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
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.
