Elon Musk is a rock star. On Thursday night, a Tesla Motors spokesperson has announced that the company CEO has purchased the very Lotus Esprit submarine car from the James Bond 007 classic "The Spy Who Loved Me," from September's RM Auctions. According to the London auction, the Lotus Esprit submarine was sold for $920,167.

In "The Spy Who Loved Me," James Bond actor Roger Moore drives his white Lotus Esprit submarine straight off a pier and into the water. Just as the shocked audience grew concerned for Bond, the car suddenly retracted its wheels to extend fins and propellers for submarine mode. According to reports, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is a big fan of the iconic movie car but had a difficult time accepting the fact that the Lotus submarine wasn't actually a functioning road car.

"I was disappointed to learn that it can't actually transform," Musk said in a statement provided by Tesla. "What I'm going to do is upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain and try to make it transform for real."

In real life, the Elon Musk's Lotus Esprit was a "wet submarine," which means that the cabin fills with water when submerged, and requires the diver to wear a websuit and a breathing apparatus to survive.

In a rather short amount of time, Tesla Motor Company has exploded from a rocky start-up into a full blown auto manufacturer. What's more, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the founder of SpaceX as well as the inspiration of Robert Downey Jr.'s character Tony Stark and Iron Man. No doubt, Elon Musk's latest Lotus Esprit submarine stands to become the coolest EV ever and makes Musk himself the coolest James Bond in real life.
