Arguably one of the finest armored fighting vehicles built in Britain during the war, the Dingo was a small two-man armored car. It was well protected for its size with 30 mm of armor at the front. The 2.5 liter 55 hp engine is located at the rear of the vehicle.

The Dingo was first used by the British Expeditionary Force (1st Armored Division and 4th Royal Northumberland Fusiliers) during the Battle of France. It turned out to be so successful that no replacement was sought until 1952 with the production of the Daimler Ferret. Principal users were reconnaissance units consisting of two Daimler Armored Cars and two Daimler Dingoes. The vehicle was highly sought-after with damaged Dingoes often being recovered from vehicle dumps and reconditioned for use as private runabouts.

By 1968, most Dingoes had been withdrawn from British service. Many were also purchased from Canada by the Union Defense Force after World War II, though few South African examples have survived to present day. In mid-1970s the Dingo was still being used by Cyprus, Portugal and Sri Lanka. Some may have been in reserve store with other minor nations. Surviving vehicles are now popular among historical reenactors with reconditioned Dingoes commanding a good price.
