Daimler Sovereign Coupe 1977


Specifications


Description

The Daimler Sovereign coupe was the 6 cylinder / 4.2 litre model.

The Daimler coupes are the most prized by serious collectors as they were only produced in such small numbers. In total only 1,677 Daimler Sovereign coupe were produced. To date we only know of two (2) NZ NEW of these in New Zealand.

Interestingly, these cars were never shipped to the North American market, most of them went to the UK and European segments.  A mere handful made their way down to Australia.  In total only 2 Daimler Double Six coupes and 2 Daimler Sovereign coupes were imported by Jaguar Australia. These numbers have been 'swelled' with the private importation of 6 Daimler Double Six coupes and 18 Daimler Sovereign coupes. 

What is interesting about the Daimler XJC 's is that nowhere on the vehicle is there a badge or sign that says XJC !   The Jaguar XJC 's were badged XJ12C / XJ5.2C or XJ6C / XJ4.2C depending on which market they were sent to.  The Daimler variants were only given a single name badge positioned on the left hand side of the rear number plate. True to period they were in the 'script' style popular at that time. The Coupe's also had the distinctive 'fluted' chrome adornments to the engine grill and rear number plate, which were characteristic of all the Daimler models.  They also had the round Daimler 'D' script badging on the top of the grill and in the centre of the steering wheel.  

The Daimler coupes had a few minor differences from their Jaguar counterparts, apart from the badging and fluted chrome.  The Daimler coupes had their door cappings covered with black vinyl, rather than the matching colour to the rest of the interior.
