eBay watch: 1970 Volvo P1800 E sports car


If you are a fan of the cult 1960s show The Saint, you'll recognise the car immediately, as Simon Templar, played by Roger Moore drove a similar (but slightly earlier) one. Now you can get your hands on a 1970 Volvo P1800 E sports car, crime fighter or not.

Apparently Moore loved the car so much, he bought one for his own personal use. You can see why. This one is the 'E' model (a fuel-injected version and the first with four-wheel disc brakes), which has apparently done 57,039 on that 1,986cc engine amongst six previous owners.

The current owner said 'no expense spared' when it has come to upkeep – see the listing for all the additions and upgrades, right down to a CD player and high-end sound system. See also the listing for many more images of what looks like an impressive example of an all-time and fairly practical classic. Bidding right now is at £1,800.
