And our show is, of course, anything but straightforward. Alongside the Goldfinger DB5, the most iconic Bond car ever has to be the white underwater Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me. So, after a few drinks, the crew decided that the best birthday present Top Gear could possibly give would be a working amphibious Lotus, designed using Top Gear Engineering... Elsewhere Richard takes a back seat, and gives the floor to some of the amazing characters who have brought Bond's car moments to life over the past half-century. There are appearances from Guy Hamilton (director of Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die and _The Man with the Golden Gun (1974_), while Roger Moore joins us to tell tales of the fish inside the Lotus Esprit. Daniel Craig - in breaks from filming Skyfall - also talks about driving with The Stig and reveals his favourite Bond car. Written by topgear.com See less
