The Lotus Esprit ranks with the Aston Martin DB5, as a truly classic Bond vehicle. It was nicknamed 'Wet Nellie' after Bond's autogyro 'Little Nellie' from 'You Only Live Twice'.
Bond's Esprit was highly armed, and it could travel underwater at a relatively high speed.
Six different 'Shells' & 'Models' were used to perform the Land to Sea transformation, and a empty shell with a diver in a wetsuit acted underwater. Today one of these six vehicles is owned by 'The Ian Fleming Foundation'.
