Aside from the iconic Aston Martin DB5, the Lotus Esprit submarine car could be the most well known vehicle from the James Bond movies.

Used during the 1977 classic film entitled ‘The Spy Who Loved Me,’ the lines recited to Major Anya Amasova will never be forgotten. “Can you swim?” Bond calmly questioned as the two headed off the shipping dock while being hunted down by a helicopter. Now the fully operational vehicle is hitting the auction block, set to sell to the highest bidder. Built by the team at Perry Oceanographic, the fully functional submersible is sure to fetch a pretty penny. Check out the scene from the movie below.
