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.

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
