Aston Martin Lagonda Series 4 (1990)
Vehicle descriptionVery last off production line 18 May 1990.Traditionally, Aston Martin had produced 2+2 sports cars, but the Lagonda was a four-door saloon with a brand new V8 engine. The car was designed by William Towns in an extreme interpretation of the classic 1970s "folded paper" style. It was as unconventional a design then as it is now. The Lagonda was the first production car in the world to use computer management and a digital instrument panel, although the computers in many of the original cars are failure-prone. The development cost for the electronics alone on the Lagonda came to four times as much as the budget for the whole car. The second series used cathode ray tubes for the instrumentation, which proved even less reliable than the original model's LED display.
