One of the most greatest fictional cars of all time, the Lotus Esprit Submarine seen in The Spy Who Loved Me was lost to the world for years until someone stumbled upon it in Long Island recently. The movie prop went to auction and reportedly sold for around $866,000, and now it has been revealed that Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, is the proud owner of James Bond's sick submersible ride. $866K compared to the $100 that the previous owner got it for is one hell of a price difference, but as far as Bond cars go, this one is pretty special. Too bad he can't drive it under water or shoot missiles at helicopters like in the movie.
