1976 Aston-Martin Lagonda
The Aston-Martin Lagonda had a long, angular body with sharp lines and a low, wide grille. The interior had a dashboard filled with digital displays and modern amenities such as air conditioning and power windows. A V8 engine powered the Lagonda and put out up to 280 horsepower, which was enough for solid performance on the road (via Hagerty).
However, the car also didn’t quite live up to the usual high standards of Aston-Martin in terms of design. The Lagonda was a popular car among the wealthy and powerful, and it represented the height of British automotive luxury in the mid-’70s as a result. However, it was also a complex and expensive car to maintain, which therefore limited its commercial success.
