American Wilbur Gunn (1859-1920) began his company in the UK in 1906.  He named his firm “Lagonda” after a river running through his home town.  The car company moved upmarket in the 1920’s building fast touring cars with one of their cars winning Le Mans in 1935.  In 1947 David Brown bought the firm creating a new company, Aston Martin Lagonda, which continues today as the world’s only independent luxury car group.
