DAIMLER DOUBLE 6-50 SPORTS

Sports saloon, drophead coupé.

Not quite credible even when you see it, with lowered radiator and underslung rear springs. Rides on 23ins wire wheels, and 154ins of wheelbase are matched by an 84ins long bonnet. Thirsty on fuel, oil and starter batteries. Watch it, there's one standard 50 around with lowered roofline to its body, but this saloon's not a Sports.
