Anybody remember the Aston Martin Lagonda?

Bask in the Seventies Lagonda’s angular excellence

We think it’s safe to say the new Lagonda will be nothing like the old one. Not one bit. 

The Lagonda ‘Series 2’ arrived in 1976, complete with wedge-tastic styling that looked like no car anyone had ever seen before, and no car seen since. Early models had equally astounding interiors, with a cutting-edge digital display and touch-sensitive buttons, but these were abandoned in 1980 because they simply did not work. Like, not even a little bit.

Still pop-up headlights mean all is very much forgiven.

Love it or loathe it? There is no middle ground with this thing.

This interior belongs to a later car, where the touch buttons were wisely replaced by actual buttons. Still didn't work, though.
