Didn't I see a Bond movie with Lotus do that? 8)

Yes it was:

The Spy Who Loved Me

This is :

The Spy Who Loved Me in Miami

Much better version 0-60 in 2.8 seconds or 0-52 knots in 2.8 seconds



Sorry, nope. I will take Sir Roger Moore's 007 movies with his HOT Bond girls anytime.


You mean The Spy Who Loved Me ?

the tenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the third to star Roger Moore as James Bond

We prefer the original Bond, the guy with the rug on his head with a concealed mini machine gun....Sean Connery
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Every generation has their favorite Bond. Roger Moore is mine. I grew up with him as 007. My take: Roger 'fit' Bond better in my opinion. He had the looks, the wit (and the best one liners), humor (sometimes very campy), the gadgets and of course the girls. For 'me' the hottest Bond girl was Tanya Roberts. Nothing against Connery. Btw, the first guy they 'wanted' was Roger. He was unfortunately unavailable at that time in a contract doing his Saint TV series.

KInda wonder if there has been a followup on the current condition of the submersible Stingray.  That was also not the cleanest water for trolling.  So did it go back to the dealer for having any leaks or engine probelms? 8)
