The Daimler Special Sports is based upon the post war DB18 chassis with several important modifications, the most notable being an overdrive gearbox, high ratio differential, hydro/mechanical brakes, alloy cylinder head and twin carburettors. The standard DB18 chassis had built in jacks and heater as standard, which also feature on this car. The title Special Sports is a bit of a misnomer, the car should rightly be regarded as a comfortable high speed touring car. Its has a seasoned ash frame, heavy upholstered seats, thick Wilton carpet and beautifully crafted wooden trim.
This car has had a ground up restoration, and when completed was the centerfold in Practical Classics magazine.
