A truly exceptional example of the much improved Series III Daimler Double Six in classic combination of Brooklands Green with Parchment full leather interior. Built in 1991 for the Japanese market, this still immaculate saloon was sold in Tokyo to its first and only Japanese owner, who we are told was a captain of industry, keeping his Daimler at his weekend home for very limited and leisurely use.
Very much in original condition, you can tell that this car led a highly pampered life and that the dry and warm climate preserved it beautifully for the first 20 odd years of its life. Prior to being imported, the car was serviced meticulously every year and completed a total of 39,000 miles supported by a complete and comprehensive fully stamped history.
Imported with all duties paid and an official age related UK registration and title allocated, the car has now enjoyed some 5 years in the UK. Having been maintained to the same oriental standards and even improved upon in some areas, this magnificent V12 saloon drives like new. The power is turbine smooth, the auto box is seamless, the ride is magic carpet and the steering light but firm. It is a joy to be in, either behind the wheel or as a passenger and whether travelling along at 70mph on the motorway or pottering around the village the experience is calm, relaxed and pleasurable.
For the UK, the car has been fitted with a correct mileage UK speedometer, the air conditioning has been totally renewed and blows very cool, engine gaskets have been attended to as have the cooling hoses – the car features cruise control and headlamp washer wipe the original toolbox is present, there is a 6CD changer in the boot and it is shod with brand new Pirelli tyres.
With impeccable Japanese and UK service and history, straight bodywork and excellent original paint, perfect glass, wonderful chrome detailing and an interior which looks like it has hardly been sat in, this truly is one of the finest Series III saloons we have ever seen. If you are looking for a powerful, elegant and reliable practical classic this car this is a must see.
