By the time that this Daimler was built in the early nineties, the Double Six had been in production for nearly twenty years over three generations. It is also one of the last 5.3 litre V12 Double Sixes produced, and a very different proposition to the earlier, more classic, carburettor-fed V12 cars. This is a car that is modern enough to be used daily and enjoyed. To our knowledge, the car was originally supplied to Japan, and was imported to the UK at some point in 2021.
During its time with us, it has also been the recipient of a healthy amount of work, including new front brake discs and pads, a refurbished steering rack, multiple replacement injectors, a pair of new fuel tanks, new fuel senders, four new tyres, new wiper blades, replacement rear subframe mounting bushes, rear radius arm bushes, new rear fog lights (which were not originally fitted to this Japanese spec car), and a full service and MOT. The invoices for the parts acquired are included in the vehicle file.
The paintwork on this particular Daimler Double Six sadly does not present well, with sun damage to the lacquer on the roof, bonnet, front wings and boot lid, and with some scratches down the off-side of the car. There is a minor amount of bubbling around the rear screen, and a pair of small dents on the near-side rear wing. It is fair to say that you won’t buy this Daimler because of its fantastic bodywork, but it does have many other good qualities in our view.
The Savile Grey interior presents well with little in the way of wear or damage, and with roughly 108,000km (roughly 67,000 miles) on the clock, it isn’t high mileage car either. With so much glass and slim pillars, the left hand driving position isn’t an issue, and if anything makes this car even more suited to European road trips in comfort and style.
Sadly the car isn’t accompanied by much in the way of history, with only the paperwork generated during its time in the UK in its file. This includes MOTs, and of course all of the parts invoices for work carried out.
