Daimler Super V8 LWB Supercharged. This lovely 1998 car has every conceivable extra and is in super condition for the year. The car is finished in Sapphire Blue Metallic with Ivory hide interior. It is fitted with walnut finishings, rear picnic tables, rear sun blinds, heated seats front and back, front ‘memory’ seats (with fore and aft control for adjusting passenger seat from rear), and a full sound system with multi-stack CD player.

This model has the ‘J Gate’ semi- automatic transmission with cruise control and sport mode (which alters the gear change points and firms up the electronically controlled ‘adaptive suspension’). It also has power fold door mirrors, auto sensing lights, auto tinting rear view mirror, lamb’s wool thick pile over carpets protecting the original carpets from new, and paintwork that was ‘Dynaglaze’ protected when new. The car comes with all the original hand book pack, two sets of keys, and original tool packs (in boot and under bonnet).

The significant file of quality service history, including the original purchase invoice for £65,000, shows that this car has been cared for during its life, and is in all probability, in better condition than many others with lower mileage. Although there are several company name changes in the registration document, the service history indicates that the original owner owned the car until 2015, with only two subsequent owners until the vendor bought it, which probably explains its well pampered condition.

Recent expenditure includes new matching tyres, a new heavy-duty battery, and an intermediate service including oil and filter. The car comes with a new MoT to 7th July 2022 with no advisories. Previous MoT advisories have been professionally repaired. The vendor states that the engine is dry, smooth and powerful, and the gearbox changes with silky smoothness. The wheel arches have been rust treated and under-sealed. Any work needed has been taken care of, and everything works as intended. A very usable and appreciating classic to use and enjoy, and an absolute luxury to drive.
