Well, don't let that unimaginative name of the car puts you off. The design of the concept is a far cry from the word unimaginative. For the sake of the majority Singaporeans, GQ is UK's leading monthly men's magazine. The GQbyCITROËN concept is a collaboration between Dylan Jones, GQ's editor, and Mark Lloyd, a British designer who is most recently credited for the new Citroën DS3. And it looks like GQ certainly knows what a fashionable man hopes to see in his parking lot.
The GQbyCITROËN concept is designed to be a Grand Tourer, rather than an all-out sports car. According to Lloyd, the concept is created to represent a gentleman's car which has the performance and is well suited for travelling. The cabin, accessed by rear-hinged coach doors, features a futuristic yet stylish cabin, with detailing and upholstery selected by Patrick Grant, the creative director for E. Tautz, a men's tailor found in the prestigious Savile Row in London.
The car is powered by both a plug-in hybrid system as well as a 1.6-liter inline-four with direct injection, allowing it to achieve a 0-60mph sprint in just 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. The GQbyCITROËN makes its official debut in the April issue of GQ. Scroll down to see the rest of the concept's images if you wish to save your money on the magazine.
