I believe it's a form of investment, the values of which are much discussed on this forum!

Doh... Okay, what type of Lagonda is it? It's not a registration number (as far as I can tell) and I don't believe there wasn't a Lagonda Type LR 127 so I just wondered... Is it Lagonda Rapide chassis no 127? Tongue

Yes, that's the one, the post war DB one that is. Strange cars to me in that they look odd and unatractive in photos, yet really nice in the metal.

Yes, it's a 1963 car in dark blue from memory. The aesthetic is best not being front head on, from the side they are surprisingly sleek as a result of their length and thinness of the roof pillars. I have one on the road and one SORN'd

It's possible LR127 is not blue but old english pewter. It was Dubonnet when built

I really like the DB Lagonda Rapides. One has to view them as luxury saloons in the vein of Bentleys rather than GT cars like Astons. This one was displayed at Kensington Palace a part of the Aston Martin centenary event in 2013.
