Esprit at For Your Eyes Only premiere

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to hunt down a large size copy of this image for a while, just to try and identify the car and if it's still around; Esprit S2, registered 25 06 1980, reg FTG 807V, listed as blue.

Perhaps for whatever reason the real Bondmobiles must not have been available for the Leiceister Square premiere so a regular Esprit S2 was drafted in. DVLA have it off the road by 1997 sadly

 

Did anyone on here own it?

Hi mark,

Nice find!  That's a great picture, that was when the Esprit was the sophitsicated car about town.

It's been a thumbnail on Rex's site for ages, so small you couldn't see the reg plate. I was interested to see if it had ever been owned by a member here! Must be more snaps of the event out there in private photo albums and press agencies.

 

I love how more and more previously unseen pics keep appearing. Not seen most of these For Yor Eyes Only shots before today, released by Lotus cars on Facebook apparently - hope they keep coming. The first is the white "Cortina" Turbo next to Hector Gonzalez's armed seaplane. The second was posted on here a few eeeks back, then some behind the camera shots....love the copper car in the snow!

These are absolutely incredible shots. The first one with the seaplane is stunning. Let's hope there are more pictures like these to come.

Judging by her face and hands her whole skin tone matches! She's still stunning 30 odd years later

That I'm told is the Colchester premier of Die Another Day.

The car then belonged to Neil Hodson.

Can't find it attributed to any particular source. It just appeared in various forums dated a couple of years back so it's taken a while to get noticed by nerds like us!
