"SIXES AND SEVENS"
THE UNMUTUAL PRISONER VEHICLE GUIDE

"I've always had a taste for a little speed". Mrs Butterworth, "Many Happy Returns".

Some of the most enduring images from The Prisoner TV series are those provided by the use of various vehicles involved. The Lotus 7 crossing Westminster Bridge, a Mini-Moke driving along the sands of Portmeirion, a Jaguar E-Type and Lotus Elan racing round the streets of Borehamwood, a Hearse in Park Lane, a Helicopter taking off from Portmeirion. All images indelibly linked to The Prisoner.

The Unmutual Website presents a guide to all these legendary vehicles, and many more besides, and the parts they played in the Series. Click on the links or images to see more detailed information and images of these vehicles.
