It is now offered complete with green log book, Heritage Certificate, original handbook and a comprehensive history that includes a sizeable collection of invoices. The V8-250 was a derivative of the all-conquering MKII Jaguar. Its name was drawn from its engine - a lightweight, eight-cylinder one of 2,548cc. This was mated to a Borg Warner three-speed automatic or four-speed manual gearbox. Production continued until manufacture of all MKII derivatives ceased in 1969, by which time some 17,620 of the Daimler version had been made.
