Built from 1962 through to 1969, the Daimler 2.5 V8/V8 250 was the first car to be produced by the marque on the Jaguar platform, and the last Daimler to feature its own engine. As a derivative of the all-conquering MkII Jaguar although its fluted grille and more luxurious interior gave the car an air of exclusivity. Its name was drawn from its Edward Turner-designed engine - a lightweight, eight-cylinder 2,548cc V8 shared with the Dart. Production continued until the manufacture of all MkII derivatives ceased in 1969, by which time some 17,620 of the Daimler version had been made, making it the best-selling car in Daimler’s history.

Finished in Green with this model’s pretty single-blade bumpers, this elegant right-hand drive V8 250 is fitted with a 3-speed automatic transmission. It possesses a wonderfully complementing sumptuous Red leather interior with a split front bench seat configuration and a wooden dash. It all feels very exclusive. For sunnier days of luxury, there is even a sliding full-length fabric sunroof. Supplied new to distributors Jaguar Daimler House of Merseyside in 1968 ‘CVG 480F’ soon found its way to France where it resided before being repatriated back to the UK in 2022.

A late example of the 250 V8 with the odometer displaying 96,700 recorded miles in current ownership the Daimler has benefited from the fitment of EZ power steering, overhaul of the odometer and has received a new set of plugs. The Daimler is accompanied by extensive French invoices and receipts, original owner's manual, Heritage certificate, maintenance chart, parts catalogue and current V5c document. These Daimler’s offer a smooth delivery of power from the V8 mated to the Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, burbling along in comfort.
