This Is Your Chance To Buy James Bond’s Actual, Working Submarine Car
The Lotus has never been offered for sale, and spent much of its life forgotten in a Long Island storage unit. In 1989, a couple bought the unit without knowing its contents, only to find one of the coolest cars in movie history.
The auction house has not yet listed an expected sale price, but the last iconic Bond car it put under the hammer, the DB5 driven by Sean Connery in “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball,” sold in 2010 for £2.9 million ($4.4 million).
The submarine car was known as “Wet Nellie” during filming, and was built for more than $100,00 (approximately $500,000 today) from the shell of the Lotus Esprit.
