I found a car which I have been looking for for a while now. An exact spec Esprit as seen in my favourite James Bond film - The spy who loved me (1977).

As most car people know, this was the infamous Bond submarine car which massively captured my imagination as a child. The idea you could just drive a car into the sea, press a button and continue your journey underwater, evading the enemy was just so cool.

Another unusual thing about this car was that other than the first James Bond car - the Sunbeam Alpine which was just a hire car used in Dr No - this was Bond’s first car that wasn’t the DB5.

It was also the first proper Q car which was handed over by Q which became quite a tradition in later films.

Such an iconic car. But that comes at a cost steeper cost than I thought it would - £74,995
