Lagonda M45 Tourer
The Lagonda M45 is the archetypal 1930s British sports car. Handsome, rugged and fast, this expensive motor car caught the rich sporting fraternity’s imagination. Although only in production for two years, it continues to have a tremendous following, especially after a mildly modified M45 run for the factory by the Fox & Nicholl team won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1935.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2010 at the Battersea Evolution, London.
4½-litre inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed Lagonda gearbox, independent front suspension, live rear axle, four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 120"
