Not to be confused with Daimler Benz (Germany), The Daimler Company Limited was an independent firm that operated out of Coventry, Great Britain since 1896.
In 1973, Daimler introduced a very powerful model called Daimler Double Six. It was so named as the company wanted to pay tribute to their first 12-cylinder engine car in the 1920’s. By 1975, the company replaced the four carburettors, and fuel injection was introduced giving the car more power. Under the bonnet there was the same 5.3 litres of engine.
Vanden Plas is a coachbuilder from Belgium who also had an operational unit in Great Britain. Vanden Plas was entrusted by Daimler to build their own version of the Daimler Double Six. What came out of the factory of Vanden Plas was unique – the most luxurious Daimler ever built. Over 1700 of these were built.
This metal scale model is their Series 2 variant.
