Footnotes

  • The original Daimler Green Goddess debuted as a show car at the 1948 Earl's Court Motor Show in London and was the most expensive car on display. The result of a joint collaboration between Sir Bernard Docker, chairman at the time of Daimler's parent company, BSA, and designers at Daimler, the "Green Goddess" appellation came from the car's special jade green paintwork. Even though the six following replicas of this majestic Daimler were finished in varying colors, the "Green Goddess" designation is applied to any DE-36 bodied in the original show car's distinctive style.
