1987 Daimler Double Six

Daimler Sovereign was a name applied by British manufacturer Jaguar Cars to a sequence of luxury automobiles built by it but carrying the Daimler badge between 1966 and 1983. The Daimler Sovereigns were based on contemporary Jaguar bodyshells, chassis and engines in an example of badge engineering. Jaguar Cars took over The Daimler Company in 1960 and the 1966 Sovereign was the second Daimler to be based on a Jaguar model. The first was the 2½-litre V8 with an engine designed by Edward Turner. Unlike the Daimler 2½ litre, the Sovereign had a Jaguar engine, marking the end for the Turner-designed engines. The V12 versions of the Daimler, available from 1972 to 1997, were named Daimler Double Six after the original Daimler V12s.

Please explain why therefore only a default bid to R50 000?


The current bid is at R25 000 and the preset bid increment is R25 000 so the next bid will total R50 000. The bid increment decreases as bidding gets closer to the reserve. - Stuart CCA 1 week, 3 days ago


Thanks. Understand. Didn’t see the increment value was so high. - John Pearson 1 week, 3 days ago
