Event Description

There is a 1977 James Bond movie (it premiered 07/07/77)called "The Spy Who Loved Me" in which Roger Moore and Barbara Bach are in  a Lotus car.  In the movie the car goes off
 
a dock, goes under water, and becomes a submarine.
 
That sequence is here:
 
 
A Lotus and James Bond enthusiast in Wales in the United Kingdom built a boat from the shell of a lotus to look like the submarine some years ago.  Some background on it:

 Here is a video about it starting at about 1:30:

I have just bought this and imported it from England.

This is quite famous in boating and Lotus circles in the UK.

 

It is on the cover of several magazines I have.

I also own a street car just like the one in the "Spy Who Loved Me".

Pictures are attached.

Both will be at the Lake Lanier Car Show on Oct. 11.  

Sometime in the afternoon of the car show, I will launch the "flotus" and cruise around sunset cove and the beach.

Later I will move both the Lotus car and the Lotus boat to be on display out front of the stage and restaurant at the end of Sunset Cove for

the Full Moon Party and Fireworks.

Anything related to James Bond seems to be very popular with the public.

As this is the Initial Launch in US waters of the "James Bond" Lotus Esprit Marine aka "Flotus", I thought you might be interested in covering it.

This was not used in the movie, but is the only one ever built in the world, and the only one that actually travels in the water. 

There is much more to the story.
