Is the GT by Citroen Race Car worth it?

15 replies 2777 views Edited Jan 1, 2011

Has anybody purchased the GT by Citroen Race Car? Is it worth the 5.5 million credits? I already own a Peugeot 908 HDI FAP, a Ford GT LM Race Car spec II, a Formula GT and a bunch of other race cars that I don't ever drive. The Citroen looks bad ass. Should I buy it???

No, you should win it.  A free GT by Citroen is so much better than one that costs 5.5 million.

Here's the deal with the GT by Citroen Race car.....  It does look amazing...  No doubt about that.  It even handles great!  Here's the problem....  It just isn't that fast.  Couldn't win the "like the wind" race with it...  Simply not fast enough.  Do not buy it.  I got mine as a prize car for the lvl 21 prize car ticket..  Lucked out, I guess...  It is great to look at, but don't waste your money if your want to win races with it......

Yes, I have purchased the GT by Citroen. It is NOT worth 5,600,000 credits! I have never been more disappointed with a car. I did every upgrade available on it and it still will not even break 700hp. Total piece of junk, do not buy it. There is a video on you tube with a kid racing it side by side with a Pagini and the kid says the GT beats the Zonda. This video is false the Zonda would destroy the GT easily.

Do you judge every car by how much horsepower it has? The car drives great...

Hey! It'll win at the 9 hour endurance race! against cars with less horse power and non-race equipped suspension and tires.

I won mine and don't use it for anything now. I run the 9 hour event overnight while I sleep to gain experience points and some credits. I use the S 2000 turbo and it wins every time at less than 250k modded (approximately).

I agree that the Citroen racecar looks wicked, but it just down right sucks in my opinion. I was shocked to find out it topped out at 650 hp.

I'd say win it.  For me, this car was only useful in just adding mileage to the car and winning the Dream Car Championship over and over or winning Endurance races.  I only have it because I want to collect all the race cars in the game.
