Daimler's newest model is a massive Limousine. It is the only car in the program that doesn't have a direct Jaguar equvalent. It replaces the V8 Limusine built since 1961, but also, Since Jaguar/Daimler teamed up with BMC two years ago and recently with the Leyland group, the Vanden Plas Princess. It takes the chassis and engine from the Jaguar 420, and the body is manufactured by Vanden Plas. This luxury car, intended primarily for wealthy Englishmen is equipped with every imaginable luxury. Daimler is the oldest English car factory and is still in high esteem as for decades it was favored by the Royal family.
