DAIMLER 4½-LITRE

Limousine, landaulette, Sedanca de Ville, various specials.

Enlarged V26 with essentially the same chassis, so performance adequate for its class. Styling usually perpendicular with no concessions to fashion though Rippon made a few lovely touring limousines. Royal Daimler of its time and likely to come cheaper than a 4-litre, though you're stuck with two tons, at least 6ft of height, and 13mpg.
