One of the most memorable cars in movie history, the Lotus Esprit provides much of the excitement of the film. Q's modifications meant that it was able to turn into a submarine. Bond is chased around Sardinia pursued by a missile-launching motorbike, Jaws and a car full of Stromberg's henchmen, and finally by Stromberg's mistress Naomi in a helicopter. To evade Naomi, Bond drives the car off a jetty into the sea, where it transforms into a submarine. Bond uses the car's missile-launchers to dispose of Naomi and proceeds to take a closer look at Stromberg's underwater base. Having utilised the submarine Lotus' ink jets, torpedoes and mines to fight off Stromberg's underwater henchmen, Bond drives the car up a beach to the amazement of holidaymakers.
