Sir Roger Moore’s Volvo from ‘The Saint’ is coming to Essen
When wealthy adventurer Simon Templar travelled the world robbing from the criminally rich and giving to the desperate and poor, he was never without his Volvo P1800 S. And after seven years and 118 episodes, you’d think Roger Moore — the fabulous actor who played Templar — would have gotten sick of sliding behind the wheel of the Pearl White Swedish machine, but he it just made him fall further in love. So much so that he bought this very 1967 Volvo and even used it in the series for three years — the interior still features a thermometer on the dashboard and separate interior fan from filming. Wearing the registration plate NUV 648E on the road and ST 1 on the show, both of which still accompany the car, Volvo Cars will bring the P1800 S in front of its adoring public once more at Techno Classica Essen on 21–25 March.
