As I heard it the storage locker was in a barn in Portugal.

Elon Musk purchased Bond Sub car

Elon Musk bought $866k Bond Lotus sub and plans Tesla-power upgrade - SlashGear

I work on the Tesla Model S chips for my company that run the Nav. display and center console and meet with Tesla folks often. Interesting company to say the least. They compare Elon to "the next Steve Jobs". Certainly eccentric enough.

When I first saw this there was no mention of the locker cost, just what the car sold for... $970k US ?

That's one hell of a barn find! To the best of my knowledge there was only one car of six made for the movie that was the real 'submarine' car and this is the one.

I'm open for a test drive.
