Daimler was an independent British motor vehicle manufacturer founded in Coventry by H. J. Lawson in 1896. The company bought the right to use the name Daimler from Gottlieb Daimler himself – one of the key founders of Daimler-Benz (Mercedes). The company ran into financial difficulty n 1904 and was acquired by the Birmingham Small Arms Company or BSA. BSA later became famous for manufacturing motorcycles, but it made cars prior to World War II and in 1933 bought the Lanchester brand – making it a subsidiary of Daimler.
Daimler was given the Royal Warrant to supply cars to the monarchy in 1902 and retained it until the 1950s when it was replaced by Rolls-Royce – an indicator of the quality and luxury associated with the brand.
The 1950s saw Daimler try to widen their appeal, making a smaller model, abandoning the Lanchester brand and making a sports car. These moves were not hugely successful, and BSA sold the company to Jaguar in 1960. This move saw Jaguar adopting the brand as their premium product. Inlcluded int he early Jaguar models were the beautiful variant of the Mark II sports saloon and the instantly recognisable Daimler DS420 limousine.
Keeping in line with being Jaguar’s premium brand, the Daimler Company found (and finds) customers around the world from governors of principalities, presidents and monarchy.
Daimler also produced buses for the everyday folk between 1951 and 1972, both single and double deckers.
The Jaguar ownership ended in 1966, with BMC buying the brand. BMC (or BMH British Motor Holdings as they became) owned the brand for just 2 years before selling to British Leyland. BL retained the brand until 1984 when Jaguar re-acquired it.
Ford purchased Jaguar in 1989 for £1.6Bn which meant Daimler was now owned by Ford – which reinstated it as the premium Jaguar brand product.
Since 2007 the brand has been owned by Tata Motors, with the last produced model being the Daimler Super 8 – a huge V8 that seems a little out of sync with today’s motoring. All the same the brand is still listed as ‘Active’ even if it is in a state marked ‘non-trading’ at this time. There coud well be lots more to come from Daimler in the future.
