  2. I bought the Lotus Esprit marine: http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/67297-esprit-submarine-anybody/ I am trying to get it shipped to the southeastern US--Atlanta, Georgia. It could come into any port on the southeastern US coast. The least expensive and most secure method is to share a container with another vehicle. I realize I can send it ro ro (roll on roll off) where it is simply pushed on and strapped down on the deck. I am afraid that the motor and other unique things may be stolen or the entire vehicle itself, given the way it looks. Mine is already at the port in South Hampton. The contact I have at Kingstown Shipping doesn't have anything on the horizon to share a container. Does anyone need to ship a vehicle--car or boat to the southeastern US? Can anyone supply me with contacts for other UK export companies that I might check with as well? Of course I can google places, but I would like to know they are legitimate.
  3. Here's one for a little more. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lotus-Esprit-Fins-Retractable-Wheels-LOTUS-ESPRIT-SUMBMARINE-CAR-FROM-77-JAMES-BOND-SPY-WHO-LOVED-ME-/151364691553?forcerrptr=true&hash=item233e09e661&item=151364691553&pt=US_Cars_Trucks mine actually cruises in the water for $990,000 less.
  4. Nice video about this starts at about 1:30
  5. I am quite excited about it and I made the deal on 07/07 (date on my purchase agreement) exactly 47 years to the day after the movie debuted--07/07/77. It's "relatively" inexpensive as motorized toys go and we all know that he who dies with the most toys wins. if you're not adventurous you may not make it out of this life alive. Oops--that was 37 years to the day after the movie debuted.
  6. Some background on it: http://www.lotusespritworld.com/EOtherstuff/Esprit4theSea.html
  7. As one of the sub shells used in the movie went for almost $1,000,000 USD last year and I don't have a spare $1,000,000 on me, I have opted to buy this to go with my 76 white esprit 104G. At least you can drive this one and it's not just for display. So, I have done the deal and it is headed to Atlanta, Georgia, USA in several weeks. Now it will flotus.
  8. Don't know how you got to this, but click on Ebay at the top left. Then under used, select Lotus and the following comes up: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/Cars-Trucks-/6001/i.html?LH_ItemCondition=2%7C0&_dmpt=US_Cars_Trucks&_flso=0&_mak=Lotus&_mod=-1&_sop=7&_rdc=1
