Daimler
DAIMLER LIGHT STRAIGHT 8

Saloon, sports saloon, 4-door cabriolet, various specials.

Daimler's answer to the Derby Bentley, with a rather  similar performance on 100bhp; maybe not quite as fast but pre-selector appeals to the lazier owner. Looks attractive; especially Vanden Plas's later saloons. Against: the five-bearing engine has a fixed head.
