Aston martin Lagonda 1985--RARE--and crazy In 1976 flared, bellbottom trousers and flowered shirts were in vogue. The Concorde started supersonic service between Europe and the US. ABBA climbed the pop charts. It is difficult to identify other automobiles that so effected and affected the style of their day as the Lagonda. Long and shingle-shaped with a low flat hood, shrunken roof and impossibly luxuriously and futuristically equipped interior, it was the ultimate 4-door saloon. It was like nothing else before or since. Built in the Aston Martin tradition of bespoke construction, each of its four cam V-8 engines was signed by the Newport Pagnell craftsman who built it. The dashboard forecast Star Wars, a panoply of touch switches and nixie tube displays with voice alerts in suave British tones. Swathed in fine leather and rich wood, it recalled Thirties coachwork with a retracting sunroof ... over the rear seats, not the driver. The four-cam 5,340cc Aston Martin V-8 cranked out over 300 brake horsepower and gave the sleek William Towns designed Lagonda saloon 140+mph performance. Built from 1974-1990 they cost $15,000 in 1985, explaining why production reached only 645 in fifteen years.

Mercedes increases stake in Aston Martin

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 18:01:00 EST

As part of an increasingly close partnership, Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler is reportedly preparing to increase its stake in Aston Martin by another one percent, bringing the German automaker's shares in the British company up to five percent.
The rapprochement between the two has been in the works for years now, and is finally beginning to take form. Mercedes-AMG is in the midst of developing a new engine with and for Aston Martin in an apparently similar arrangement to that which it has with Pagani. But that's not the extent of it.
Daimler will also furnish Aston Martin with electrical systems and other components, said to lead up to the eventual sharing of platforms: one to underpin future GTs and another to serve as the basis for a long-mooted Aston Martin crossover, now said to be back on the table and slated to launch in 2017. The prospect of using the partnership to reinvigorate both the Lagonda and Maybach luxury brands, however, has since been taken off the table, with both parties continuing those projects independently.

Bentley went to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance as the main sponsor and showed off six of its best among the gathering of "60 of the finest motor cars in the world," including the 4¼-liter Bentley 'Embiricos' Special built for a Greek shipping magnate and gentleman racer in the 1930s.
Even better, for us at least, is that when Bentley decided to capture the moment it took pictures of most of the metal on the lawn, not just the Bentleys. Thanks to that, we have a high-res gallery that's home to rarities like the Vauxhall 30-98 Type OE Boattail Wensum Tourer, beauties like the Bugatti Type 57S Atalante, long-tail Ford GT40, Maserati Tipo 60 Birdcage, Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato, a sinister Ferrari 250 GTO and the even more sinister Rolls-Royce Phantom Aerodynamic Coupe, among others.

2017 Aston Marin Lagonda could live on Mercedes M-Class platform

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 17:20:00 EST

A few weeks ago, we brought you news from the launch of the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante that the British brand, which is formally known as Aston Martin Lagonda, was still planning on going ahead with a Lagonda-badged crossover. Now comes word that that vehicle could very well be based on a Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
When the first Lagonda Concept debuted at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, it sat on a Mercedes-Benz GL-Class platform, some four years before Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG deal was inked. And with that partnership, which will see Aston Martin gain access to AMG electrics and "bespoke, V8 powertrains," the opportunities for platform sharing are many.
Dr. Ulrich Bez, the boss of Aston Martin, told the UK's AutoCar, "I look at what Porsche is doing with the 911 as its core business and then it is able to do models like the Cayenne based on the Volkswagen Touareg. It is good business." We've said many times that we'll tolerate exotic CUVs and SUVs if it means keeping the beloved core models alive, which has been the case with Porsche. We see no reason Aston Martin wouldn't be able to do the same.
