Tuesday’s Obscure Car of the Day


Today’s obscure car is the 2006 Daimler Super Eight. It is essentially a fancified Jaguar XJ long-wheelbase sedan fitted with all the top-level XJ options. Daimler began building cars in 1897 and was purchased by Jaguar in 1962. Over the past couple of decades, all Daimlers have been little more than gussied up and rebadged Jaguar XJs the last being the 2002 models.

Daimler once stood for a unique fluted radiator grille cars evoking the memory of a succession of classic automobiles that range from the famous Double Six V12-engined Daimlers of the 1920s that were owned by King George V of England, through to the Sovereign and Double Six models of the 1960s and ’70s. Daimler is Britain’s oldest and most respected marque and has signified luxury, sophisticated style and individual statement.

The car featured here has unique exterior features that include fluted grille and trunk trim, chrome-highlighted taillights, and bespoke wheels. Inside, the car has supple leather, picnic trays, and Daimler badging. Under the hood resides the Ford derived 390-hp, 4.2-liter supercharged V-8 found in the XJR and Super V8 which is good for five-second sprints to 60 mph. Although it shares a lot with the Jaguar The Super Eight will cost nearly $150,000 in the United Kingdom, it won’t be offered here in the U.S.
