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 2Â½-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
