And if you day dream being Bond and driving his classics then this pieces will make you drop your jaw. The white dazzling 1976 Lotus Esprit from the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me is going on sale by the international auctioneers on 1 December at its annual motoring Auction Sale at Olympia, in West London.
The vehicle is one of two Lotus cars driven in the film by Roger Moore’s James Bond character. It turns into an amphibious car for the movie, driven both on land and underwater. Also for sale, is the registration number AU1, used in another James Bond film Goldfinger. The first registration issued in Nottingham in 1903, this number was fitted to the Rolls-Royce Phantom III used by arch villain Goldfinger in the legendary film of the same name, since AU is also the chemical symbol for gold in the Periodic Table. It is expected to fetch in excess of 80,000.
