The curvaceous styling of the car was by the gifted Frank Feeley who had been at Lagonda from 1926 and was also responsible for the pre-war LG45 Rapide and many post-was Aston Martins. Described as both graceful and modern, it sadly dated rapidly as more modern full width coachwork became the fashion.
The 2.6 Lagonda sold reasonably well in austerity Britain although it was expensive at £3,420 inclusive of tax, heavy (1543 kg), thirsty and not overly fast, struggling to reach 90 mph. The 4 door saloon version was a little cheaper at £3110.
The car shown here is LAG/48/5, the first 2.6 litre drophead coupe, a factory demonstrator, 1948 London Motor Show car which became the personal transport for Mrs David Brown, the wife of the new company chairman.
