The Aston Martin Lagonda was a luxury four-door saloon built by Aston Martin between 1976 and 1989. A total of 645 examples were produced at an average selling price of£150,000.  It was the first production car in the world to use computer management and a digital instrument panel. Powered by a 5.3 L 5,340 cc (326 cu in) DOHC V8, producing 280 bhp (209 kW; 284 PS). Top speed: 143 mph (230 km/h) and acceleration to 60 mph in 8.8 seconds.

Series 1 cars are long-wheelbased, four-door version of the Aston Martin V8 produced between 1974–75.

Aston Martin Lagonda Series 4 (1987–1990)

Series 4 Lagondas received a significant exterior facelift by the car's original designer William Towns. The car's sharp edges rounded off and the pop-up headlights eliminated, with a new arrangement of triple headlights each side of the grille being the most obvious alteration, along with the removal of the side swage line (or character line) and the introduction of 16-inch wheels. With production of around one car per week, 105 Series 4 Lagondas were manufactured. (wikipedia)
