Description: 1981 Aston Martin Lagonda Série 1
No reserve

Carte grise française
Châssis n° LOOL13083
Moteur n° V/580/3083

- Bel état d''origine, vendue neuve en France
- La plus puissante des 4 séries, matching number
- Encore très abordable, un vrai " collector "
- Sans réserve

La très ancienne marque britannique Lagonda, victorieuse des 24 h du Mans 1935 a été achetée en même temps que la marque Aston Martin en 1947 par l''industriel David Brown. L''Aston Martin Lagonda apparaît sans aucun doute comme l''une des productions les plus excentriques de Newport Pagnell. Dès le milieu des années 60, une berline 4 portes est mise en chantier, elle ne débouchera que sur un prototype en 1969 avant que le projet soit abandonné. En 1974 une série de Lagonda 4 portes sera bien lancée mais seul cinq exemplaires seront produits. En 1975, alors que la marque vient de déposer le bilan, on laisse carte blanche à William Towns pour développer un projet avant-gardiste et moderniser l''image de la marque. L''Aston Martin Lagonda aux lignes cunéiformes et futuristes sera présentée en 1976 avant d''être produite en 1978. La voiture à la fois longue (5,25m) et basse (1,30m) est une vitrine technologique pour la marque.
Face aux problèmes de mises au point rencontrés sur la 1ère série, la 2ème série apparût à partir de 1984, sera fiabilisée et le système d''électronique embarqué revu. Le puissant V8 de 5,3L de 320 chevaux accouplé à une boite automatique 3 rapports Torqueflite de marque Chrysler est capable de propulser cette berline imposante mais racée à plus de 230 km/h.
La voiture de la vente a été vendue neuve à Monaco par British Motors dans cette élégante combinaison de couleurs, gris Blenheim, cuir bleu marine et appartient aujourd''hui à un collaborateur de la maison de vente. Elle est équipée de son tableau de bord à LED toujours un peu capricieux mais elle est la représentante du premier jet, car souvent la 1ère série d''un modèle est celle qui obtient la meilleure cote auprès des vrais amateurs de la marque car elle est souvent plus racée, plus puissante et propose des solutions technologiques plus audacieuses. 645 exemplaires tous modèles confondus ont été réalisés entre 1974 et 1990.





French title
Chassis n° LOOL13083
Engine n° v/580/3083

- Very good original condition, sold new in France
- The most powerful of all series, matching number
- Still very affordable, a true collector
- No reserve

The Aston Martin Lagonda is without a doubt one of the most eccentric cars ever made by Newport Pagnell. From the mid-1960s, a 4-door saloon was under construction, but it only made it to the prototype stage in 1969 just before the project was shelved. In 1974, a Series 4 four-door Lagonda was launched but only 7 models were ever built.
In 1975, when the brand had just filed a petition for bankruptcy, William Towns was given carte blanche to develop an avant-garde project and modernize the brand''s image. The Aston Martin Lagonda, with edgy and futuristic lines, was unveiled in 1976 and brought to market in 1978. The car, which is both long (5.25m) and low (1.30m), was a technological showcase for the brand.
Faced with development problems with the Series 1, the Series 2 model, which was released from 1984, was made more reliable and the onboard computer was revised. The powerful 5.3L V8 offering 300 hp coupled with a 3-speed Torqueflite automatic gearbox made by Chrysler was able to propel this gigantic but elegant saloon to more than 230 km/h.

This Lagonda was sold new in Monaco by British Motors in this colour combination, Bleinheim silver, dark blue leather. It belongs today to an associate of the auction house. It is fitted with the typical LED instruments dashboard from the early series. Usua
