Daimler SP250

It’s Bri’ish innit, light old time sports car, convertible, v8 … what else is there to say?

But is it cool?

I’ve had a few rides in it and it’s a terribly fun car, but style wise is not my cup of tea. Uncool I am afraid

I think it is cool.

Big engine, light car, rear wheel drive and it is British.

But it is ugly, there is no escaping that.

Can ugly be cool? Yes - I think so.

Is this ugly? Yes - I think so.
But is this cool? No - I don't think so.

In this case ugliness has defeated cooldom.

I like these, not many people realise they were used by traffic police both in the UK and Australia and NZ.

I'd say "distinctive" rather than ugly but it didn't stop me wanting one many years ago, mostly because it's a V8. Cool. Instead I scratched my V8 itch with a Triumph Stag. The only thing that didn't go wrong with that I think was the supposedly very delicate engine which sounded gorgeous, especially up near the red line!

Just proves how daft, dopey, and doggone confused my memory is, as I thought that was a Daimler Dart, whereas the Daimler SP 2.5 was a gutless 4 door saloon that wouldn't pull the skin off that proverbial rice pudding!

Fi-glas body were that heap of sporty sheet not?
