A rare 1939 Lagonda LG6 Saloon (DAK 311) is one of just 50 known surviving LG6 examples in the world.
The first Lagonda LG6 was displayed at the 1937 London Motor Show and, according to the press of the day, was one of the event's 'show stoppers’. Only 85 LG6s were ever produced. The model’s engine and chassis were developed by W.O. Bentley, who joined Lagonda after Bentley was taken over by Rolls-Royce. The LG6 was conceived in conjunction with the ground breaking V12 and most LG6 chassis wore factory coachwork by in-house stylist Frank Feeley.
DAK 311, a factory-bodied short chassis sports saloon, underwent extensive restoration in the early 2000s and has a recorded mileage of 36,000 which is believed but not warranted to be genuine. The Lagonda comes with a working Jackall system and rear luggage rack as well as its original inspection lamp. aThe coachwork was envisioned by designer Frank Feeley and built at the Lagonda factory.
