Today very much part of the classic car scene around the world, the Daimler SP250 sports car has a fascinating and eventful history. The idea of staid and traditional Daimler building an open sports car is surprising enough in itself: that the car should be fiberglass-bodied, V8 engined and have a daring futuristic appearance stretches credibility to the limit...but thatas exactly what the company did produce between 1959 and 1964. A bold new design, the aDarta as it was originally to be called, should have been struggling Daimleras savior and a springboard to a range of new models, including saloons and coupes. Things didnat quite work out that way and Daimler was acquired by Jaguar, which led to the SP250as Edward Turner-designed V8 engine being used in a Daimler-badged version of the Jaguar Mkll saloon. Here is the full story of the SP250 including concept, development and production history. Also covered are related models, specials, buying and restoration, chassis numbers, production numbers, color schemes, clubs and specialists.
