Turning James Bond’s Car Into a Working Submarine

It’s not about just being rich, it’s about being passionate. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently converted James Bond’s vehicle into a working submarine, after winning the car at an auction with a $866,000 bid.

The Lotus Esprit, the highlight vehicle in the 1977 Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me is famous for the stunt in which it is driven into the ocean off a dock by Bond and morphs into a submarine – propellers, fins and all.  Musk decided to work on something he always wanted: turning this wild and magnificent fictional contraption into a reality.
