Lotus Esprit 'Wet Nellie' - The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Delivered to Bond in Sardinia by the ever anxious Q, this Lotus was capable of transforming into a submarine equipped with anti-aircraft missiles. Several full-size Esprit bodyshells were used for the transformation and the memorable underwater scenes took four months to film. Although the sub was only capable of 10 knots, the road-going version of the Esprit could hit 60mph in under eight seconds and top 130mph.
