The Spy Who Loved Me Corgi James Bond Lotus Esprit Submarine Car
As James Bond’s Lotus Esprit, fondly known as ‘Wet Nellie‘, plunged into the waters in the 1977 classic The Spy Who Loved Me, audiences worldwide sat in awe at this now iconic car. Taking second place only to the illustrious Aston Martin DB5, this car-submarine hybrid became a symbol of technological wonderment and cinematic magic.
The real Lotus Esprit Submarine Car is now in the hands of tech visionary Elon Musk, who envisions fusing it with Tesla technology to bridge the gap between fiction and reality. And while nobody can financially compete with Elon Musk, this Lotus Espirit car from Corgi is great for any keen collector.
