Oh my. A prototype version of my favourite car of all time up for sale! I’ve had to screengrab because the embedded plugin won’t translate to the blog.

I recommend a visit to the actual site for more fabulous photos and a short video of this machine, the Citroën SM Espace prototype—one of two prototypes built in 1971. The auction site requires Flash, sadly.

I’ve been in love with the SM since childhood. The shape, the futuristic design, and the colour in this particular case… j’adore. I wish I could own one.

A “standard” model came up for sale in the UK recently. It was the same electric metallic blue, and was available for a cool £29,000. Truly a classic collector’s car, and out of my price bracket.

More information about the Citroën SM on Wikipedia.
