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.
