Lagonda had announced their 1937 programme in September so it was a bombshell when on the eve of the Motor Show.
The LG6 along with the V12 had a new cross-braced chassis which considerably reduced chassis flexing with front independent suspension. This allowed the engines to be lowered into the space previously occupied by the front axle which allowed lower sleeker bodies. The LG6 had a slightly longer chassis than the V12 but it continued with the trusty Meadows engine now as the Sanction 4 engine ( 6.68:1 compression ratio, twin vertex mags with about 130 bhp). It appealed to the lovers of the low-revving but torque-ey six cylinder engine.
The braking system was changed to hydraulic from the Girling system of the LG45 and M45 Rapides.
