The Double Six name has long had a reputation in the Daimler world, not only as a series of engines from the early 20th century, but as one of the most desirable and sought after models from the marque. Well styled, lavishly appointed and fitted with the E-Type derived 5.3 litre V12 engine to give it the performance credentials it longed for, the Series 3 XJ based Double Six is a thoroughly special car and in recent years, has garnered great levels of appreciation among enthusiasts.
With demand surging we are beginning to see Double Sixes brought in from other parts of the world and whilst South African cars were commonplace some years ago, Japanese market Double Sixes have been finding their way into the UK and present prospective buyers with an excellent way into the world of Daimler ownership.
This 1991 Double Six hails from one of the final years of V12 Series 3 production. The salt free roads of Japan have been kind to the car and it stands today in wonderful well preserved condition. With a new Wilton green carpet set on the inside and a timeless exterior colour scheme, this Double Six is primed and ready to widen the eyes of even the most astute Daimler enthusiast.

Chrome trim is of a high quality throughout and exhibits with a deep shine throughout
Glass work is of a marvellous standard and the panel gaps look to be straight and consistent across the car
Excellent trademark twin headlight setup at the front
Subtle Daimler badging along with the iconic front grille piece help denote this as a prestigious V12 Double Six
Plastic blend bumpers are in good clean shape front and rear
Four excellent 15” Daimler wheels reside at ground level refurbished with colour matched green inserts
A fifth full size spare wheel resides in the boot of the car
Fitted with a glorious 5.3 litre Jaguar V12 engine
One of the final years of the V12 Series 3 model
Engine mated to an impressively smooth automatic gearbox
Presented in honest, clean mechanical order
The car fires into life comfortably and quickly and is said to provide a great overall, impressively driving experience

The salt free roads of Japan have been kind to the Double Six as the underside looks to be in good solid order upon inspection
Double Sixes seldom come to market these days, with good cars seemingly being snapped up within inner enthusiast circles in an instant, making the one we have here all the more alluring for prospective buyers. A well specified magazine feature car, H976 LJO is a wonderful example of the esteemed model and makes an appealing case for classic Daimler ownership, realistically wanting for nothing to be enjoyed by a new loving owner.
