1966-1969 DAIMLER Sovereign specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
There was probably a very good case for the 1966-69 Sovereign – the badge-engineered version of Jaguar’s big 420 – making use of the existing 4.5-litre Daimler V8 engine to power it. Unfortunately, Jaguar didn’t hear it, and so the Sovereign came out with the same 4235cc
six-cylinder XK engine as the 420. Not that this made it a bad car, but it did take away some Daimler distinctiveness as the only different touches were a fluted grille, the ‘D’ bonnet mascot, ‘Daimler’ on the cam cover and assorted badges.
