Lagonda - Lagonda V12

The new V12 Lagonda, with 4.5 litre engine capacity was introduced in 1937, and was the work of WO Bentley. The chassis of the V12 Lagonda was also new (in 11 feet , or longer 11 feet 6 inches) with independent front suspension. Rolls Royce had previously taken Lagonda to court and successfully sued them for advertising that their earlier Lagonda model had been designed by WO Bentley. I wonder if Lagondas decision to build a V12 had anything to do with this, bearing in mind Rolls Royce had made their V12 in 1935 for the Phantom 3. The Lagonda V12 was a car that could reach 100mph even in saloon form. The V12 came in 2 chassis lengths, the shorter was 11 feet long for the Rapide, with the other length 11 feet 6 inch wheelbase.
