Daimler SP250 Dart at 60: the most unlikely police car ever?

The Telegraph | May 17, 2019 at 1:28 PM
  • In 1961 the London Metropolitan Police commissioned two Daimler SP250 ‘Dart’ traffic patrol cars – “the first sports models to be used by the Yard”.
  • There were to be eventually 26 Met Police Daimlers and one of their roles was to “encourage courtesy on the roads”.
  • The Daimler is still probably best remembered as a police car, and two surviving examples are 668 ELL, owned by Vincent Worrall, and Jonathan Smith’s 550 CLU.
