Lotus Esprit owner Chris Southam

It’s one of the most iconic Bond movie moments, when Roger Moore drives his Lotus Esprit off a pier into the sea, pulls a few levers and turns it into a submarine.

That scene from The Spy Who Loved Me made such an impression on a young Chris Southam that, in true petrolhead style, he actually bought a Lotus Esprit like Bond’s.

It needed a complete restoration and repainting in white, but Chris now has the car of his boyhood dreams. Paul Woodford went to meet Chris to talk about living out childhood fantasies.
