If I'm not mistaken, Jaguars only were badged as XJ6. And correct name for this one should be Daimler Vanden Plas. Am I right?
 
#3
Daimlers of III series have different names: Daimler Sovereign, Daimler Double Six, Daimler 4,2 Vanden Plas, Daimler DD6 Vanden Plas, Daimler 4,2 Sovereign and Daimler V12 Sovereign.

I have no idea who's right, although maybe they were double-badged in some places/time?
I've seen many for sale in Germany named Daimler Jaguar.
