A 1936 Lagonda LG45R Racer has sold for £1.57 million at this year's Goodwood Revival.
While Goodwood is perhaps best known for motorsport and horseracing, the Bonhams Auction is a staple of the Goodwood Revival weekend. There were many pricey purchases made this year, with the Lagonda topping them all, portsmouth.co.uk reports.
The two-seater racer has a particularly impressive history. Completed in 1936 for Lagonda specialists Arthur Fox and Bob Nicholl, the road-registered 'EPE 97' was driven in the 1936 RAC Tourist Trophy race, as well as Le Mans and the British Racing Driver's Club 500-miles classic.
The classic car was known to average 113.02 miles per hour, without front brakes, pistonheads.com notes.
Other big buys over the weekend included a 1991 Ferrari F40, which sold for a whopping £634,300. A 1993 964 RSR racer went for a cool £449,500, while a 1974 911 SC Carrera was snapped up for £135,900.
At these prices, it's difficult to determine which car sales could be considered 'bargains'. However, a strong case could be made for the 1989 Lister Jaguar XJ-S Le Mans that sold for £57,500, and a 2001 Ferrari 360 F1 Coupe that was picked up for £49,450.
James Knight, Bonhams' motoring director, said: "What a weekend - beautiful weather, fantastic cars, and hours of exciting bidding."
