Those of you who have been following the progress of the Lagonda in ‘Classic and Sportscar’ may be interested to know that the engine in the Rapide has now been re-installed after a rebuild at Mike Connor’s workshop and once again sounds terrific. With the engine now back in, the new paintwork is being applied and we are really looking forward to seeing the finished product. Only 55 of these cars were ever made and if the results of Bonham’s recent Aston Martin centenary sale are anything to go by they are now attracting serious money.
