Forbes: 10 Bond Cars You Can Afford

Lotus Esprit Turbo

Q, Bond, Lotus and Lotus customers all thought that the basic Esprit was in need of more power, and that's precisely what the Esprit got in the form of an exhaust-driven turbocharger. It catapulted the car from a junior supercar to a real heavyweight capable of taking on the best from Italy without resorting to eight or 12 cylinders. Bond's car was fitted with a rather extreme anti-theft/anti-tamper device. The car exploded when the villain's henchman tried to break in. Caption courtesy of Hagerty.
