An exceptional Daimler Double Six V12 luxury saloon


Built by Jaguar, the luxurious Daimler Double Six was a new V12 Daimler, built from 1972 to 1997. Long associated with power, distinguished British motor vehicle manufacturer Daimler was the choice of royalty for decades, from its early beginnings in 1896.

A division of Jaguar Cars, from 1960, Daimler named the Daimler Double-Six after the original Daimler V12s of the twenties and thirties, when it was first introduced to the market in 1972.

With its V12 engine, the Daimler was based on the Jaguar bodyshell, chassis and mechanics. The fluted grille, interior and Daimler badging were the most distinct differences from its Jaguar counterpart. Latter years saw only small changes to the bumper and grille, as well as a larger engine.

In 1972, the Vanden Plas had a longer wheelbase and a black vinyl roof. The Double-Six Series II introduced a two-door notchback coupe in production from 1975 to 1977. Later, between 1993 and 1994 it had another upgrade. In its last few years it received a final facelift before production ended in 1997.
