Tesla’s latest creation —Cybertruck— was reportedly inspired from one of the cars in a James Bond film, which Elon Musk bought.

Remember the James Bond film “The Spy Who Love Me”? Movie aficionados can vividly recall the Lotus Esprit that sped off the pier into the water and transformed itself into a submarine.

Yes! Musk got the very same James Bond vehicle from a couple for nearly $1 million. Musk grew up watching the series of spy’s film and he loved it so when he got the opportunity to purchase that one of the coolest cars in the history of James Bond films, he grabbed it.

In a 2013 statement of Musk at Jalopnik, an auto blog, he uttered how disappointed he was after learning that the James Bond car could not actually transform. He continued saying that he would upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain, CNBC reported. He’s ultimate goal? To make the James Bond car transform for real.

The 1976 Lotus Esprit was the car James Bond used in the film “The Spy Who Loved Me” in 1977. A couple from Long Island, New York accidentally got in through a blind auction for $100.

The car was reportedly authenticated by Doug Redenius, co-founder of the Ian Fleming Foundation. Redenius reportedly told NBC News that the couple didn’t know the value of the car since they haven’t watched any James Bond film.

Fast forward years later, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk came into the picture. Bond’s car was reportedly auctioned and a secret buyer purchased it for $997,000.

Since the car was previously used for underwater scenes, it didn’t have wheels; rather, it has “fins.” The back part of the car has propellers to let it move underwater.

More so, this vintage car was one of Musk’s inspiration in designing Tesla’s new Cybertruck.

Tesla’s latest creation is an all-electric pickup and allegedly bulletproof against 9mm handgun.

Yes, you’ve seen it right. The metal ball did not pass through the window.

It was previously reported that Musk’s Cybertruck would be competing against Ford’s F series.

Another yes for that! Tesla’s latest creation just pulled the F-150 uphill. Not only that. A sledgehammer was reportedly used to hit Cybertruck’s body to check how durable it is.

Here’s another thing. Musk’s Cybertruck has 3 types or should we say versoins. The single-motor and rear wheel drive, the dual motor all-wheel drive version and a trimotor version. All versions will reportedly have Tesla’s autopilot, advance driver-assist features and an optional self-driving package.
