Daimler - Sovereign XJ6
The Daimler Sovereign was a built by Jaguar in Coventry. It was introduced in 1966, and was the first Daimler-badged car to have a Jaguar engine - marking the end for the Edward Turner designed V8 engines Jaguar had inherited when it took over the Daimler company in 1960. The first Sovereign was a luxury version of the Jaguar 420 saloon, itself based on the Jaguar S-Type with a revised four-headlight nose reminiscent of the Jaguar Mark X. The main external difference on the Daimler was the traditional fluted radiator grille.


The 420 and S-Type were replaced by the Jaguar XJ6 in September 1968, although the Daimler remained on sale until October 1969, when a new XJ6-based Sovereign was introduced, once again externally virtually identical to the Jaguar other than the grille and badging.

The Daimler Sovereign name remained in use for the Series II version of the XJ6, but in 1983, during the run of the Series III, the range was re-named with the base model named the Jaguar XJ6, the more luxurious version named the Jaguar Sovereign, and the top-of-the-range simply known as the Daimler, without a model name.
