Between 1974 and 1990 the luxury four-door saloon Aston Martin Lagonda was built, with a total of 645 produced.
Aston Martin was facing financial pressure in the mid 70s and needed something to bring in some much-needed funds, luckily Aston Martin, who predominately focused on 2+2 sports cars, introduced the 4 door Lagonda.
This was a turning point for Aston Martin, which drew hundreds of deposits from potential customers helping Aston Martin’s cash reserves.
The Series 1 model (1974-1975) is a long-wheelbase, four door version of the Aston Martin V8, designed by William Town in an extreme interpretation of classic 1970s.
Car enthusiasts are torn between the car’s aesthetic value. The Lagonda combined striking styling with opulent leather interior, and the state-of-the-art instrumentation.
