1987 Aston Martin Lagonda ​​Station Wagon

There are times when I have nothing to say. This is one of those times. This car speaks for itself. If you care about my thoughts on the Lagonda, you can find a post from 2010 here.

The description of this car appears in a Classic Driver ad. You can find it there, but I'll also post some of it below...

" In 1996 the project LAGONDA ​​SHOOTING BRAKE was started. The LAGONDA ​​is predestined for an exclusive combination. On behalf of the customer, the design of Beat Roos and the Carrosseie artist Rudolf Hess was converted into its present form. In 1999, the car was handed over to the customer after about 4,000 conversion hours. Base vehicle is a LAGONDA ​​Ser.III."

I know the Lagonda can be polarizing. It's designed to be. There was nothing demure about it and it was designed for clients with similiar character. In a way, it's just a brash, squished, stretched Volvo 740, really. Thus, I'm INSANE for the wagon/estate iteration. Everyone who loves a Volvo loves a Volvo wagon more. Lagonda wagon is just more of a great thing.
