Built between 1976 and 1989, only 645 lagondas were produced!

The Lagonda was the worlds first production car to use computer management and a digital instrument display.

Powered by Aston Martins awesome 5430cc Quad Cam V8 with 4 downdraft carburettors, with 280hp. Top speed was 143mph, with 0-60 in 8.8 seconds.

At least 2 Lagondas were upgraded to a 7 Litre version which produced 440-480hp on pump fuel!

The Lagonda retailed at £49,933 in 1980, significantly more than a Ferrari 400 or Maserati Kyalami but less than a Rolls-Royce Corniche.

The Lagonda weighed over 2,000 kg !

  • Very very cool post. I’ve always liked this car. Very very 80’s dash instruments tho lol. The look of the dash hasn’t aged well at all lol. Looks like a old Panasonic VHS sorta setup lol. But still an ultimately cool car in my books. Good enough for them to have a sorta “remake” a couple years ago. Lagonda taraf? And that looks fantastic. Never knew about the 7litre model tho!!! Cool post Dave. Very lucky man to see one. A++
