ROGER’S TOP FIVE CARS
It wasn’t all about Lotuses and Volvos, you know…
Roger’s white steed throughout his TV tenure as The Saint made a star out of Volvo’s sexy sports car. Just the perfect pairing.
You can’t really imagine an Aston DB5 as a submarine. Roger’s wedge-shaped Lotus underwater wonder helped to define his lighter interpretation of 007.
ASTON MARTIN DBS
The first episode of The Persuaders saw Roger’s Bahama Yellow DBS tussle with Tony Curtis’ Dino. Did anybody want the Ferrari to win? Nope, thought not...
LAMBORGHINI ISLERO S
The surprisingly excellent The Man Who
Haunted Himself sees split personality Rog’ in both a Rover P5B and a Lamborghini Islero. He suits both.
OK, so Bond’s yellow tin snail is a little modified in For Your Eyes Only, but the 2CV chase is still an enjoyable triumph of prowess over power.
