Jaguar Magazine flew the 24 hour haul to England in 2000 (at our expense) for Jaguar’s F1 launch at Lord Cricket Ground in London, and next day we went to Silverstone for a shakedown of its new F1 cars.
Unfortunately, the weather was freezing and ice on the track prevented running.
However, we hung in for many hours hoping, and one of the images our editor took that day was of Jackie Stewart’s new Daimler sandwiched between the Jaguar F1 transporters – remembering Ford (Jaguar’s owner then) bought the Stewart F1 team months before.
Now the same Daimler is for sale, and the seller states: “4.0 Super V8 SUPERCHARGED LWB 4dr Saloon. Presented in Mason’s Black Metallic with contrasting Cream/Beige Leather Interior. This car benefits from every available option due to the fact it was given to Jackie Stewart back in 2001. It has the Crystal Decanter and two glasses. Heated Electric Memory (Front) and Rear Seats, Electric Sunroof, Climate Control, Satellite Navigation, 4x Electric Windows, Electric Mirrors, Electric Steering Column Adjustment, Multi Function Steering Wheel, Alloy Wheels, Rear Parking Sensors, Tables in rear, Built in Jaguar/Motorola Mobile Phone x2, Cruise Control, 6 CD Changer, Remote Central Locking and more.”
They certainly got the date of first ownership wrong (we took this shot in very early January, 2000), but it is a very special car.
