The Lotus Esprit Submarine From 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me Was Lost In A Storage Shed

United Artists

The Spy Who Loved Me is one of the wildest James Bond films that’s ever been released. Not only does it feature a future Beatle wife, but it has the Lotus Esprit, a must have for any spy worth their salt. These Esprits are big gets for collectors, and they rarely pop up for auction - and when they do they’re snatched up as quickly as possible.

The submarine version of the car was lost to time until a contractor found it under a bunch of blankets in a storage shed. In 2013 when the submarine version of the car came to the surface, Tesla founder Elon Musk snatched it up for £550,000.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
