As part of a Top Gear Special featuring 50 years of Bond cars, Richard Hammond takes a modified Lotus for a spin... in a body of water.

Richard Hammond drives a car into a reservoir, and explains how it has been specially designed and built for this purpose.

Special thanks to reader Joelle Van Dyne for bringing this video to my attention.
