More DB18 Model Info
The new luxurious Mulliner-built “Consort” first appeared at the 1948 London Motor Show as a modified edition of the well-proven standard 2.5 litre chassis. Improvements included new frontal treatment, with the distinctive fluted radiator grille swept back in an attractive curve and flanked by two headlamps now faired into the wings.
The well-known Daimler transmission, incorporating a fluid flywheel and preselector epicyclic gearbox was retained with finger tip control lever. This system gives almost infinite top gear performance down to zero speed. It being possible to start the Daimler smoothly from rest in top gear ( although best to use lower gears as well for normal driving ).
Inside the rear compartment there is considerable legroom with integrated footrests and flat floor area. Both front seats are easily adjustable, either individually or together to form a bench seat, the floor being clear of controls.
