Bond's Lotus Espirit and Ferris Bueller's Ferrari going up for auction

The Lotus Espirit, James Bond's submersible vehicle from The Spy Who Loved Me and the replica Ferrari from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, will both be going under the hammer this summer.

The Ferrari is designed to resemble a 250 GT Spyder and three of them were built for the film, reports motorauthority.com. Inside the machine is a 7.0-litre Ford V-8 and the man who last owned this particular model was one of the men who helped build it.

However, UK fans will have to travel over to California if they want to see it, as it's being sold at the Mecum auction, which takes place between August 15th to the 17th.

Bond fanboys will only have to travel to London to see the incredible Lotus Espirit at auction though, as topgear.com reports it will be offered up by RM Auctions and it will be on sale between the 8th and 9th of September.

The underwater Espirit was built by Perry Oceanographic in Florida and was driven by retired US Navy SEAL, Don Griffin, in the film. Originally, the car cost over $100,000 to build, that's around $500,000 or £330,000 in today's money.

James Bond's most beloved car, the DB5, sold for £2.9 million a few years ago, so whoever purchases the Espirit should definitely consider investing in a car tracking device.

This Bond car is the only one of its kind and it's the actual model used for filming the underwater scenes only in The Spy Who Loved Me.
