In the realm of James Bond whips there have been so many memorable cars, including a litany of awesome, gadget-heavy Aston Martins. But nothing compares to the amphibious Lotus Esprit that was featured in 'The Spy Who Loved Me,' which starred Roger Moore as 007. It was futuristic, technically awesome and embodied the spirit of the Bond franchise.
Thanks to RM Auctions, the Esprit, which has been sitting in a parking garage in Long Island for the past 10 years, will be sold at no reserve on September 8 at their annual event in London. In actuality, there were 6 examples built for the film, but this is the only one still in existence, according to RM.
No word on whether the car runs or drives and we can only speculate as to what something like this would fetch at auction ($150,000 to $200,000?).
