Open/Close Menu A website, archive and interactive space celebrating one of Britain's most innovative engineers and inventors, Frederick Lanchester

It was a busy weekend at the Classic Car & Restoration Show at the NEC, with Chris Clark’s spectacular 1926 Lanchester 40 h.p. stealing the show in many people’s eyes.

It’s featured in this week’s ‘Classic Car Weekly‘ and the beautiful lines of the fashionable boat-tail car certainly attracted hundreds of visitors wanting to know more about the car, Lanchester and his legacy.

Among them was Fifth Gear and Fully Charged presenter Jonny Smith, who stopped by and revealed he’d once found a Lanchester at the back of a scrapyard and came within a whisker of buying it!

 

Take a look at the gallery below to see the ash and teak masterpiece being displayed for the very first time.
