As we noted last month, British actor Peter Sellers was the quite the car collector.

Lotus was one of his favorite marques, and when he got engaged to ridiculously hot Swedish actress Britt Ekland in 1964, he gave her a new Lotus Elan so she’d have something suitably stylish to putter around in.

Ekland, who became a Bond Girl ten years later (below), was a very stylish girl.

As today’s her birthday, we thought we’d commemorate the occasion with a photo of the stunner and her new toy.

We bet that leopard didn’t even mind giving up a little skin….
