1977-1990 ASTON MARTIN Lagonda


Overview

Even Aston Martin wasn’t immune to the craziness of the 1970s: behold the strangely glorious Lagonda, launched in 1977. Outside, the car – on a stretched V8 chassis – was an uncompromising razor-edged wedge shape by William Towns, inside it was a technological tour de force of touch-sensitive switches, digital displays and futuristic gizmos. These proved its Achilles’ heel, for the Lagonda soon became known for its unreliability. Simplification followed... allowing the wedge to stay in production until 1990. Utterly mad, yet endearingly British.
