Behold: the 1954 Swallow Doretti – a two seater roadster made for the US market by a former motorcycle sidecar manufacturer that would eventually rebrand as Jaguar.

Fitted with the motor and gearbox of a Triumph TR2, the Doretti had tight handling, Italian pretentions and a top speed of 160 km/h.

Only 276 were made between 1954 and 1955 and this fully restored, factory correct survivor goes under the hammer next May.

    You won’t outbid Charlie Watts on that one.
    He has a serious collection of vintage cars but doesn’t drive -he just gets dressed up and sits in them.
