1974-1976 ASTON MARTIN Lagonda specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
In 1974, the elegant William Towns styled DBS was given 4 doors
and a slightly longer wheelbase, creating the Aston Martin Lagonda.
Another difference was the far-from-attractive Lagonda style grille.
This was the first car since the 1961 Rapide to wear the Lagonda
badge, but it was not a success. This can be blamed on the 1974
oil crisis, which seriously limited the appeal of any V8 powered
super saloon, let alone one that would rarely see MPG in the double
figures. During the two years of production, only seven were sold.
