One of Roger Moore’s ride in the 1981 James Bond movie, ‘For Your Eyes Only’, this particular white Esprit Turbo didn’t live to see the end of the movie. It got blown to smithereens when it’s own car alarm bomb thwarted a break-in by the baddies’ henchmen.

These are my James Bond ‘For Your Eyes Only’ Lotus Turbo Esprits by Corgi and by Universal Hobbies. Not sure about the exact scale of the Corgi one (it’s rather large) but the UH one is 1:43.
