James Bond car sells for $1M
September 10 , 2013
The James Bond car used for underwater scenes seems to be hit only with fans and not car collectors.
Its price had been expected to be between $990,000 and $1.45M but the final sales price inclusive of sales commission ended up being only $967,120.
The reason for this soft price is not clear yet since the car is extremely famous from the silver screen but expert said the fact that the car is non functional and lacks wheels could have played a role in terms of not being attractive to the buyers. This car is only one of the eight versions of the Lotus shown in "The Spy Who Loved Me" used only in the underwater scenes.
The "submarine car" was sold by RM Auctions in London.
