The GQbyCitroen is an eye-catching concept car which was unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The car is the result of a collaboration between GQ magazine - a publication which tells indecisive men what to buy and how to act, and the French car maker Citroen.

The joint effort came about after GQ’s editor, Dylan Jones, set Citroen a brief to design a concept car which would appeal strongly to the male demographic. He said of the design: "I wanted something practical, something cool, and something idiosyncratic – i.e. something surprising that didn't just look like a concept car. The GQ car needed to have the ‘want’ factor, but it also needed to look, feel and ‘drive’ like the sort of car no sane man could choose to ignore. We think it looks very very special."

The man responsible for turning the GQbyCITROEN into a reality was Citroen designer Mark Lloyd. Along with a team of designers Lloyd set about creating a car which reinterpreted the GT theme, and which had unmistakable Citroen design pedigree. The design team also tried to give the concept an understated look, one that would draw admiration but that didn't look overly indulgent. This was in an attempt to get the car to fit better in a post world recession environment.

The car’s cabin is accessed by rear coach doors and reveals a spacious, comfortable and futuristic cabin. Completing the car’s bespoke styling, the interior detailing and upholstery selections were provided by Patrick Grant, the Creative Director of prestigious Savile Row tailors, E.Tautz.

The GQbyCitroen features a hybrid drivetrain which utilizes a 1.6 litre 4 cylinder direct injection engine and a plug-in rechargeable battery coupled to an electric motor. The speculated performance numbers come in at 4.5 seconds to 60 mph, and 155 mph for the top speed.
