Trivia: The driver doing the driving stunts in the Lotus actually worked for Lotus - he was only supposed to deliver the car to set, but the stunt driver could not get the car to handle the way they wanted, so they asked him after he sped up the road and did a couple of hand brake turns on arrival.
Trivia: Ian Fleming was never happy with his novel, "The Spy Who Loved Me." In the book, Bond doesn't even appear until late into the story and much of the action takes place in a motel room.

Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, it was with specification that The Spy Who Loved Me was to be reinvented for the big screen and only the title could be used.
