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 a high
speed chase cars.

This particular car is a mid-production B-Spec model. delivered
in March 1962 via London concessionaires Stratstones of Mayfair to
first owner. the Marquis of Hertford. It underwent an older
body-off. chassis-up professional restoration in the Midlands some
15 years ago. fully documented and photographed. Finished in
midnight blue with pale grey interior. the car has only been used
as a second car since and is still in very good mechanical
condition and ready to be driven. It does require some
cosmetic attention to the paintwork but is priced to sell
accordingly. With the vehicle. is a large history file. br/>photographic records of the restoration. workshop manual. and the
original buff log book. recent full MoT test certificate and six
months' road tax. With only such a small number of SP250s produced
in total. it is believed that fewer than 700 still survive making
this one of the rarest but affordable British classic cars
available.
