and now The Spy Who Loved Me Lotus Esprit Series 1 ‘Submarine’ Car CAN BE YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this car was one of six Esprit body shells used in the making of the film, but the only one to be built into a fully operational, self-propelled ‘submarine’.  at the time, the car was said to have cost over $100,000 to create (equivalent to nearly a half million dollars today)

  • ability to turn into a submarine, complete with a telescopic periscope, retractable wheels, four control fins, four rear propellers and two stabilizing fins (rudders)
  • liquid cement-spraying jets behind the rear license plate on land and a squid-like ink/oil-spraying jet for underwater use
  • mine dispenser under the car
  • two under-bonnet harpoons
  • four under-bonnet heat-seeking missile launchers (for underwater use)
  • four surface-to-air radar-guided missiles
