The final all-new sports car to be offered by Daimler, and the most interesting of all. With its fibreglass body and 2.5-litre V8 engine, the SP250 was quick and agile. It was originally called ‘Dart’, but Chrysler forced Daimler to drop the name. There were problems – the fibreglass used to crack, and the handling wasn’t as good as it should have been – and following Jaguar’s takeover of Daimler, the appealing roadster was on borrowed time, as it was considered a rival to the E-type. Numbers are low, and that helps keep values up.
