It looks like it's just an incomplete prototype...

An independent put an engine in it, but it's far from a production car...

No wonder, cause Jaguar owned Daimler, and Daimler Sovereign was just a more luxury copy of the Jag XJ. Daimler is just for higher class of buyers. Corsica seems to be a twin-top Sovereign. Though I don't see a sense in this thing, I'd buy the Jag.

It does look like a Jaguar XJ6 with 2 less doors and no hard top, interesting.

Daimler Motor Company UK was founded in 1896 by F.R. Simms and was the beginn of the british car industry. Simms bought the licens rights from Daimler(Mercedes) Germany to produce Daimler engines in the UK. In 1960 Jaguar bought the company and used the name Daimler for their large ultraluxury sedans till 1992.
The last Daimler build was the Daimler Super Eight, the most famous customer is the Queen. The production of the Super Eight was stoped in 2009 after only 120cars sold in 2008.

only one ever build to celebrate the 100th birthday of Daimler Motor Company in the UK in 1996. The car was brought back into running conditions by the british Jaguar Enthusiast’s Club between 2006 and 2007 after it had sit 10years hidden away in the stocks of Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in Coventry.
