James Bond submarine Esprit


Recommended Posts

I was talking to a lady yesterday who told me her father is a boat designer/engineer and he was on the team that built the 'submarine' Esprit for The Spy Who Loved Me.  I don't have any more details right now, but if I find out more I will try to follow up.  I just thought that was a cool thing and felt it was worth a post :-)

Ok. I know I am rebumping an old post but I thought I would add it in here. Interestingly, there is a link to a Tesla reference above.

I just saw this today. It's from 2016 so I am suitably embarrassed, but then I do live in Australia.


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.

Musk actually placed the Esprit in the Tesla design studio, to provide inspiration to his designers. They would have been finalising the Model 3 about then. I guess the designers took no mind of the Esprit 😆
