DAIMLER DB18 SPORTS SPECIAL

2/3 seater drophead coupÈ, Hooper Empress saloon.

Not really sports, for all those 85bhp and twin carbs: it weighs 37 1/2 cwt. But itíll waffle along in overdrive top at 400rpm and has pleasant road manners. Barker's ally-panelled coupe preferred, though its ash frame can rot. A pleasant gentleman's carriage.
