Same info from Tim, they should have sold it at that price, would have been a new high. Surprised AML did not give a 10% movement on estimate.
Indeed, 310k plus the buyer's premium (plus VAT on the premium) would have meant the buyer paying 350k. So when comparing market values that's the real amount and it's a not inconsiderable sum.

I won't be surprised if the car sells after the auction or through the AML classic showroom at Newport Pagnell or possibly they may hold it for the Bonhams Jamboree in May. Will speak to my contact at NP, see what is happening

Probably one of the best Rapides in the market right now. and will clearly sell at or near price where bidding stopped, the high point for Lagondas post war under DB at the moment.

According to Octane, this car did sell at the auction - and, for 785.500! Sadly (of course), it didn't. :-(

Looking through the latest issue, you have to ask, did this journalist even go to the auction ?

The DBS based 4-door Lagonda was well bought at 400k, one of the original 7 cars. I know where a companion sits, not used much either, and still with original size, not one of the RSW upgraded versions.

One wonders why AML did not retail the cars through Works Service at Newport Pagnell ?

Perhaps offering it at the NP auction might be considered too close to home? I would have thought Amelia Island or Pebble Beach would/should be the most sensible venues.
