Quality

The car is made with a cabriolet aluminum body and ‘Rapide’ fenders. The body was designed and fabricated by Frank Feeley, the engine being referred to by many as Bentley’s masterpiece. The car was one of the last 189 built Lagonda V12’s after the outbreak of World War II. This particular V12 - 4.5 litre engine in this car was supplied to the same specification as the V12 Le Mans race cars, which came in third and fourth place in the 1939 Le Mans 24h race. Like these Le Mans racing cars, this car is fitted with a four SU D4L carburettors, a special inlet manifold, special camshafts and valves and an increased 8.5:1 compression ratio compared to the 7:1 standard. Sufficient ventilation in the bonnet ensures adequate ventilation of the engine compartment. Just like Le Mans race cars, the car has the same type of improved hydraulic drum brakes.
