Evija, Esprit and the Spy Who Loved Me.

In the 1970s a white Lotus Esprit became the leading car in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me. The film’s Royal premiere was at the Odeon Leicester Square in London on 7 July 1977 (7/7/77).

The legendary cinematographer Claude Renoir insisted on white to make the car look stunning in both the bright Mediterranean sunshine (and under its clear waters).

Today is 7/7/20 – exactly 43 years later – and to mark the occasion we’re revealing exclusive new photographs of another white car.

It’s the all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar and we’ve photographed it with an Esprit S1 in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me spec’, which is white with a tartan interior. It’s a small nod of appreciation for one of the most famous cars in film history.
