Nothing to do in September?
One of the most famous cars of all time – James Bond’s Lotus Espri “Submarine Car” from The Spy Who Loved Me – hits the auction block Sep 8-9 in London.
Known as “Wet Nellie” on set, the white Lotus sprouted fins and turned into a submarine during a famous 007 underwater sequence filmed in the Bahamas.
Brit — and now “Sir” — Roger Moore played Bond in the film, but the man behind the wheel of the submerged Lotus was actually Don Griffin, a retired U.S. Navy Seal.
