The Daimler 2.5-V8 (or 2½ litre V8 ) was launched late in 1962, and was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mk2, but fitted with Daimler's 2.5 litres V8 engine; aside from the engine, fluted (furrowed brow) grille and rear number plate surround, badges, drive-train and some interior details (such as a split-bench front seat and a black enamel steering wheel) the Daimler 2.5- was otherwise indistinguishable from the Jaguar Mark 2. The 2.5-V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge. The Daimler V8 engine was more compact and therefore lighter than the six cylinder engine used in the Jaguar Mark 2, and weighed approximately 50 kg ("1 cwt") less. Spring and damper settings were revised accordingly to suit the altered weight distribution. At the end of 1965, the final drive ratio had been changed from 4.55:1 to 4.27:1, addressing complaints that the car as launched in 1963 had needed to exceed its recommended rev limit in order to reach its top speed, with a corresponding penalty in fuel consumption and engine noise and wear. The testers found the car refined and well equipped with efficient, if rather heavy, brakes. The engine and transmission were felt to be well matched
About this Daimler V8 250 Launched late in 1962 the 2.5 V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge; it was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mark 2 fitted with Daimler's Edward Turner designed lightweight 2.5-litre V8 engine and drive-train, that had been proven in the Daimler SP250 (Dart) sports car. Exterior details were a Daimler fluted grille and rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims and badges. Interior details included a split-bench front seat from the Jaguar Mark 1 and a black enamel steering wheel. Most cars were fitted with power-assisted steering but it was optional. Automatic transmission was standard; manual, with or without overdrive, became an option in 1967. A casual observer, though not its driver, might mistake it for a Jaguar Mark 2. The Daimler's stance on the road was noticeably different from a Mark 2. Three years after its launch, a Daimler 2½-litre V8 saloon with automatic transmission tested by the Britain's Autocar magazine in May 1966 had a top speed of 112 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 13.6 seconds and has a distinct V8 burble. Our example first registered August 1968 (G Reg) is in very good overall condition and
Just completely DAIMLER V8 Bare metal respray in correct blue, interior completely reupholstered at a cost of over £5000. Car will be finished in the next few months. Has history, will be MOTed and serviced prior to sale. Is an excellent example. Still much cheaper than MKII Jaguar. Got to be a cast iron investment.
£19950 Daimler was the first British motor vehicle manufacture established in 1893 and was renown for producing luxury motor cars. Bought by Jaguar in 1960 they continued to produce Daimlers in their Jaguar MK 2 bodies and were pitched as high end luxury motorcars. The 250 V8 is essentially a Jaguar MK 2 with the very well engineered SP250 (Dart) engine producing 140 bhp and capable of 110mph. First registered SFD 30F in 1968 and subsequently exported to Guernsey in 2008 and used sparingly. It comes with a comprehensive file, hand book, old buff log book and many MOT certificates dating back to 1976 which shows a mileage then of only 59,000 miles. The vehicle was obviously used very little since 1976 averaging only approximately 275 miles per year. This car has the all the signs of being a well-cared for motor car throughout its life. The V5C states only two owners since 1979. The car has mostly original paint and still is fitted with the wonderful original leather interior. We have recently worked through the mechanicals of the car undertaking works as required. Now a very nice car to look at and a very nice to drive. The car is currently located at our UK store in Dorset. The bod
