1931 Lagonda 2-Litre Supercharged Low Chassis Tourer For Sale

Vintage and prestige are proud to offer this 1931 Lagonda 2-Litre Supercharged Low Chassis Tourer For Sale.



Registration: PL 5560

Chassis no: OH9795

Engine no: 1541

Type: 2B . T2

Having established its reputation by winning the Moscow - St Petersburg Reliability Trial of 1910 with a 30hp six, Lagonda concentrated mainly on the production of light cars before reverting to sporting and luxury models in the mid-1920s with the introduction of the 14/60. The latter abandoned the firm's traditional in-unit gearbox in favour of a midships-mounted transmission, but of greater technical interest was the engine.

Designed by Arthur Davidson, the 2-litre 'four' featured twin camshafts, mounted high in the block, operating inclined valves in hemispherical combustion chambers. Power output of this advanced design was a highly respectable 60bhp.

For the 1929 season, a 'low chassis' Speed Model was introduced, featuring revisions to the frame's front end and a higher-compression engine fitted with twin carburettors. The Speed Model had resulted from the factory's Le Mans effort of 1928, when the 2-Litre driven by Andre D'Erlanger and Douglas Hawkes had finished 11th overall in the 24-Hour endurance classic.

A classic example of racing improving the breed, the 'low chassis' 2-litre possessed markedly superior handling characteristics courtesy of its lower centre of gravity.


For all its virtues, Davidson's engine was limited by its tortuous induction tracts and in 1930 a supercharged version was introduced to overcome this deficiency.

The 'blower' was mounted vertically in front of the engine, which was fitted with a stronger crankshaft, while a 3-litre rear axle beefed up the transmission. A Powerplus supercharger was specified at first, but most 'blown' 2-litres came with a Cozette. Thus equipped, a 'low chassis' 2-litre was capable of up to 90mph.

PL 5560 is in our showroom ready for viewing and offered in excellent all matching numbers condition. Mechanically the engine is a work of art, and after a fastidious restoration just by listening you can tell that the quality of craftsmanship has been to the highest of levels.

Appearance wise the engine bay is a clean as the body and interior. Inside she is trimmed in maroon leather which beautifully contrasts the black exterior. The rear seats are latched at the top which conceals a full array of side screens allowing for wet weather motoring without a soaked right arm and disgruntled passengers.

A VSCC certificate is also provided showing that this model has not been modified in any way other than practical hazard lights allowing this to pass the German TUV test.
