1932 Daimler Double Six

Here's a motor car! This 1932 Daimler Double Six, with coachwork by Gurney Nutting (after a design by H R Owens), was commissioned by director Herbert Wilcox for his wife Anna Neagle. With its bonnet at eight feet long and the wheel-base of well over twelve feet, it is only just shorter than the Bugatti Royale and the driver sits ten feet away from the front wheels. Only twenty six Double Sixes were ever made and this sports' saloon is probably the only one of its kind in the world. Recently fully restored, it represents about two million pounds' worth of driving pleasure.
