For Your Eyes Only - Simon Cowell takes delivery of a very special Mini

Simon Cowell has taken delivery of a classic-style Mini built to replicate the Lotus Esprit Turbo driven by Sir Roger Moore in the 1981 007 film, For Your Eyes Only.

This is no ordinary Mini but a one-off built to the specification requested by Simon.

Built by British firm David Brown Automotive, its remastered range of the iconic British car cost in the region of £100,000 a piece.

To replicate the look of the Lotus that appears in the movie, the Silverstone-based brand has painted the Mini in the same 'copper flow' and 'sahara gold' scheme,

The For Your Eyes Only Lotus is widely regarded as one of the most iconic Bond cars, even despite the fact it's not an Aston Martin.

That is what you call a set of wheels. We wouldn't like to scrape the kerb with those.
