Bond cars: Lotus Esprits

Classic & Sports Car – Greatest Bond cars: inside the October 2021 issue of C&SC

For a story almost as epic as a James Bond adventure itself, turn to p92 of our October 2021 magazine as we meet an enthusiast who left no stone unturned in creating two incredible Bond homage Lotus Esprits.

They’re the perfect way to kick off our 27-page 007 special.


Bond baddies

It’s not all about the cars driven by Bond, though.

From p110, Jason Barlow chronicles the motors piloted by 007’s adversaries across the years – and we’re sure there are one or two you’ll have forgotten.


Mini marvel

Away from our James Bond special, Martin Buckley gets behind the wheel of a very special, very early Mini.

Its first owner was Autosport’s renowned technical editor John Bolster, whose careful customisation is part of what today makes this car so treasured.


Effortless elegance

Then, from p140, Mick Walsh lives the high life with a dream drive in the masterpiece that is this Vanvooren-bodied Hispano-Suiza J12.

After nine decades, it more than lives up to expectations.
