eBay watch: 1970s Lotus Esprit sports car

Lotus1

If it's good enough for James Bond, it's good enough for you. This 1970s Lotus Esprit sports car, that is.


OK, Bond didn't have this one – he had a unique version of the S1 that could turn into a submarine and fire missiles in The Spy Who Loved Me back in 1977. This later model (1979) sadly doesn't do either, but it certainly has the 'look'.

It also has a 1,973cc engine, a Monaco Red finish, red and white leather upholstery. alloy wheels, 91,000 on the clock and comes with £4,000 worth of bills showing extensive work. That includes a reconditioned engine.

Downside? it has been stored 'for some time' so not currently taxed or MOT'd. However, it is said to drive 'very well'.

Fancy it? The bidding is at £99.
