Clearly you have never piloted a PV through a car park....
The PV would make the QE2 quite a sharp lady.

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

Re: W109 6.3 vs Daimler Double Six S1

The Jaguar/Daimler V12 is extraordinarily smooth and revs very easily. It does not have the low-down torque of the 6.9 but it does sing through the revs; the two different motors reflect totally...

What damned fine cars; both of them. I would have either or both as they do represent truly fine human engineering.
