Whitebox 1/43 Daimier Double Six 50 Convertible 1931 (beige/grey) WHI198

Daimler wanted to take an extra step after Rolls-Royce released their feature-rich Phantom in 1925. To stay competitive, Laurence Pomeroy decided to make the most of Daimler’s engineering and adopt sleeve valves in a new seven litre ‘Double Six’ V12. To do so, he mated two existing 6-cylinder, 25/85 hp engines to a common aluminum crankcase and refined the sleeves to reduce oil consumption.
