LAGONDA 4½-LITRE M45R RAPIDE

Tourer.

Semi-boat tail tourer with concealed hood, no running boards, abbreviated wings - lovely, apart from those Mercedes-like exhaust headers sprouting from the bonnet. High-compression engine's advertised 150bhp aren't there (let's say 125-130) though it certainly goes - 108mph and 0-50 in just over 9 seconds. The most beautiful Lagonda of all time?
