The Aston Martin Lagonda has a wedge-shaped design, sharp lines, and an arched windshield. Many poster automobiles with distinctive, comparable outlines were created between the late 1970s and the 1980s. The Lagonda blends in well with the throng, as do vehicles like the Lotus Esprit, Maserati Boomerang, Lancia Stratos, and Lamborghini Countach.
All of the aluminum body panels’ angular lines were meticulously hand-crafted and hand-filed. Between the steel below and the aluminum skin is a layer of linen, and the entire body is hand-rubbed with 23 layers of lacquer (per Car and Driver ). Aston Martin could paint the Lagonda in any color the customer desired, despite the factory only offering 12 paint options. Were pop-up headlights a standard feature on Series 2 Lagondas forgotten to mention? The stylish pop-up headlights were dropped from the fourth-generation Lagonda in favor of three headlamp clusters on each side.
V8 Burly engine A 5.3-liter V8 gas engine with 280 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque is housed beneath the Lagonda’s enormous bonnet. A five-speed manual or automatic transmission were available for the Series 1 Lagonda . A Chrysler TorqueFlite three-speed automatic gearbox is standard on the Series 2, Series 3, and Series 4 Lagondas. The V8 engine of the Series 2 Lagonda uses four Weber two-barrel carburetors, although later editions incorporate contemporary fuel injection.
