£550,000 buys iconic Bond Lotus Espirit
AN iconic car driven by James Bond has been sold for £550,000 at auction.
The Lotus Espirit submarine car appeared on screen opposite Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me.
The vehicle, which was sold at RM Auction in Battersea, South London, was the subject of a fierce bidding war.
When all the fees and costs are paid the winning bidder will fork out £616,000. The vehicle was specially designed for the 1977 film, which saw Bond and Anya Amasova, played by Barbara Bach, use the unusual-looking car to evade an attack by a helicopter.
