 Designed by William Towns, October 1976 saw Aston Martin reveal a striking new model, a new 4 door Lagonda with innovative solid state digital instrumentation, a futuristic concept at the time. Lagonda created a wave of publicity for the company and the order book filled rapidly, particularly from the Middle East market.

 

With initial production levels at one a week it wasn’t until 1979 that the first car was delivered. In 1982 the Lagonda was finally cleared for sale in the USA. In 1984, a Long Wheelbase Tickford Limousine version was announced with a TV in the front and rear.

 

The Aston Martin Lagonda was updated again in 1987 when William Towns rounded off the edges of the car giving it a fresh new look. Enhancements included a re-designed nose where six smaller lights replace the pop-up headlamps and new 16” alloy wheels.

 

A total of 645 chassis were built before the end of production in 1989. Each car required 2,200 man-hours to build and only about 25 were built per year for the U.S. market.

This 1991 Aston Martin V8 Lagonda series four, is the sixth to last Lagonda to be produced from the Newport Pagnel production line. Having just covered 27,000 miles and a full bare metal repaint to the original Rolls Royce royal Blue, by Aston Martin Works, just months previous. It is the best paint finish we have ever seen on a Lagonda, with all the weather seals being replaced; it is probably one of the best V8 Lagonda’s around.

 

With well-documented Aston Martin Works Service history, the car has been in the current ownership for the past 15 years and has been so well looked after, it wants for nothing. With only 98 series four cars produced, it is the one to own.
