James Bond's Lotus Esprit Turbo Goes Under The Hammer, Again

The Lotus Esprit Turbo from the lesser James Bond film For Your Eyes Only will go under the hammer in London at the end of this week. Roger Moore fans rejoice!

Our favorite part of the Bond Esprit, other than it being a Turbo Esprit, is the set of skis on the top. We'd love to pull up to some Aspen ski resort in one of these. Considering it previously sold at auction for 250,00 and the bidding is expected to net $150,000, this could be a steal.

That picture of the esprit with the skis was my desktop for about a year. You don't see a whole lot of sports cars at the ski resort, but I'm bringing that style back.
