Top Gear takes the Lotus Exige Sport 350 on a James Bond themed road trip!

Few things exude more iconic British style than Lotus cars and James Bond films. Though the two only crossed paths for for a few features, each left an indelible mark on the other. Now, BBC's Top Gear is retracing the steps of the international super spy and doing so in impeccable Lotus style.

It can be argued that if Roger Moore was the star in the 1981 Bond Film, For Your Eyes Only, then the Lotus Espirit Turbo was his equally capable co-star. In this month's issue of BBC's Top Gear Magazine, presenter Ollie Marriage takes its spiritual successor, the Lotus Exige Sport 350, into the Italian Alps to pay homage to the film and put this super spy car through the paces. Though this car may not have a self-destruct button like the one in the film, its 345-horsepower, 3.5-liter supercharged engine should prove plenty "explosive", as this vehicle can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

The interactive issue is just out now on the iPad and iPhone and we highly recommend that anyone who wants to check out the high attitude spy hijinks pick up a copy through the Top Gear app. And if that's not enough for you, stop by World Imports USA to get behind the wheel of a new or pre-owned Lotus today!
