No matter how luxurious your dream car is, it probably can’t drive under water. Unless you’re the proud new owner of James Bond’s submarine car from “The Spy Who Loved Me.”

Piloted by Roger Moore as 007, the Lotus Esprit became famous in the 1977 film for vaulting into the sea, promptly converting to submarine mode, and dispatching a few baddies beneath the waves.

But after languishing in a Long Island storage locker, the aqua-car has seen the light of day again, selling for $968,000 with fees at a London auction.
