1978 LOTUS ESPRIT S1 SILVER – Original James Bond Model

Recommended Posts

Superb 1978 Lotus Esprit S1.It’s the highly sought after S1 model of the world famous Lotus Esprit, made popular by James Bond in 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me when Roger Moore drove the Esprit in to the sea, where it then turned into a submarine. This one piece of Hollywood history turn the Esprit into a schoolboy’s fantasy.This version in beautiful silver is the very first S1 model, as driven by Roger Moore. This model is VERY rare. The S1 was produced from 1975 to 1978 in which time only 894 made it off the production line. Many of these were for overseas which makes this car very rare indeed.It only has 66,000 miles on the clock, I have done less than 50 miles in the last 3 years. It has very recently been serviced and has a full 12 month MOT. It is currently SORN, but can be taxed if there are concerns. I can provide more pictures if needed or arrange a viewing.I have seen mint examples of the S1 Esprit sell for up to £25,000, so this is a bargain at the price of ONLY £9,000 ONO. I’ll consider serious offers. I will also be listing the car on other classic car websites with a price of £9,000 ONO. Other detailsI have been asked about the VIN number. It is 78040367GI have also been asked about the paint code. It is A03 – Silver Diamond. I have been informed that only 18 models were recorded in the silver finish.

It really does have a handle screwed to the boot lid. Does have some merit though, I was thinking of doing the same to mine.

Seems to be a regular on ebay.
