The Daimler V8 250 was produced by Daimler from 1962 to 1969. It is known for its elegant design, luxurious interior and powerful engine. The V8 250 is powered by a 2.5 litre V8 engine, producing 140bhp and 155 lb-ft of torque, which provides a far smoother and more refined driving experience to its shoutier Jaguar cousin. The V8 250 was a popular choice among luxury car buyers in the 1960s due to its comfortable ride and high-end features, such as leather seats, wood trim, and electric windows. Its classic design, with its iconic fluted grille and sleek lines, has aged well and is still highly regarded by classic car enthusiasts.
This example is in fantastic original condition, with a lovely patina. It would appear the car has been repainted at some point in its life, but our vendor understands it has never needed any serious restoration works and it has just been well cared for throughout its 57 year life. Our vendor has cared for the car well since purchasing it in 2013, it has been serviced by Thomas Barclay Limited in 2013, 2014 and 2016, along with various other works. The car then visited Powerbell Services in 2017, 2018 and 2019 for servicing and new uprated brakes, front shock absorbers, fuel pump and a carburettor rebuild and service. The most recent service bill comes courtesy of A.J.Dunlop Ltd, who carried out a full service along with new brake pads and spark plugs. Offered to auction without reserve, this Daimler is sure to generate interest.
Guide Price: £7,000-£11,000
