The launch of the Jaguar XJ6 in 1968 and its Daimler sister that
followed in 1969. redefined expectations in the luxury car sector.
The new model truly 'moved the goalposts'. setting new standards in
comfort. refinement and handling. A waiting list was quick to form
and enthusiasm remained strong upon the introduction of the Series
II cars in 1973. The standard or long wheelbase saloon models were
joined later that year by a striking new variant. an elegant
pillarless coupé. all being built on the short-wheelbase chassis
and with black vinyl-covered roofs. Available with either the 4. 2
litre straight-six XK unit or the fabulous 5. 3 litre. V12. This
handsome design retained the saloon's supple all-round independent
coil and wishbone suspension. disc brakes and power steering.
Performance was predictably strong with both variants reputedly
able to exceed 120mph. Rarer than its Jaguar brother. just 1. 77
Daimler Sovereign 4. 2 Coupés are thought to have been produced by
the time production ended in 1978 with 613 built in 1977 and only
six in the final year.

This fine example is fitted with the 4. 2 litre straight-six
engine and was purchased new by a Mr. Kenneth Hegan of Benfleet and
was registered with a personal registration number AVX 1G. He sold
the car with its current registration in February 1984. The car
changed hands a couple of times before being purchased by Elaine
Senton in 1988 who had the Daimler repainted in 1993 changing the
colour from bronze to blue. In 1995 the car was sold to Stuart
Jeffrey before being purchased by Mr James Waters in 2001. Mr
Waters took the car to his home in Germany and. in 2002. had the
car restored. The coupé returned to the UK in 2008 and was
registered to his son Brain Waters; he sold the car in 2013.
Finished in Squadron Blue with black vinyl roof and blue leather
interior. this Daimler Sovereign Coupé is supplied with a V5C
registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires at the
end of October 2014. the original handbook and a large file
containing old MoT test certificates. invoices. registration
documents for both the UK and Germany and a file from the DVLA
recording the ownership of this car. Daimler cars have always been
associated with being luxurious and exclusive because of the Royal
connections. and this one is no exception.
