![CDATA[
This example of Daimlers 1960’s line-up utilised the powerful 2.5 litre, V8 engine made famous in the 250SP. This model range, launched in 1962, was effectively a rebadged Mk. I but the engine was a silky-smooth power plant mated to a standard automatic gearbox and tested by Britain's Autocar magazine in 1966 having a top speed of 112mph. Other differences include a Daimler fluted grille, rear number plate surround, wheel trims, badges and interior details. In 1967, it was renamed the V8-250 and differed in relatively small details such as sleek, slimline bumpers and overriders, an alternator instead of a dynamo and twin air cleaners; one for each carburettor. Other new features included padding over the instrument panel and reclining split-bench front seats.
Originally leaving the Brown’s Lane factory in November 1968 and painted in classic Jaguar red, it then was repainted in 1998 with the current and striking maroon colour you see today. Sitting on original steel wheels, this late model example, complete with spats and slim-line chrome bumpers, presents with complementary tan leather interior, walnut door cappings and dashboard of course. The chromework requires attention and viewing is recommended prior to bidding.]]
