The Lotus Emira should be the next Bond car! (in white)

Recommended Posts

No time to die is Daniel Craigs last outing as Bond.  New Bond needs a new car....and I reckon it's about time he gets back into a white Lotus (maybe not one that turns into a submarine though).

What do we think?  anyone here work at Lotus who could stick a note under the MDs door?

Looks good in white!

Too late for the new film, of course. 

The next one, with the next James Bond - would be bloody awesome and give yet another boost to the growing legend of Emira.

Ha, does not have to be white. Just needs to be bloody cool with some epic gadgets.

What next though? The ability to fly for a short distance?  umm.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

They will stick with Aston BUT as it happens, the Emira would make an epic baddies car. 

I think this would not harm the brand at all. Pretty but deadly...

Neither of those two will make it unfortunately. Too expensive!

I do think a Vantage/Vanquish will be the main event.

No new Jags on the horizon so the Bond Girl's car could be an Emira. 

I do hope the Bond franchise brings a Lotus back into it.

The white Esprit is iconic but I always preferred this one:

I did love the Jaguar C-X75 used by the huge, bald baddy recently.  Stunning.

My fave of all time is actually that super rare and utterly gorgeous old Toyota. Class.

You may, or may not, also be aware that the car which appeared in the film is the rarest of all - 1 of 1. It’s the only ‘convertible’. 

They had to chop the roof off so that Mr Connery would fit in it!

Agree Emira is a Cayman level car, Esprit was Ferrari level car at the time. JB deserves better. Agree Evija would be much better choice. It would look a lot better on camera, do a lot more for Lotus and assassins are meant to be silent!

Too expensive? Not for her majesty’s secret service 😀

Anyway, in movie making there are simple workarounds to make us believe. They didn’t blow up a real DB5 in Skyfall… 😀😀

True - maybe there is hope. What about the quietness? Perhaps, not a big deal with the euphoric background music, screaming and gun fire. :)

Maybe it is more realistic then I first thought actually, as they may well be keen to support the movement to Hybrid/electric.

Well we sure as hell can't let the baddie have the Emira if they come asking.

Who needs the publicity of the Lotus being beaten by whatever heavier vehicle they put "Bond, James Bond" in?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

The only to top the underwater Esprit and the invisible Aston is to make the Emira fly!

Now, that would be cool  - or at least crash off a mountain side and glide down to earth.

This makes sense for the brand as the cars will be flying out of the showrooms 😃

A flying car was already done, though for the bad guy: see The Man With the Golden Gun.

Elon Musk blasted its Tesla Roadster into space, thus that’s not a real option too 😀

I’d still like to see a classical chase… with the badass in a Pininfarina Battista for instance (Tesla’s for the badass helpers which are rocketed from the road by the Evija onboard firing power)

A full EV James Bond movie in support of the zero carbon - zero emission move we’re expected to make. Just in time for the after-Emira era of Lotus.
Why not even a cameo of the first new EV Lotus model? Oops, here is Lotus PR on the phone, have to go 😂
