The Esprit has held a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts and popular culture for nearly four decades. From its early appearance on the big screen as the Roger Moore James Bond spy-car of choice, to Richard Gere’s Sunset Strip cruiser that caught the eye of a young Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, to a source of inspiration for design evangelists like Elon Musk (who actually purchased the aforementioned James Bond Esprit in 2013 for $1 million), we believe the Lotus Esprit to be one of the unsung heroes of the late 70’s exotics.

“It was amazing as a little kid in South Africa to watch James Bond drive his Lotus Esprit off a pier, press a button and have it transform. I always wanted it”

— Elon Musk

#77LE1 Details

Rally’s #77LE1, a pristine example of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s origami-inspired design, has 10,100 original miles and over $130,000 invested by it’s previous owner. It’s been meticulously maintained and received a full nut-&-bolt restoration. The rare oatmeal marcasite interior + a feature at the 2011 NY Auto Show make #77LE1 a truly unique work of art, with similar comps seeing sizable gains in recent years.
