    1:43 SCALE   Add to Checkout   Oxford Logo

We launched the new 1:43 scale Daimler SP250 (Daimler Dart) earlier this year with its hood in the upright position. Our second release has a celebrity feel to it, being a replica of TV presenter and motoring journalist Quentin Willson's car. It comes as an open topped version with cherished number plate UGS 5 and is painted a superb gloss red. Manufactured by the Daimler Company in Coventry between 1959 and 1964, the SP250 was the last car to be launched by Daimler before its parent company sold the marque to Jaguar Cars in 1960. Originally described as a 2 + 2 sports car, it came with a fibreglass body, either a 4-speed manual or 3-speed automatic gearbox and fitted with a 2.5 litre iron-block V-8 140 hp engine. Our model features a black interior with detailed dashboard instrument panel, automatic transmission gear stick, printed interior door handle and window winder handle and black flooring. The folded hood behind the seats is also black. There is a single driver's side wing mounted mirror. Further attention to authentic detail sees the model with spoked wheel hubs and bumpers with over-riders.
