The vehicles were used extensively as official state cars as in many countries, including by the British, Danish and Swedish royal families. Originally the cars were built at the Vanden Plas works in Kingsbury North London. Early examples bore the 'Daimler Vanden Plas' designation on treadplates and workshop manuals, but production moved to Jaguar in Coventry in 1979, where it continued until 1992. The move to Coventry also brought the third and most extensive facelift in the car's life, when larger bumpers and a revised rear number-plate surround were fitted. The car remained completely recognizable from its inception to the very last example built, remaining dignified, stylish and incomparably British. The British Royal Mews possesses of three Daimler DS420s for Royal use on state occasions and general use. The late Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother had four DS420 models over the years (all registered NLT1 or NLT2), including one of the last three cars to be produced in 1992 (the other two going to Queen Elizabeth II, and the other retained by Jaguar for use in Coventry.

The limousine is escorted by the Metropolitan Police motorcycle unit, and Moneypenny uses the cars unusual extra, a built-in laptop computer in the glove compartment! This particular car was originally built for Sir John Egan, chairman of Jaguar Cars as an office car, thus making it a one of a kind. Post Sir John's departure from the company the vehicle was retained by Jaguar for occasional VIP duties. With the closure of Jaguar Browns Lane plant it was gifted to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. Showing 69,000 miles from new, the vehicle has service records with stamps from Jaguars own service department and is in excellent condition throughout.
