Under W.O. Bentley Lagonda developed a 4.5 liter V12 for a new luxury class. The new Lagonda V12 competed with Rolls Royce and Daimler. In addition to the factory body, there were also special bodies for which Lagonda supplied the chassis and engines. In 1939 two Lagonda V12 competed in the Le Mans 24 hour race. With the help of W.O. Bentley could be built a competitive car in a matter of months. The engine had a higher compression and thanks to four SU carburetors it now had 200 hp. The chassis was made easier by drilling and thanks to the aluminum body the car weighed only about 1350 KG. Result: 3rd and 4th place.

1938 the Lagonda V12 with chassis no. 16034 was first registered as a saloon. At the beginning of the 2000s it got the structure in the Le Mans Specification by the specialist LMB Racing from Belgium. The Lagonda has a German historic license and a new technical control.
