Double El Camino? 1981 Daimler Double Six

From 1972 through 1997, you could get a tarted up Jaguar XJ6 sold as a Daimler and either a simple Sovereign name for the inline-6 or the lofty Double-Six name for the V12. It is a strange car to find out in the wild, but not quite as strange as this 6-wheeled Purple Thunder El Camino customized version. Find this 1981 Daimler Double Six offered for €10,500 ($11,198 USD) via catawiki in The Netherlands. Tip from ME.
