The 1977 Lotus Esprit S1, based on Giorgetto Giugiaro M70 concept, represented the height of 1970's sports car design. Made famous by turning from a car into a submarine in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, the Esprit boasted 140 hp from a mid-engine 4 cylinder with 2 Zenith-Stromberg Carburetors. The five speed manual gearbox and four wheel disc brakes add to the performance. This particular car was first delivered to Lotus Cars USA to its first owner on the West Coast. Shows outstanding original cosmetic condition and displaying just over 27,000 miles. The striking exterior color is "Lemon" with a Lotus Green & Tartan interior. This is one of the most unique and iconic interiors ever produced.
This Esprit is virtually untouched and original throughout. This vehicle's excellent power-to-weight ratio and lightweight fiberglass body make it nimble and entertaining to drive. It is a rare original and untouched example of a unique chapter in sports car history and design.

@Totally_Dynamic A Lotus. Not fussy which one, just always wanted one since James Bond's Lotus Esprit wow'd me in 1977.
From WikipediaThe Lotus Esprit (es-pree) is a sports car that was built by Lotus in the United Kingdom between 1976 and 2004, as well as a future release in 2013. The silver Italdesign concept that eventually became the Esprit was unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1972 as a concept car, and was a development of a stretched Lotus Europa chassis. It was among the first of designer Giorgetto Giugiaro's polygonal "folded paper" designs.
