- Only one driver from new and occasionally chauffeur driven, with an odometer reading of 126,500 miles

- Garaged from new and full main dealer service history, plus original front and rear number plates

- Described by the vendor as being in 'good to very good overall' condition

This rather special one driver from new Daimler V8 4.0 LWB was purchased new by the vendor from Stratstone Jaguar in Mayfair, London, and specified with Madeira red paintwork and Ivory leather interior. Registered firstly to a leasing company, the vendor acquired the car from them upon his retirement. Occasionally chauffer driven to and from evening working engagements, the car has been garaged throughout the vendor's custodianship. Its Madeira Red paintwork is therefore largely free of the brown bubbling that inflicts so many Jaguars and Daimlers of this type and age. Most unusually, the Gentleman has had only authorised Jaguar dealerships maintain the car for him, with a comprehensively stamped replacement service book showing prompt annual services, and indicating that Grange Jaguar in Barnet last saw the car in September last year when the odometer recorded 124,713 miles. The current approximate odometer reading is 126.500 miles. Accompanying the service book is a seemingly complete hand-book pack, range brochure, and a rare item of the Jaguar/Daimler dealership hand-over video. The Motorola mobile telephone fitted when new is still located below the central armrest with the user manual in the hand-book pack. Described by the vendor as being in good to very good condition, this lovely car still wears its original Stratstone Jaguar front and rear number plates, a good sign of the cars originality. Being sold only due to a house move and the need for a smaller car, this Daimler will be much missed after 19 years of pleasurable ownership.
