From 1972 Jaguar's 5.3-litre V12 engine was available in the XJ range, and for the Daimler version a name used by the company from 1926 to 1938 was revived. Sir William Lyons had retired from Jaguar in 1972 and the new chairman was FRW (Lofty) England. Lofty England had been a Daimler apprentice from 1927 to 1932 and taken second place in the first ever RAC rally driving a 30/40 hp Daimler Double-Six and so he decreed that the new V12 Daimler would be known as Double-Six. Unlike the Jaguar, the twelve-cylinder Daimler had the same radiator grill as its six-cylinder sibling, and externally only the badges distinguished them. The Double-Six followed the same changes as the Sovereign from Series I to Series III, although the Sovereign name was transferred to Jaguar, the Double-Six name remained with Daimler throughout Series III production, which continued until 1992. The Daimler Double Six offered here is finished in metallic Alpine green with doeskin leather and is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition having just returned from having the paintwork refreshed. It is said to drive superbly with a strong gearbox changing and kicking down when needed. There is a huge history file including the full Daimler book pack and all the manuals. The service book shows the car has mainly been looked after by Jaguar main dealers and there are numerous receipts for work carried out. The car has it's original toolbox and jacking kit.
