1976 Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me, Movie, 1977. Sold 9/9 £550 000  http://www.007museum.com/lotus_esprit.htm

A submarine car used in the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me has been sold for £550,000.

The Lotus Esprit sold for less than the guide price despite a bidding war between a woman in the auction room and a telephone bidder who took the prized collector’s piece.

The car, said to be fully operational, was used in the underwater scene of the 1977 film starring Roger Moore as 007.

After filming it toured various car shows before being stored in New York.

It was sold at RM Auctions in Battersea, south-west London, for less than the estimated price of between £650,000 and £950,000.

In had previously been auctioned as a blind lot in 1989.

Peter Haynes, from the auction house, said: ”Bearing in mind it is not a car that can be driven on the road, the price just goes to prove the draw that all Bond-related memorabilia has.”

Adele has confirmed she has recorded the theme for the forthcoming James Bond film, Skyfall.

She posted a picture of the song credits on her official Twitter page.

It comes after months of rumours and other people, aside from Adele, discussing it.

Traditionally, Sony Pictures, which distributes the Bond movies, and Eon Productions, the company in charge of Bond, issue a joint press release about who will be singing the theme song.

Sony has repeatedly declined to comment on speculation about the theme.

Adele’s photo appears to show the cover page of the sheet music for the Skyfall theme.

It lists the composers as A. Adkins, the singer’s full name, and P. Epworth – the producer and co-writer of her hit single Rolling In The Deep.
