Corgi James Bond Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me
|Model Type||Vehicle - Passenger Car|
This is Corgi's Fit-The-Box range model of the Lotus Esprit submersible car used by James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me.
Finished in white with black trim, this model depicts the car in submarine mode, with retracted wheels. It is fitted with small hidden wheels in the chassis to enable it to be pushed along and features "007" number plates front and rear.
The Infamous Underwater Lotus...
The underwater Lotus from Corgi's Fit-The-Box is one of the simpler models from the range. Moulded in submarine mode, it has a nice shape to it, but is let down by the lack of detailing to rear where the propellors ought to be, and by the usual "007" plates used across much of this range.
