This one-off car has been mentioned a few times on here, but thanks to Photobucket there’s no decent images. IMHO it’s much prettier than the fugly 250 :D

I believe that it’s just been put up for sale, so I thought I’d share some snaps :D

Me too. Looks like lots of Jaguar bits in the dashboard. Nice!

Just announced byJDHT

We are fortunate that the new owners of the unique Daimler SP252 have loaned the car to the JDHT to display next to the earliest SP250 which we bought from Canada last year. Sadly this coincided with having to close down the British Motor Museum and the Collections Centre because of COVID-19 so no-one will get to see it for the next month or two. As very few people know the story of SP252 we have uploaded details to the engineering section of our website. www.jaguarheritage.com/vehicle-collection/daimler-sp252
