THE ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA

Aston Martin's periodic revival of the Lagonda name saw it applied to a stretched, four-door AM V8 in the mid-1970s, a mere handful of which was constructed. When the concept re-emerged, it was the sensation of the 1976 London Motor Show. Clothed in striking 'razor edge' bodywork by William Towns, the new Lagonda saloon used the same long-wheelbase V8 chassis as its immediate predecessor, while breaking new ground in terms of electronic instrumentation and switchgear. Problems with the latter would delay production until April 1978, by which time a less radical design had been adopted. The interior though, was every bit as luxurious as the exterior was futuristic, featuring selected Connolly hides, Wilton carpeting and walnut veneer, all hand-finished by skilled craftsmen in the Aston Martin tradition. Production got into its stride towards the end of 1978, with one car per week being completed at the Newport Pagnell factory.

The Lagonda was face-lifted in 1987 as the Series 4, acquiring a slightly softer, less hard-edged look and continued in production until May 1990 by which time a total of 645 had been built, including 98 Series 4 models, 50 of which were left hand drive. Even today, almost 30 years after its sensational debut, there are few cars that can match the visual presence of the Aston Martin Lagonda.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

From the final series of production and last year the model was imported to North America, this Lagonda was completed on June 16, 1989 and bought new by San Diego publishing magnate David C. Copley, a contemporary art collector and car enthusiast, through Gregg Motors in Beverly Hills. Finished in Windsor Red Metallic over Magnolia hides with burgundy piping, the regal sedan was delivered on August 4th, 1989 in La Jolla, California. Regularly serviced, Mr. Copley actively enjoyed his Lagonda, regularly servicing it at marque specialists and accumulating 29,000 miles by 1999.

With a garage full of other exciting cars, the Lagonda was more sparingly used in the ensuing decade with only 3,000 miles added between 1999 and 2012. Records indicate that while usage was curtailed, service was not with regular maintenance performed. Upon Mr. Copley's passing in 2012, the car was sold to the Midwest before being acquired by the present owner in 2014.

Still in beautiful condition, it shows fewer than 36,000 original miles on the clock. Religious upkeep has kept this example of these notoriously complicated cars in top shape. Understood to be a lovely driving machine, the original digital dash is reported to work well and the air conditioning is said to blow cold. More recently, the car has been fitted with a modern stereo and Bluetooth connectivity.

Having lived virtually its entire life in the exceptionally car-friendly Southern California climate and the recipient of top dollar service, this Lagonda is surely one of the finest examples one can acquire. Complete with its service records from new, copies of build records from Aston Martin, and a clean CarFax documenting its comfortable existence and sparing use, this final-series Lagonda is ready to motor into its fourth owner's garage.
