Samenvatting

The British firm of Lagonda, founded in 1899 by an American, Wilbur Gunn, became famous in the 1920s and 1930s for its range of exceptionally handsome and effective sporting cars. The 2 Litre model, first shown in 1925, founded this reputation, using an innovative hemi-head engine with twin high camshafts. This is the first ever book devoted exclusively to these Lagondas. In it the author opens with an exposition of the background to the announcement of the first 2 Litre, the 14/60, in 1925. He goes on to give highly detailed descriptions of all models and variants, covering every aspect of the chassis, running gear, engines and transmissions, and discusses the changes made to specifications and equipment during production. The history of the cars in competition, is studied, as well as the ups and downs of the company’s fortunes during the period. The author also advises on the practicalities of owning any of these models today. Seven outstanding cars have been photographed specially for this book and are featured in some 100 color shots. There are also more than 150 black-and-white photographs from archive sources.
