TWO STARS OF THE 2017 SHOW
1936 AUBURN 'BOATTAIL' SPEEDSTER
The 1935–1936 Speedsters were designed by the legendary Gordon Buehrig, and they were audacious even by the standards of their time, as they featured curvaceous bodywork and a straight hood line that shot back from the radiator to a sharply vee’d windshield, down between pontoon fenders, and over gently sloping doors, ultimately descending into a graceful taper at the rear bumper. It was this distinctive rear design, elegantly outlined by chrome and striping, that gave the Speedster its everlasting nickname, which is, simply, “the boattail.”
1961 DAIMLER DART OR SP250 'B'
An unusual departure for a firm more noted for its stately limousines, the SP250 sports car was Daimler’s final fling before its acquisition by Jaguar. Launched in 1959, the SP250 employed a separate ladder-type chassis on which sat controversially styled glassfibre coachwork manufactured by Daimler themselves. Four-wheel disc brakes were an unusual feature at the time but unquestionably the car’s biggest virtue was its magnificent 2.5-litre V8 engine. An outstandingly flexible unit, the smaller of Daimler’s two Edward Turner designed V8s produced 140bhp, an output good enough to propel the SP250 to a top speed of 125mph. The model survived Jaguar’s 1960 take-over, benefiting from its new owner’s attention that resulted in the much-improved ‘B’ version, of which this is one. Introduced in April 1961, the SP250 ‘B’ boasted a stiffer chassis and thicker glassfibre coachwork.
