Introducing the James Bond Lotus Esprit S1 Model Car/Submarine - The Spy Who Loved Me Edition by Round 2, a 1:18 scale model of the iconic vehicle.
Backstory. The Lotus Esprit S1 is known for its polygonal ‘folded paper’ like design but was ultimately made famous when it was driven by James Bond in the The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). The car was delivered by Q to the Island of Sardinia fitted with a range of modifications. After a long chase around the island, fighting off attacks from a motorbike, a Ford Cortina and helicopter, the only way to escape was to go into the sea and go into submarine mode. After an under-water duel, Bond and Russian Agent Major Anya Amasova emerge driving the Lotus up the beach much to the shock of the sun bathers as the car turns back into its road going format and speeds off in a true James Bond style.
Details. This 1:18 scale model converts from car to underwater submarine. It has a die-cast metal body with opening doors, boot and hood, accurate engine and engine bay details, accurate interior accents and rear propeller rotors. Suitable for age 14+.
