1937 Lagonda LG45 Rapide Tourer

The LG45 Rapide featured much of the engineering found on the Lagonda competition cars which had been so successful at Le Mans, but was fitted with a much more stylish and flamboyant touring body designed by Frank Feeley. Later in his career, Feeley was responsible for the design of the Aston Martin DB3S, possibly the prettiest sports racing car of its time. Feeley’s Rapide design incorporated four seats, cutaway doors, large swooping front fenders and stylish external chrome exhausts, everything the upper classes required in the late 1930’s.
