This is my 4-wide model of the Lotus Esprit Series 1 (S1) as used by James Bond in the movie "The Spy Who Loved Me"
About this creation
This model also was part of my second DESIGNbyME set. The 1x4 slopes aren't available in the LEGO Shop, so I ordered them via Bricklink and in the set I ordered 1x4 bows instead.

Rear left view. I realized that the rear end looks very much like the one of Angka's Esprit. Believe it or not, I didn't copy that. It was just the best way to build the rear end of a 4-wide Esprit and we did it the same way. But I have to admit that Angka's Esprit was the inspiration for me to build one myself. I had seen his version a few weeks before starting with this one.

As the James Bond car it also needs a submarine mode. This is it:

The design is modular: You can take off the front and rear part and replace them by the submarine parts. The other way it's a bit more tricky, but it still works OK.

So this is my 4-wide LEGO 007 Lotus Esprit S1. I hope you like it...

Extremely nice! The normal (non sub) version reminds me of Chaparral racing cars, but I certainly recognize the Esprit in there!

Why have I not commented yet?! Amazing replica of one of Bonds most famous vehicles, I particularly like the submarine mode - the rear especially is very accurate. Would be a very neat little set. Great work!

Quoting i_like_porsches !! xD i tht the submarine version was another car! These are some good models!
Later I built a second center module to be able to show both versions together. So I didn't need Photoshop for the main photo ;-)
