The Daimler limousine DS420. popularly known as the Daimler Limousine. is a large limousine produced by The Daimler Company Limited between 1968 and 1992. The vehicles have been used by the British. nbsp;Danish and Swedish royal houses. The car is still commonly used in the wedding. funeral. and hotel trades.


Origins[edit]

The DS420 began production in 1968. replacing the DR450 which had been based on the Majestic Major. Unlike its predecessor. it had no Daimler engineering. but was entirely a Jaguar product. utilising the 4. 2 litre version of the Jaguar XK straight-six engine. It also replaced the Vanden Plas 4-Litre Princess Limousine. and was initially produced at the Vanden Plas works inKingsbury. North London. It was announced on 11 June 1968. [3]

Description[edit]

The Limousine was based on the floorpan of Jaguar's 420G flagship (not to be confused with the smaller Jaguar 420). but with a wheelbase extended an extra 21 in (533. 4 mm). The frontal styling was similar to the original Daimler Sovereign. with the Jaguar four-headlight treatment first seen on the 420G's predecessor. the Mark X. mated to a Daimler radiator grill bearing the traditional fluting. Jaguar Mark X/420G underpinnings were also apparent from the twin ten gallon fuel tanks set in each of the rear wings. each with its own electric SU pump selected by a dashboard mounted switch. [4]

The driver sat on a full width bench seat in a relatively upright position which was said to make length-wise adjustment for different sizes of driver unnecessary. although there was 2. 75 in (7 cm) of telescopic adjustment available on the low-set steering wheel. [4]

Three of the six rear passengers sat on a bench-seat behind the glass division in opulent comfort — the DS420's rear seat spanning over 6 feet (1. 8 m) in width. Three more passengers could fit on occasional fold-up seats[2] but the DS420 was twelve inches shorter. on wheelbase 4 inches shorter. much lighter and with an engine two-thirds of the size of the very exclusive Rolls-Royce Phantom VI. The Daimler was always half the price of even an "off-the-peg" standard series production long wheel base Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. [5]
