The six wheeled Nautilus car in the film 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' starred by Naseruddin Shah and Sean Connery is now up for sale. The car in the film belonged to Captain Nemo played by Shah.

Post the movie, the car was bought by Stephen Lane, founder of Prop Store and now it is up for grabs at the Blenheim Palace in an auction by the international auctioneers Coys.

The vehicle that started its life as a Land Rover, is not legal or suitable for conventional use on roads in Britain. But it is expected to fetch upto £25,000 in auction.

Inspiration for the decoration on the ivory coloured car was drawn from Lord Ganesha and assorted flora and fauna.
