From the James Bond Movie 'For Your Eyes Only'
The Lotus Turbo Esprit (pronounced "es-pree") is a sports car that was built by Lotus in the United Kingdom. In 1980 the first factory turbocharged Esprit was launched. Their production continued through to the autumn of 1987 when the old design was discontinued and a new-style, the more rounded X180 model, took over. Two Turbo Esprits - one in white and the other in copper - were featured in 1981's For Your Eyes Only. The white vehicle was blown up by an anti-theft self-destruct system in Spain, while the copper one was a replacement used to travel to Cortina.
Realizing that the submersible Esprit had proven popular in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), the production team once again selected one of Lotus' vehicles for use in For Your Eyes Only(1981) - the Lotus Esprit S3 Turbo. This Lotus Esprit was driven by Bond throughout the film and can be seen prominently during an expedition to spy on Hector Gonzales in Madrid, Spain. Later in the film, the car is seen again at the Italian ski resort of Cortina.
