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 were 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. It 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

Completed at the Newport Pagnell Aston Martin Lagonda factory in August of 1983, this highly technical Sports Sedan was most likely delivered new to the US market. The car is known to have been in Nevada during the 1990s and 2000s, before relocating to the East Coast where it remained in singular ownership until recently. Freshly serviced, this Lagonda shows beautifully throughout, with many of its original finishes intact. The car is accompanied by copies of the factory build sheets and owner's manuals, and features fitted trunk luggage.
