For full-on savagery, though, Bosworth can amp up the engine to 4.0 litres with a power output of 425bhp, which is well and truly supercar territory, especially when you consider the car’s meagre weight of just 1200kg. With an estimated 0-60mph time of well under four seconds, in this guise the Singer is a tarmac-eating track animal. Singers are, of course, designed to be driven, despite the museum-ready attention to detail — they are, as Dickinson calls them, “rolling, durable weapons of love, art and performance”. There are certain commodities within the sphere of luxury that are truly exceptional. A bespoke suit, perhaps, which can take up to 110 man hours to create, all stitched and produced by hand. Or a luxury Swiss timepiece, with its hundreds of minuscule parts, all of which harmoniously work together to perform the art of keeping time. Cars only rarely fall into this category, of objects that leave no stone unturned and with no detail deemed too insignificant. Singer cars almost certainly do, however, and this is what makes their models special.
