Bond's new car, the Lotus Esprit Turbo. But this time he doesn't use it in any chases.

Features an anti-theft device:

The DVLA has an entry for this plate:

The vehicle details for OPW 654W are:

Date of First Registration 05 09 1980
Year of Manufacture 1980
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 2174CC

However the colour is listed as bronze. Perhaps the plate was transferred to one of the other cars used in the film.

Wasserspeier wrote Did they use a real car for the explosion or only a shell? Any information about this?


From what I have read, Lotus provided them with a chassis which they blew up.

There's quite a bit of contradiction over how many cars were used in the film. Some websites say 2 (both Monaco White at first, with one being repainted Copper Fire Metallic) some say 4. Some say there was only one (started white, ended up being Copper Fire). Some say that two cars were Essex Spec. Some say they were built exclusively for the film. Other's still say that an Essex car (Reg. MPW 71V) was used as a testbed for the Copper Fire paint scheme. The contradictions go on. So does anyone know who's correct?

Terrific car. Doesn't end up well, though.
