    Hi, I am a new member looking for a Rapide.
    LR 113 seems on sale….has anybody any information on that car?
    Thx and regards,

    Hi Dirk, welcome to the forum. Where did you see LR113 for sale? I found an ad here but it’s from 1997. If it’s still in the same condition or better then it sounds quite good – seems to have had major restoration work carried out…

    Edit: This is LR113

    Hi Christian and Dirk, yes that’s LR113, owned by an ex-member of the Lagonda Club. It is also illustrated in Arnold Davey’s Lagonda book (1999). Records show it was restored 1990-1992 and was sold at auction in 1998

    I have recently seen this car – I was quite interested myself. Bodywork is still in quite good condition, but engine seems up for major repair job. Some other parts (e.g. rear shocks) are also in need repairs or some solid maintenance work.
    I will be pleased to tell more if you are interested.
    Regards, Lagondover

    Good morning,

    Can you please let me know me details about the car and price. Is it the car which was advertised in the January Lagonda Club newsletter or another car ?

    If you don’t wish to post these details on the forum, please email me othwerwise.

    Kind regards

    Different car, Simon

    All, Alas! I am told the car has been sold in the meantime 🙁

    Thank you and I have also been told they are two different cars.

    Kind regards and thank you for your replies

    Do you know which LR the other one was and how much it went for?

    I uploaded some short video’s of 113 – made when I was able to take a closer look at the car in March, 2012:

    Very, very nice indeed…

    Why did you let this seemingly gorgeous car slip through your hands, or was it already sold ?

    BTW, I really do think a Rapide looks fabulous on wire wheels…

    Thank you for posting these links, greatly appreciated.

    Someone else had more awareness of its value I am afraid :(. But a man can grow a lot in two months. I now realize that I will probably have to bleed for my ignorance :

    23 May 2012 at 07:59 #49206

    There is no reason to bleed, use a plaster.

    But, seriously, next time you hear of one, buy it, don’t wait for others to jump in.

    Best of luck
