All was not well financially at Lagonda and the receiver was called in
1935, but the company was bought by Alan P. Good, who just outbid
Rolls-Royce. He also persuaded W. O. Bentley to leave Rolls-Royce and
join Lagonda as designer along with many of his racing department staff.
The 4.5-litre range now became the LG45 with lower but heavier bodies
and also available in LG45R Rapide form. The LG45 came in three versions
known as Sanction 1, 2 and 3 each with more Bentley touches to the
engine. In 1938 the LG6, with independent front suspension by torsion
bar and hydraulic brakes, came in.
