This 1939 Lagonda V12 Drophead Coupe was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Amelia Island, Florida. It is powered by a 4480cc overhead valve V12 engine capable of producing 180 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and Lockheed drum brakes. The elegant body rests atop a 124-inch wheelbase.
There is an independent front suspension which eliminated the solid front axle. This allowed the engine to be placed much lower in the chassis and decrease its center of gravity.
This is a right-hand drive vehicle with seating for four. It is finished in British Racing Green with dark green accent belt moldings. There is a green leather interior and the drop top cloth is black. There are dual spare covered side mounted tires, with one of the cases containing the tool kit and jack. The disc wheels are comprised of polished aluminum.
This car was shown at the 1997 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it was awarded a First in Class. There were 190 examples of the V12 Lagonda's constructed, with this example shown being one of the last.
At auction, the vehicle surpassed the estimated value, selling for $451,000.
