Roger Moore's Aston Martin from The Persuaders! fetches world record ?533k at auction - Mirror Online
A motoring icon of the 1970s, the DBS has a 5.4-liter V8 churning out 320 horsepower and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque at 5,000 rpm. A five-speed manual gearbox from ZF or an optional Chrysler three-speed auto handled cog swapping, while 0 to 60 mph was achievable in 6 seconds flat. Back in 1970, the Aston Martin DBS V8 had a starting price of UK5,281, which is over UK 150,000 ($252,000) in nowadays money.
However, Roger Moore's DBS from 'The Persuaders!' features a 4.0-liter inline-six under its bonnet. Its 280 horsepower meant it went from naught to 60 miles per hour in 7.1 seconds.
