ROGER’S TOP FIVE CARS

It wasn’t all about Lo­tuses and Volvos, you know…

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

VOLVO P1800

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.

LO­TUS ESPRIT

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.

CITROËN 2CV

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.
