AskMen.com Top 10: Classic TV Cars

AskMen.com's Norman Brown has posted his list of The Top Ten Classic TV Cars of All-Time.

Coming in at number six is The Saint's Volvo 1800 as driven by Roger Moore in the classic 1960s TV show, The Saint:
6. Volvo P1800 - The Saint
Something fast, sporty and flashy was needed to match the style of the mysterious Simon Templar, first played by Roger Moore in the '60s. In the end, the Volvo P1800 was chosen over a similar Jaguar E-Type because of its sleek look and power (and, well, because Jaguar didn't want to supply one). Aside from a few cosmetic changes to the bumper, license plate and trim, the Volvo car remained unchanged during filming. Therefore, the car's elongated hood, rounded headlights and wide front grille remained unmistakable throughout the show's run.

The exotic P1800 contributed to the smoothness Moore's character exuded, as he was often seen zipping through city streets in the two-door speedster.

Cool fact: Roger Moore liked the P1800 so much that he bought one for himself.

The Volvo P1800 is a true classic. This is a celebrated car because of its celebrity drivers. The raw design and texture of the Volvo P1800 reveals the simplicity of the 60's. The black and white tint complements with its sleek car sides and its brave front rear. This model is a proud participant of the 60' celebrations.
