The Lagonda DB 2.6

The first new automobile produced by Lagonda after its purchase by David Brown in 1947 was the 2.6-litre. It was named for the new high-tech straight-6 engine which debuted with the car. The so-called Lagonda Straight-6 engine was designed by Walter Owen Bentley and would propel Lagonda’s new parent company, Aston Martin, to fame.¬† The 2.6-Litre was a larger car than the Aston Martins and was available as either a four-door closed car or from 1949 two-door convertible drophead coup√©, both with four seats.
