Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Daimler SP250 ( Dart )
Daimler introduced a fast new roadster called the “Dart” at the 1959 New York Motor Show. The Daimler Dart was met with interest, but the model name had to be abandoned because Dodge had already trademarked it. Daimler re-named their Dart model “SP250”.

    One of my all time favourite British cars…and I’m a British car tragic!
    Not sure why…they can be a pain to work on, often unreliable, often slow, but I love Pommy cars!
    These things are absolutely beautiful…that gorgeous 2.5 litre hemi V8 under that beautiful and lightweight fibreglass body makes for a stunning combination!
    Nice pic, now on my fave list!

  • Know what you mean, mate. We know how to design them, but are no bloody use in building them :o)
    Thank you very much.

    Interesting piece of trivia – the Daimler V8 engine used in the dart was penned by Edward Turner, much more well-known for his association with Triumph motorcycle designs – most notably the Speed Twin and, of course, the Bonneville – amongst others. I’m not certain without checking, but it may have been the only car engine to have been designed by Turner during his career. It’s a good capture, by the way – very professional – and would not look out of place as a colour plate in a book about the model.
    Cheers
