The Lagonda is one of Aston Martin's weirder cars. A distinctive, polarizing wedge shape, squared-off rear end, and slim headlights mark it as a cult classic within collector circles. Aston didn't build too many of them, so it's always a treat when one comes up for sale. This one is a super-rare Series III model, and . You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
According to the seller's description, this Lagonda has spent much of its life stored in the owner's hangar in Oregon as a part of a collection, un-driven. It's painted in a stunning dark Concord Blue, and features the later-design interior with a two-spoke steering wheel and button-filled dash. It has just 20,891 miles on the clock, and looks to be in great condition. The seller says all of the electronics—including the wildly complex digital gauge cluster—are in good working order. This Lagonda is a 1986 Series III car, one of just 75 examples built. It features a fuel-injected V8, but keeps the Series II pre-facelift styling.
As you'd expect with any old, strange, rare Aston Martin, prices aren't cheap. Hagerty currently values a 1986 Series III Lagonda like this one to be worth upwards of $90,000. with a current high bid of $27,100 and reserve not met, with four days remaining left to bid. Though the photos aren't the best quality, we have a feeling this car will still go for a bunch of money. The cool factor combined with the low mileage and stellar mechanical condition make this one of the better Lagonda's I've seen for sale in awhile.
