More details

The Daimler SP250, also called Daimler Dart, was built between 1959 and 1964. The SP250 was the last car introduced by the brand Daimler before the manufacturer was taken over by Jaguar in 1960. Daimler introduced the new model with the name “Dart”, but was forced to change the name because Chrysler/Dodge was owner of the “dart” trademark. Daimler called the car SP250, which was the internal project number.

Although Daimler had great expectations for the sales and production of the SP250, only 2.654 of this model left the factory chassis number 104425 being the last. It's understood that 1201 of these SP250’s were left hand drive cars.

At the introduction there were only four body colours available: Black, Ivory, Royal Red and British Racing Green. Since the end of 1960 it was possible to order a Daimler SP250 in Mountain Blue metallic. Every Jaguar color was possible for the SP250 after 1962, a result of the takeover by Jaguar.
