to fuel the speculation, some polish guys actualy drove it

    And it has been seen on the street:

    In Gran Turismo it has stepless transmission, and actually is faster than the Ferrari F2007 on some tracks:

    Is the guy throttle blipping with his right thumb?

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    I don't know, maybe it has something to do with the stepless transmission?

    The comparison Citroen GT vs. F2007 however is lame: In the game, the Ferrari hits the rev limiter at around 340 kph, no sane person would drive the daytona oval with that setup.


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    It certainly seems as though he's doing something with his thumb. I have to say thats the noisiest transmission I've heard since the McLaren F1 LM. That is, unless that whining sound is a blower...

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    It seems the transmission is something like this:


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    And here is how it works (jump to 1:17)

    Actually my car has such a gearbox and it is just great (for every day use, don't know about the track).

    However, you can switch to a tip-tronic mode so it behaves like a 6 speed gearbox.


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    Personally I'm not a fan of CVTs.  They just feel weird to drive.

    In the track, not being able to choose a gear and therefore not being able to control the decelleration rate and control the throttle reduces the controllability in the corners.   


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    @Jean: 100% ack. In my car there is an electronic that tries to predict the transmission I want.

    While that's fine for the street (especially in the city), that's not good for driving fast.

    Maybe the citroen guys solved this problem by adding a way to adjust the transmission manually, maybe that's what the polish guy is doing with his thumb? 


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    He seemed to be doing it constantly though...   I am really curious can we dig more about this?  The throttle blip noise matches the movement of his thumb.

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    The guys at autoexpress have a more in depth review, they state the Transmission as "push-button manual, rear-wheel drive".

    So maybe it's a standard transmission after all, and the polish guy is fooling us by constantly changing the gear up and down?

      http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/232110/citroen_gt.html

      Engine: V8 petrol, 560bhp
      Transmission: Push-button manual, rear-wheel drive
      0-60mph: 4.0 seconds (est)
      Top speed: 180mph (est)
    Equipment: Scissor doors, 21-inch alloy wheels, rear diffuser, LED lights front and rear, carbon fibre wing mirrors, copper-effect dashboard

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    Listen to the sound:


    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    Sounds like the Bugatti's engine.

    How many cylinders does that thing have. It's definitely more than 8.

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    It's an American V8, Ford I think. Nothing to get excited about...

    Re: Citroen GT, real or not?

    Heist:

    Sounds like the Bugatti's engine.

    How many cylinders does that thing have. It's definitely more than 8.

    Or just a V8 running on less than 8 cylinders?
