Aston Martin Lagonda
Is it an Aston?
The wedge Lagonda has always divided opinion for its outlandish, elongated looks and for, well, being not very Aston like.
So, let’s just call it a Lagonda, after all the words Aston Martin were not on the badge from 1984. We should view this model for what it was: an advanced, ambitious and attention grabbing car which was so successful that the company considered stopping V8 Aston production to focus on the just the Lagonda. The model saved Aston Martin. But it should also be viewed in the context of the period and the design fashions of the 1970s: Saturday Night fever, punk and a fashion for wedge designs in cars. Of its ilk, the Lagonda has stood up well.
