With its silhouette tracing back to the original early Jaguar XJ model, of the late 60's, Jaguar / Daimler needed to refresh the XJ so for the first time in its history and in 1977 they went to an outside styling house, Pininfarina, to re-design the basic structure.  With new lighting, impact absorbing bumpers, a larger glass area, flush mounted door handles and more changes to the interior - the Series 3 model was born and with its 5.3 litre V12 engine, lavishly appointed interior and subtle exterior styling queues the Daimler Double Six, was without doubt the pinnacle of Jaguar / Daimlers stable.

With an interesting build history we understand this Daimler Double Six was originally destined for the overseas market, but as a canceled order the car remained in the UK, with UK RHD / home market chassis number assigned and as such was pre-registered to Jaguar Cars Ltd and then immediately sold to its first keeper, Mr Parry from Surrey, on the 2nd April 1992. With an estimated list price in 1992 of £66,000, the Double Six represented great value for money compared to the likes of Rolls Royce & Bentley and its no wonder they were such a success with Ministerial / Executive types thanks to their fantastic level of specification:

  • 5.3 litre V12 fuel-injected engine - 285bhp.
  • GM 3 speed Automatic gearbox.
  • 15" 'Kent' alloys wheels with matched Michelin 215/15/70 tyres
  • Silver Frost metallic paint.
  • Saville Grey full leather interior.
  • Air conditioning with rear ventilation.
  • Burr Walnut fascia, centre console and door capping.
  • Electric height adjustment for front seats, plus lumbar support.
  • Cruise Control.
  • Electric windows front & rear.
  • Central Locking.
  • Electric Mirror adjustment.
  • Twin fuel tanks.
  • Passenger vanity mirror.
  • Pioneer stereo.
  • 6 disc CD Changer.
  • Tinted laminated glass.
  • Under bumper front fogs.
  • Rear headrest plus rear centre armrest.
  • Sheepskin rear foot mats.
  • Rear reading lights.
  • Stainless steel sill guards.
  • Mudflaps front & rear.

With only 3 previous keeper, this sublime Daimler Double Six has lead a truly cosseted life spending many years living in Guernsey and as such she has driven only 30k miles in the last 30 years....just 1.000 miles per year! Needless to say the car remains in amazing condition and save for a few tiny stone chips this Daimler is as close to 'new' as we think you'll ever find. Opening the doors and stepping in, the quality continues, you're immediately meet by a wonderfully light and airy cabin, the smell of from the leather interior is just amazing, it's no wonder Ministers and the PM chose to travel in style and whether your the driver, or front / rear seat passenger you can't help but feel that this Double Six is a very special car. A twist of the ignition key and the V12 comes to life and bar the initial start-up there's little to confirm that the 5.3 litre, 285bhp, engine is running apart from the visual clues from the classic 6 dial instrument cluster and on selecting 'D' / Drive the Daimler eases away in almost serene silence, cossetting its occupants in absolute luxury, the ride quality really is a class apart.

Supporting the superlative condition this Daimler Double Six comes with a history file that most classic car owners could only hope to see. There's the full Daimler book back, stamped service schedule with a remarkable 22 service stamps, supporting MOT history, correspondence and magazine clippings from the Jaguar Enthusiast Club, a Jaguar / Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, untouched original tool kit, jack & brace, unused spare wheel and a supplementary box-file documenting the cars ongoing maintenance with invoicing in excess of £22,000! Whether your a Jaguar / Daimler enthusiast looking to enhance your collection or a classic car enthusiast looking for something truly special to enjoy on high days and holidays we feel this Daimler Double Six V12 is an unrepeatable example, the finest there is and with all that luxury we're happy to drive her anywhere!
