"I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful 1974 XJ6 that I have purchased from you. I live north of Auckland and so I did not view the car prior to purchase, but after speaking with Jesmond I did have the confidence to buy the car from the photos only. I’m very happy to say that my confidence was not misplaced and when the car arrived on the transporter this morning I was totally thrilled with the car. I have wanted one of these cars for 50 years and now I have achieved my ambition! Many thanks once again, I would recommend your company and service to anyone."Bob Stride, Auckland, New Zealand
The Daimler V8 was the result of a lengthy plan to give Daimler a presence in the executive car sector as well as the luxury sector.
The first attempt to bridge this gap was a joint venture with Vauxhall, which would have led to a restyled PA Cresta with a Daimler V8 and trim. The Jaguar buyout of 1960 put paid to this, and in 1962 the 2.5 V8 saloon was created.
The Turner engine gives the whole car a very different, more louche feel than the sporting Jaguars, and as such appealed to different customers when new and on the classic market.

It’s the forgotten MKII. Whilst prices for good Jags spiral ever higher, one can burble along in a Daimler V8 feeling just as pleased about life, but at a fraction of the cost. The trim level is higher than the MK2, too – when the 240 and 340 received Ambla trim, the Daimler V8-250 was never subjected to such indignities. They might not be as sporting – but let’s be honest, few MK2s are ever really driven in anger any more.
Car will be sold WOF’d and Registered.
