New tooling also brings a superb Daimler sports car from the 1959-1964 era to Oxford's 1:43 series in the unlikely livery of the Metropolitan Police. Manufactured by the Daimler Company in Coventry, it 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. Around thirty black SP250s were used by the Traffic Department of London's Metropolitan Police, primarily to catch speeding motorists. The Police vehicles were fitted with the automatic gearbox option, considered more suitable for round the clock urban use, which also extended to some vehicles being used by the traffic police in other major counties in the UK. Our replica SP250 is painted in a gloss black with beige hood in the upright position. The interior is dark orange with a beige floor and the model is registered 550 CLU. Several refinements from the standard vehicle were required for specific Police use and they have all been incorporated into our authentic model. They include bumpers without over-riders and single spotlight mounted on the front bumper. Additional interior fittings include a radio, speedometer, an additional mirror, raised roof component, automatic transmission gear stick, printed interior door handles and window winder handle and a single driver's side wing mounted mirror. Traffic duties must never have felt so good for the Police team behind the wheel of this little gem! It will also be an interesting addition for those collectors specialising in this model category.
