If you've got a seven figures to spend on an exotic supercar, there are plenty of companies that will be glad to help out. Between the Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Reventon, Aston Martin One-77, and Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss, supercars keep getting more and more expensive. But even in these difficult financial times, there appears to be a wealth of wealthy individuals looking for new ways to spend their money. And the latest to (potentially) join the fold is probably one of the last automakers you'd expect: Citroen.
Although the French automaker is working on entering the premium market with its new DS line, what you see here is another beast entirely. Called the GTbyCitroen, the concept car was a joint effort between the carmaker and the creators of the popular Gran Turismo video game series on Sony Playstation. The car was unveiled at the 2008 Paris Auto Salon, but aside from making it into the latest version of the game, that's about as far as it was ever meant to go. However Citroen reports that there have been sufficient inquiries from interested parties to consider actually building it in limited quantities: 15 to be exact, at a price of one million euros apiece. Citroen says it will have made its decision within the next four weeks, so stay tuned.
