TBT: The Lotus Esprit S1

For this week's Throwback Thursday, we're bringing you a post that was retweeted by the Lotus Cars Twitter team (@grouplotusplc). Check out this repurposed Esprit 1, from the 1977 James Bond film, The Spy Who Loved Me.

A replacement for the Europa, the Esprit made its debut at the 1975 Paris Auto Show, and production began in June of the following year. Fun fact: The submarine Esprit S1 is now owned by Elon Musk, who plans to convert it into a real life roadcar/submarine.
