DAIMLER DOUBLE 6-50

Saloon, limousine, landaulette.

Really two six-cylinder engines at 60deg., each with its own dual ignition and fuel arrangements. Always centrally-barred radiator, and double-skinned alligator bonnet is an excellent sound-damper. Vacuum servo brakes standard. A 'short' saloon's 18ft 7in long, carries 24 gallons of petrol and 7 gallons of water, and should top 80mph on 150bhp. Royal-type limousines have a 163ins wheelbase!
