Actor Herbert Lom, most famous for his appearances in the Pink Panther films, has announced that he is to sell his 1996 Jaguar saloon.
Lom will forever be associated with his role as commissioner Charles Dreyfus, the long-suffering superior office of Inspector Clouseau (played by Peter Sellers) in films such as The Return of the Pink Panther and The Pink Panther Strikes Again.
Almost slipping into name-dropping mode, Mr Lom said: "My Jaguar XJ Executive has been a great pleasure to own. It is a smooth drive and an extremely comfortable car, as many of my show business friends who have travelled in it as passengers over the years have remarked."
The 90-year-old star has owned the stylish vehicle since 2005.
Finished in blue metallic with cream leather interior it is in excellent condition and is sure to attract many bidders tempted by the £3,000 estimate that sales expert BCA has attached to it.
Barring a Clouseau-style accident, the Jaguar will be on sale at the next Classics from BCA sale, to be held at Blackbushe on Tuesday, 22nd July.
