1991 Daimler Double Six 5.3

Jaguar Cars introduced the Daimler Double Six in 1972 as the Daimler version of the Jaguar V12 XJ saloon  from the original body style designed by Sir William Lyons. The V12 engine was developed continually until the last Series 3 XJ cars were built in 1992.

The Daimler Double Six and Jaguar XJ12 were seen in their day as the primary rivals to the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. The ride quality and smooth silent power of the V12 engine was, and is, considered by some to be better than the Shadow.

The Jaguar V12 engine is described by many engineers as a “hot wet engine,“ and at the end of a journey when emerging from the car you feel that a thoroughbred has transported you.

Like a steam locomotive the engine emits its own aromas of oil and heat which all seem just right.

Our 1991 car has been in the fleet since 1996 and continues to amaze and delight followers and newcomers to the Daimler Series 3 cars.

This car is finished in eye catching Solent blue metallic paintwork.

The leather trim of any classic car is special, but the maturing smell of this original car is wonderful and the magnolia hides piped in dark blue compliment the bodywork so well.
