eBay watch: 1978 Lotus Esprit S2 car

Lotus1

James Bond drive a Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me, which you may remember, turned into a submarine. This 1978 Lotus Esprit S2 doesn't do that…at least, not as far as we know.

But it does have one special feature – the power to turn heads. This is 1970s excess on four wheels, the kind of car no one in their right mind would build in 2011. But it was around in the mid-70s, with this example in silver with a red leather interior, fully working, with new bumpers, a new battery and a stainless steel exhaust.

The seller concedes that the car, just out of storage, would benefit from some cosmetic work. But a car of this age probably would do. Bidding right now is at £2,050.
