1967 250 v8 mint condition! For Sale

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 engin. 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.
