The Daimler Double Six was the sister model of the Jaguar XJ 12. The Daimler Double Six was presented in the year 1973 and the coupe model in the year 1975. The Jaguar XJ V12 and the Daimler Double Six combined the qualities of a sports car and a limousine in one car. Both presented excellent road holding capabilities, were very fast and powerful, and were very comfortable and silent.
The cars were identical except for the grille and badges. The Daimler was the luxury brand meant for buyers who appreciated sheer comfort.
The Daimler Double Six was built from the year 1973 until 1979. The Double Six Coupe was only built for two years, from 1975 until 1977. Also there was a Long Wheel Base (LWB) model available. This model offered a lot more space for the passengers in the rear. The Daimler Double Six coupe and LWB models are reasonably scarce automobiles, only 399 coupes and 351 LWB models were built.
