Model Vehicle- Lotus Esprit in 1:18 scale by AutoArt - Submarine Car Version - The James Bond Collection
Produced by Gateway Global Ltd in Die-Cast metal with plastic parts in 1:18 scale (approx. 9 1/2" long)
This version of the Lotus Esprit appeared in the 1977 film 'The Spy Who Loved Me' starring Roger Moore as agent 007.
This finely detailed model has moveable hydroplanes where the wheels would normally be, a lifting bonnet/hood, opening boot/trunk and doors. The rear license/number plate lowers to reveal the ink and cement jets, and a compartment in the bonnet/hood lifts up to reveal rocket and grenade launchers.
The model car is in mint condition.
The box artwork features scenes from the film and is in good condition, apart from a 3 inch split in the plastic top (see photos, right hand side through the PET triangle symbol.)
