This website will hopefully help to raise awareness throughout the world. It will show Lanchester versatility ranging from the first, all-British motor boat, to the first, all-British, 4-wheel motor car, to the fundamentals of flight, to warfare and strategic planning, to music, to colour photography, to petrol~electric hybrid cars, to architecture, the first ever use of the words 'streamlined' and so much more. Amongst the hundreds of Lanchester inventions and designs for cars are: disc brakes, rack & pinion steering, turbo charging, power steering, 4-wheel drive and even the humble accelerator pedal. There is so much more to astonish the reader. However, this site is still evolving so it may take time to do the Lanchester brothers justice!
Whether or not you are lucky enough to own a Lanchester motor car, or whether you have been inspired elsewhere by the Lanchester brothers' amazing work, the Lanchester Legacy volumes provide a fascinating insight into the hundreds of varied designs and profound inventions, across a whole range of different subjects.
If you should buy a copy of the Lanchester Legacy via www.Lanchesters.com
a personalised dedication could be written especially for you, to make a truly unique present. Just click on the Lanchester Trilogy page for more info. I look forward to hearing from you.
