Aston Martin Lagonda Series 4 1989
Vehicle descriptionThe Lagonda was the first production car in the world to use computer management, a digital instrument panel, and second series cathode ray tubes for the instrumentation. It combined striking styling with an opulent, 'members club' leather interior, and with its state-of-the-art dashboard was a veritable spaceship. Coupled to a Chrysler 3-speed "TorqueFlite" automatic transmission, its quad-cam carbureted V8 could provide massive linear thrust when required. The later Series 3 and all Series 4 models were fuel injected. William Towns returned to AML briefly to give the Lagonda a 'makeover' in order to get just a few more sales out of the old girl before she was honourably retired, and the resulting Series 4 facelift was revealed in 1987. The lines were softened, the pop-up headlights were ditched, six fixed headlamps replaced the driving lamps, and the waist level trim was lost, but mostly, the sharp angularity had gone. 106 Series 4 cars were built before production ended in 1990 with our Lagonda being the 11th of only 34 that were right-hand drive.
