This is also an example where Colin Chapman (founder of Lotus) used the knowledge from building and competing in – Formula One.
Every driver loves the car and its agility.

It was Chapman who developed the concept to build light-weight cars.

There is just a few of them left in a good condition – that´s why the price goes up -

At the beginning of the film, a white Lotus Turbo Esprit was used, while Roger Moore investigated Gonzale's House. 2 bad guys attempted to break into the car, however, the security system activated and blew up the car! Not very clever security device if you ask me. The second car was a copper coloured Turbo Esprit, shown here, featuring a ski rack on the rear louvers. There were two identical copper cars used in the filming. The second being purchased directly from Lotus Cars in 1998. The car below was actually Lotus's 1980 Turbo Esprit prototype and was originally white, but the car was painted copper, so it would show up against the snowy backgrounds in the film. Both cars helped give the Esprit Turbo some much need promotion and increased the profile of the car to the general public.

After the popularity of the white Lotus Esprit S1, in the 1977 James Bond Film, The Spy Who Loved Me, the new Turbo Esprit was featured in the 1981 film, For Your Eyes Only. Where as the Esprit in the Spy Who Loved me was "an all sing, all dance" submarine, the Turbo Esprit's took on less ambitious roles in the film.

In film and on television

1977 S1 in "submarine" mode, as seen in The Spy Who Loved Me

An S1 Esprit was featured in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, where a car famously converted into a submarine after a road chase. The car used in the underwater scenes, nick-named "Wet Nellie", was bought by businessman Elon Musk in September 2013.
The Spy Who Loved Me  (1977) - Roger Moore Älskade Spion 1977 

Two Essex-spec Turbo Esprits were featured in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only. A white one destroyed early in the film and a copper-red model appearing later.

An X180 Esprit appeared in the film Pretty Woman after Ferrari and Porsche declined the product placement opportunity because the manufacturers did not want to be associated with soliciting prostitutes. Lotus saw the placement value with such a major feature film and supplied a Silver 1989.5 Esprit SE.

The car was also seen in Basic InstinctThe RookieTaking Care of BusinessIf Looks Could Kill / Teen Agent and Parts: The Clonus Horror, as well as the short-lived TV series The Highwayman.
