1974-1976 ASTON MARTIN Lagonda


Overview

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.
