  • 67969 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Essen event, 11 - 12 April 2019. Estimate:18.000 - 25.000 Offered from the Youngtimer CollectionLovely Black over Grey colour schemeJapanese-delivery exampleAmong the final X308 Daimlers Royal approval for Daimlers dates back to 1900, and the Super V-8 continued that tradition. Among buyers of the X308 model was Queen Elizabeth II who ordered one for personal use. Another was commissioned as the official car for UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.Improvements in quality and the new AJ-V8 4-litre engine marked a return to form for the brand. The Super V-8, launched in 1997, had the same supercharged engine as the XJR, offering 370 bhp and a 241 km/h top speed but with a softer suspension. Just 2,387 examples were made by 2002 when production ended.Among the last was this long-wheelbase edition finished in special-order black with contrasting dove grey leather interior and beige lambswool carpets. Options included chrome door mirrors and the leaper bonnet mascot. Delivered new to Japan, it remained there until 2016 when it was purchased by the previous owner and exported to Switzerland. Good enough to British royalty and politicians, these Daimlers served their owners well, and this example would certainly suit someone looking to travel in luxury. Aus der Youngtimer Collection Wunderschöne Farbkombination schwarz mit grauem Innenraum Erstauslieferung in Japan Einer der letzten Daimler X308Die Anerkennung als britischer Hoflieferant geht bei Daimler auf das Jahr 1900 zurück. Und der Super V-8 führt diese Tradition weiter: unter den Käufern des X308 fand sich auch Königin Elisabeth II, die ein solches Fahrzeug für ihren persönlichen Gebrauch orderte. Ein weiterer wurde für den Einsatz als offizielles Fahrzeug des britischen Premierministers Tony Blair bestellt. Qualitätsverbesserungen und der neue AJ-V8 Vierlitermotor stellten eine Rückkehr zu alter Form für die Marke dar. Der Motor im 1997 vorgestellten Super V-8 ist der gleiche wie im Modell XJR, er leistet 375 PS und erlaubt eine Höchstgeschwindigkeit von 241 km/h. Der einzige Unterschied hier ist die weniger straffe Fahrwerksabstimmung. Bis zum Produktionsende 2002 wurden nur 2387 Exemplare hergestellt. Eines der letzten war diese Langversion in schwarzem Sonderlack mit kontrastierendem taubengrauen Leder und beigen Lammwollteppichen. Extras beinhalten Chromspiegel und den springenden Jaguar. Dieses neu in Japan ausgelieferte Exemplar verblieb dort bis 2016, als es vom jetzigen Besitzer in die Schweiz importiert wurde. Diese Daimler waren gut genug für Könige und Premierminister und sind eine hervorragende Wahl für eine Reise im Luxus.
