    When Jaguar got hold of Daimler, they had a great 2.5 litre, V8 engine that Edward Turner had recently designed and had been putting into the enigmatic Daimler Dart. They discovered it fitted nicely in the Mk. II bodyshell and had the added bonus of being quicker than the entry level 2.4 litre, XK units without out-shining the larger power plants. Being designed by Turner, it shares at least eight parts with the Triumph T120 Bonneville motorcycle: the V8-250 used domed motorcycle pistons to achieve its compression ratio. It's lighter-weight than the XK-engined Mk. II therefore gets better fuel economy and handles better. It had the option of a four-speed, manual gearbox with overdrive or a three-speed, automatic gearbox. These delightfully handsome Daimlers are becoming highly sought after and, when inspecting this vehicle, it is easy to understand why. First registered on 1st September 1966, the light blue coachwork on NBP 169D is unmarked and the dark blue leather interior has a beautiful patina, complimented by a highly figured wooden dashboard. The engine is very smooth, quiet in operation and the automatic transmission performed faultlessly on our test drive. More recently the

    This ultra original Daimler V8250 was first registered on the 6th March 1969 and supplied new in Ascot Fawn with Red trim. The Daimler is totally standard with factory supplied steel wheels, automatic transmission and original leather upholstery. PEL 603G has a recorded mileage of 82000 and is remarkably original still retaining its wonderful, honest original upholstery. From the condition of the trim it clear this is an honest, genuine car that has never been left to deteriorate. From the history with the car we can see it covered 80000 miles from 1969 to 1996 and over the last twenty years it has been annually MOT tested but has covered just 2000 miles being used for short local running. The Daimler has never required restoration and it's clear this is a car that has never required major work. The V8 engine runs superbly holding correct oil pressure, it offers good performance, sounds fabulous. The automatic gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the car handles and performs well. On arrival with us, the Daimler was put through a programme of mechanical work at our Malton Coachwork workshop and was treated to over £2000 of mechanical work. As a result the Daimler is totally on

It's lighter than the XK-engined Mk. II therefore gets better fuel economy and handles better, although lacks the performance of the 3.4 litre and 3.8 litre. It had the option of a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive or a more desirable three-speed automatic gearbox. This two owner from new Daimler V8 is a fine example, finished in dark blue with red leather interior. The coachwork is in very good order as is the chromework and the sumptuous interior has a delightful patina. The V8 engine purred into life when requested and sounded good. We are advised this Daimler drives as well as she looks with the automatic transmission operating smoothly and efficiently.
