The Spy who loved Me (1977) is the tenth James Bond film. Bond has to stop shipping magnate Karl Stromberg from using captured submarines against major cities.

Liparus[edit | edit source]

The Liparus is not a real ship. According to the producers, it was loosely inspired by Shell tankers from the 1970s. The ship seen in the movie is a model, while the interior scenes were filmed at Pinewood studios in England on a special-built set. In the movie, the Liparus, owned by Karl Stromberg (Curt Jürgens) is the second-largest tanker of the world, and has been built between 1976 / 1977. Bond soon discovers that it is not only a tanker, but also a mobile submarine pen, and that it has a submarine tracking system installed, which helps her to kidnap submarines. The ship, which also houses a command center, an armory, quarters for the captured submarine crews and its own small subway system, gets destroyed after Bond (Roger Moore) unleashes a major battle between the British, American and Soviet crew members, and Stromberg's private army.

Lotus Esprit[edit | edit source]

Bond uses it together with Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach), they use the car's submarine-modus to investigate beneath the surface of the Mediterranean Sea. The Lotus converts into a submarine, which also houses many gadgets, including mines, torpedos and anti-aircraft-missiles, to be used by James Bond.
