Roger Moore James Bond's submarine car from the film The Spy Who Loved Me has sold at auction in London for $825,000 (£550,000).

The vehicle, which Roger Moore drove as 007, went under the hammer on Monday (09Sep13).

It fell short of the $1.5 million (£1 million) it was expected to fetch, but still created an auction buzz when a female buyer and a telephone collector tried to outbid each other for the Lotus Esprit.

The car eventually went to the absent bidder.
