1974 - 1985

Following the purchase of Aston Martin by a group of enthusiastic businessmen in 1975, the decision was taken to introduce a startling new product to show that the company was alive and innovating furiously. Aston Martin took a huge leap into the future and designed the futuristic 'cutting-edge' four-door Lagonda.

As well as its aerodynamic wedge shape, the Lagonda was yet more remarkable for its unique electronic instrumentation and switchgear. The reborn Lagonda was a marvel of technology: the problem was that it was ahead of its time, and took a further two years from launch to eliminate the majority of electronic issues.
