Sales information

 

Lagonda 3 Litre 4.5 low chassis Brooklands special, year 1932. Chassis number 10163, engine number 1912. Colour 'two tone' black/white, black wire wheels, black leather interior. This magnificent Lagonda Brooklands special is based on a 1932 Lagonda 3 Litre low chassis. The automobile was built according to the specifications of the Lagonda factory racing cars as they competed in the Brooklands ' Double Twelve' race in the year 1929. The racing colours of the factory team were black and white. Originally three of these racing cars have been built. Like original this car also features the impressive Meadows 4.5 Litre engine. The chassis and body were restored by the renown English specialist Peter Whenman, he restored this car for himself. Over the last years the car has undergone service, partial overhauls and fine tuning at LMB Racing of Belgium. The car participated in the Premio Nuvolare in Italy. In the scarce documentation on Lagonda racing cars two of the 1929 factory racing cars can be seen on page 43 of the book 'Lagonda 1899-1999' written by Arnold Davey. This is a very impressive piece of machinery...
