Introduced at the New York Motor Show of 1959. the Daimler Dart
was a V8 powered sports car with controversial styling. The
Dart name was soon dropped after the threat of legal action from
Chrysler who had a car of that name within their Dodge division;
thereafter this new sports car was known as the SP250. Power
was provided by the 2. 5 litre. Edward Turner designed. V8 that soon
became revered for the smoothness in its power delivery with 140bhp
on tap. Independent double wishbone front suspension at the
front and half elliptical springs at the rear with a live rear axle
kept the car on the road with stopping power supplied by hydraulic
disc brakes on all four corners. The coachwork was
constructed with glass reinforced plastic providing a tough. strong
and lightweight shape that enhanced performance with exciting and
non-traditional looks. The 120mph plus capability was
recognised by the police and they were soon being used as high
speed chase cars.

Originally registered overseas. this Daimler Dart was
repatriated and registered in the UK in 1968.

This righthand drive example is fitted with the preferred manual
transmission. making this a fun and interesting car to drive. The
V8. 2547cc engine is smooth and quiet in operation. as is normally
the case for these sturdy Daimler units. This SP250 is in good
order throughout and is best described as a very tidy. useable car
and one that can be enjoyed immediately. The red coachwork is in
fine order as is the interior. Supplied with a V5 registration
document and an MoT test certificate valid until July 2016. These
stylish. slightly quirky sports cars have always had a strong
following; this is a great opportunity to own a good example of
these collectable and appreciating classics.
