The classic Daimler 250 V8 is a charming car, as luxurious on the road as a cruise ship is at sea.

We bring you here a most sumptuous Daimler V8 250.

Superficially, a Daimler 250 is a badge-engineered Jaguar Mk2. Only a discerning car buff would clock the moulded Daimler grille in place of the Jaguar mascot. But the Daimler isn't a leaping cat with a few changed spots, and should be celebrated as a big beast in its own right. It is powered by the last authentic Daimler engine after Jaguar's takeover – which is not only a dazzling piece of engineering, but imbues the car with a quite different character.

If Jaguar's legendary 3.8-litre is about pouncing faster than Mick Jagger in a singles bar, the more aristocratic Daimler arrives in its own good time. This is a car for driving to the House and then to the club, not for storming up motorways. The Edward Turner engine that found itself in a Williams Lyons body may have been designed for the sporty Daimler Dart but in a compact saloon achieves leisurely progress. It is because the Daimler finds high speeds rather undignified it has been overlooked by enthusiasts.
