1955 Lagonda 3litre drophead coupe


Far rarer than a Bentley or a Rolls Royce; the Lagonda is the pinnacle of 1950s luxurious motoring.

It was produced by Aston Martin Lagonda from 1953 to 1958. In 1955 the engine displacement was increased from 2.6 liters to 3 liters and a floor mounted gear stick was added. This is how we know that this magnificent vehicle is one of the only 55 convertible drophead Lagonda cars produced. This makes it one of the rarest cars ever made.

Our Lagonda is resplendent in light silver over its original dark red hide and has had two long-term owners. The chassis and engine were designed by W O Bentley. It has advanced features such as inboard rear brakes and a cruciform chassis. The engine powered Aston Martin cars to competition success. The Lagonda is in magnificent condition. It is totally outstanding in every possible way. The interior is luxurious and sumptuous with its original leather in exceptional condition with spectacular patina. The walnut dash and trimmings are as new. An immensely powerful car for the era this car easily keeps up with modern traffic and will exceed 100mph with absolute ease.

Only made until 1957; there were just 55 convertible Lagonda’s manufactured with less than 20 known to survive. What an incredible opportunity to own one of the most prestigious motor vehicles ever produced. This has to be one the smartest classic convertibles to ever come to market, it is registered in South Africa and in the UK and without a doubt this is truly an opportunity to purchase one of the world’s greatest motoring cars . . . Which also has to be a total one off on our shores . . .

A never to be repeated opportunity, Creative Rides are proudly offering this unique motor vehicle at R1 995 000 delivery worldwide included.

Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
