You Can Buy James Bond's Submarine Lotus Espirit For $1 Million

If you're lucky enough to own a hoverboard and a 55,000 core computer, you might be scratching around for something to stick on your Christmas list.

Well search no longer, we have the answer: a genuine 1977 Lotus Esprit S1, which was also once driven by James Bond.

Also, it's a submarine.

Well, kinda. This incredible artefact is an actual prop from the 1977 James Bond movie 'The Spy Who Loved Me', and will only cost you $1 million on eBay to get your hands on.

The item - which as the oddly misspelled description points out is real, though not road worthy or drivable in its current state - was posted by the current owner The Dezer Hollywood Cars Museum, following a restoration on the US TV show American Restoration.

The car is actually one of six models used for the film shoot, some of which were actual submarines with a Lotus shell built around it, others of which were actual cars. Three of the cars still exist.

So yes, there are other items like this out there - but you'll be in good company if you buy it. Billionaire Space X and Tesla founder Elon Musk has one, and reportedly is planning to rebuild the car so that it can actually transform into a submarine and drive under water.
