Aston Martin Lagonda Series 2

(V540 & V580, 1978 - 1986)

The Aston Martin Lagonda was THE sensation of the 1976 Motor Show but it was far from production ready. As well as the sensational coachwork, the other outstanding feature was the fully digital instrumentation which took time and a great deal of money to get to function correctly. Production didn't really begin until 1978  and even during the first two years of production, only 16 cars were completed.

The AMOC has a way of categorising the products of AML to prevent confusion between models. The earlier Lagonda V8 is known as the series 1 – the wedge shaped Lagondas are known as the series 2, 3 and 4, based on engine spec and body style. The factory has tended to differentiate Lagonda’s by instrument type. The series 2 to 4 cars are also erroneously referred to as the ‘Towns’ Lagonda – which is true, but the series 1 car was designed by William Towns. When Towns designed the 4 door wedge shaped Lagonda, he also worked on a series of two door versions which never saw the light of day – I’ve been fortunate enough to see the original drawings which are terribly interesting. Interestingly that 10 years later, AML did build a 2 door Lagonda which was in fact a prototype for the Virage. Sadly I have never seen the car.
