An unusual departure for a firm more noted for its stately limousines, the SP250 sports car was Daimler's final fling before its acquisition by Jaguar. Aimed at the North American market and launched in 1959, the SP250 employed a separate ladder-type chassis on which sat controversially styled glassfibre coachwork manufactured by Daimler themselves. Four-wheel disc brakes were an unusual feature at the time, but unquestionably the car's biggest virtue was its 2.5-litre V8 engine, designed by the legendary Edward Turner of Triumph motorcycles fame. An outstandingly flexible unit, the smaller of Daimler's two V8s produced 140bhp, an output good enough to propel the SP250 to a top speed of 125mph. In keeping with the demands of its intended market, automatic transmission was available as an option. The model survived Jaguar's 1960 take-over, benefitting from its new owner's attention that resulted in the much-improved 'B' version. Introduced in April 1961, the SP250 'B' boasted a stiffer chassis and thicker glassfibre coachwork, while its 'C' replacement, introduced in April 1963, differed only in detail. Sadly, the Jaguar E-Type's arrival meant the SP250's days were numbered and production ceased in 1964.This lovely example of this rare model is presented in superb condition throughout having been totally nut and bolt restored over a five year period between 2010 and 2015. All invoices, as well as a full photographic history of the work carried out, can be seen in the history file. Its light blue paintwork is in lovely condition as is the dark blue leather interior, complimented by its matching tonneau and hood. The car does retain its original factory hard top which is unrestored and has covered a mere 2,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt. It also benefits from a rack and pinion steering unit, new stainless steel exhaust, modern seat belts and an electronic ignition. The history file is extremely comprehensive and makes for fascinating reading with invoices going as far back as 1962 and a small note book belonging to one of the owners in 1962, who recorded how much fuel he put in the car, at what mileage and what the cost was! Remarkable! The car also comes with its original owner's handbook and a small handbook supplement for accessories and extras. This is one of the finest SP250s on the market and being the series 'B', is certainly the more desirable.
