After filming and a short tour the car was put into a storage locker in Long Island New York. After 10 years the lease on the locker came to an end, but no one came to claim the contents. The locker contents was purchased by a Tool Hire Shop owner for under $100 not knowing Bond's iconic Lotus was within. The car today belongs to Elon Musk who purchased it for £550,000 in 2013.
