The third James Bond film in which the main role was played by Roger Moore probably is one of the five most popular film of the popular franchise and it is largely thanks to the many underwater scenes in which is main star Lotus. Esprit S1, or “Wet Nelly,” as we previously announced was offered on sale on RM Auction on Monday. The car has been sold for 550,000 pounds (about $935,500), less than had been expected. It had been expected to sell for between 650,000 and 950,000 pounds.
“We have a great track record in selling incredible and iconic movie cars, and this particular Lotus is certainly up there amongst the most famous cars of all time,” RM Managing Director Max Girardo said in a statement.
