Ascari KZ1 gets big break in film
A public vote held by the British auto rag CAR has landed the Ascari KZ1 supercar the leading role in an upcoming Hollywood remake of The Persuaders, originally a British TV series from the early Seventies that starred Roger Moore and Tony Curtis. The KZ1 beat choices from Lamborghini, Ferrari and even Aston Martin, which just rolled out its new Bond car last week, the DBS. Filming for The Persuaders won't start until 2007 with Ben Stiller, Hugh Grant and George Clooney being tossed around as possible co-stars for the KZ1.
