'The Lotus Bond-themed Evora Sport 410 Honors The Original Esprit S1'

The fastest Lotus ever is the Lotus Evora 410, and now it is making a sentimental nostalgia play with a little help from James Bond. The automaker built an Evora Sport 410 to give privilege to the Esprit S1 which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with the work support from the Lotus' in-house personalization department.

 It was known as James Bond's car of choice in the film, "The Spy Who Loved Me" back in 1977. According to Cnet, Lotus exclusive department of personalization gave this action car a front bumper in a color-code, tailgate from a one piece carbon fiber, bespoke badge script placed on the rear flank and a coach line in black.

According to the CEO of Lotus, Jean-Marc Gales, "It's the perfect tribute to such an influential Lotus." There were no changes made on the Evora Sport 410. It is still powered by a supercharged 3.5 liters V6 engine that can produce 410 horsepower at 7000 RPM (revolutions per minute) and a terrifying 420 Nm standard unit of torque at 3500 RPM.

With the car weighing 1,280 kg, the Evora Sport 410 can dash from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The extremely advanced aerodynamics can carry up to 64 kg of downforce, meaning this car is not designed for underwater but only for both road and track as reported in Design Boom.

The new customized Evora Sport 410 will turn as an ultimate collector's item for "007". The said car is not suited for both land and water just like the Esprit S1.

The Evora Sport 410 is cloth with white paint, displays an old school Lotus badge on the B-pillar (where the driver and passenger-side windows end), a black waistline and a white tailgate that creates an illusion of a liftback-style of the vehicle. The seats and door panels are concealed in a tartan style fabric with red stitching on the dashboard and a center console finish.
