Lagonda’s are rare cars with a total of just 643 examples being built over 12 years. With perhaps 80 examples remaining in the UK, this photograph of both a series 4 and an early series 2 together is a great rarity. The basic lines are the same although the latter car has considerably more weight in the styling.
With production virtually stable at one car a week, production lasted for just 105 examples, ending in January 1990, with a global recession looming limiting demand for hyper expensive sports saloons.
The Lagonda marque remained virtually dormant for 25 years. There were a small number of coach built specials and concepts such as the AML Works service made Virage based 4 and 5 door specials, and the exceptionally beautiful Ghia designed Lagonda Vignale concept car. The Gaydon era Lagondas had something of a false start with the Concept LUV in 2009 until AML announced the Lagonda Taraf, a car that owes its styling to the 1980’s wedge.
