Think of James Bond and it’s likely that the only car you’ll imagine him in is an Aston Martin, but Bond aficionados may remember that the star in "For Your Eyes Only" was a Lotus Esprit . Last year, the Lotus connection grew by one more car as a Lotus Evora was spotted filming in the French Alps for what people thought was the 23rd installment in the Bond movies. Now it seems that rumor is coming crashing down as Lotus Silverstone - a UK Lotus dealership - is selling a one-offLotus Evora that happens to have been the star in those French Alp videos cruising the ’net a year ago.
According to Lotus Silverstone, those rumors about the Lotus and the 23rd Bond movie are not true. They also said that Lotus only built the car for marketing purposes, including a tour of dealerships and various other promotional activities. Now that the car has finished its marketing stint, the Silverstone dealership is selling the Evora . And if you expected it to come cheap then you would be sadly mistaken. This is the only James Bond Evora and it’s priced at £44,995 (or around $71,500 at the current exchange rates).
