    Dieser legendäre Klassiker verfügt über einen kraftvollen V12 Benzinmotor mit 4-Gang Schaltgetriebe, Blattfederung und hydraulischer Trommelbremse.

    Damals konnten zwei V12 bei dem legendären Rennen von Le Mans den 3. und 4. Platz belegen ( In der 1. und 2. Kategorie).



    Damals schon ein Traumwagen ist der Lagonda Drophead heute wohl einer der begehrtesten britischen Grand Tourer seiner Zeit, gerade mit seiner wunderschönen stromlienien förmigen Coupé-Karosserie.

    Laut dem Lagonda Club of Great Britan wurde das hier angebotene Fahrzeug an James Scott erstausgelifert - die hintere Stoßstange wurde übrigens optional ausgewählt und ausgestattet.



    Der Lagonda blieb bis 1964 in Großbritannien und wurde dann nach Chicago, Illinois exportiert. 1987 kehrte der Wagen nach Großbritannien zurück und wurde dann nach Schweden geliefert. Dort befand sich der Lagonda in einer kleinen privaten Sammlung wo auch einige W.O. Bentleys beheimatet waren.

    Später wurde der Wagen von grund auf bei Rhodins Automobil Service in Schweden mit einem Arbeitsaufwand von 6.000 Stunden restauriert und fand seine Fertigstellung 2008.



    Seit der Restauration wurde der Wagen in einer beheizten Garage aufbewahrt.

    Heute präsentiert sich der Lagonda V12 Drophead in einem hervorragendem Gesamtzustand.

    Long-term former American and Swedish ownership

    Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic



    Rare is the opportunity for an engineer to express all of his talents with few limitations, but W.O. Bentley was given the chance to do just that when he arrived at British automaker Lagonda in the late 1930s. He put together a V-12 that was composed of Cromidium, Dralumin, steel, aluminium, and phosphor-bronze, and every single component was tested so that it would perform flawlessly under any operating condition. It sat on a chassis that had independent front suspension and four-wheel hydraulic brakes, which greatly improved handling and stopping power.



    A Lagonda V-12 with a closed body once covered a distance of 101.5 miles in one hour, which is an impressive figure for the time, and it is even more impressive when one considers that they had to stop and change a flat tyre midway. Two special-bodied V-12s finished 3rd and 4th overall (1st and 2nd in class) at Le Mans. The performance of the Lagonda V-12 astonished the world, and today, it is arguably the most desirable British grand tourer of its era, especially those in the factory?s beautiful, streamlined drophead coupé bodywork.



    According to the Lagonda Club of Great Britain, the V-12 Drophead Coupé offered here was delivered new to James Scott and Son, of Dundee. It was finished in Gunmetal and fitted with an optional rear bumper. The Lagonda remained in the UK until 1964, at which point it was exported to Chicago, Illinois. By 1976, the V-12 had made its way to the western U.S., under the tenure of Worth Simpson of Craig, Colorado. It returned to the UK sometime thereafter, and in 1987, it was acquired by its current owner?s father?for the sum of £18,000?from the former firm of Porters of London. The Lagonda was destined for Sweden with its new custodian, and there it would remain until most recently.



    Under its long-term family ownership, the Lagonda was part of a small collection of vintage cars, which included several W.O. Bentleys. The car remained as-acquired for some years, until the owner undertook a restoration with Renoverad hos Rohdins Automobil Service in Sweden, which took some 6,000 hours to complete and was finished in 2008. Since completion, the car has been seldom used but continuously registered and ...
