Auctions and Brokerage
Aston Martin acquired the Lagonda marque in 1947 and continued to use that badge of honor until 1990. The fuel-injected Series 3 variant of the William Towns-designed Lagonda was launched at the New York motor show in 1986, and only 75 were produced.
This Lagonda boasts a single private owner for all of its 33 years and showed approximately 27,000 miles at the time of cataloguing. Purchased new for $176,500 in 1986, this Series 3 was delivered through Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, Connecticut. The recipient of fastidious and consistent maintenance, the car remains in excellent condition throughout, with operational switches and dials. A bare-metal repaint in its original Mercedes-Benz Blue Black (DB 199) remains superb, complemented by the immaculately preserved interior.
Most recently, this Lagonda received a full service by Aston Martin specialist Autosport Designs Inc. of New York at a cost of approximately $25,000. All systems were inspected, and the grey leather upholstery was professionally treated. A new factory headliner was installed, the wood veneer surfaces refinished, and the wheels received new tires. This motorcar’s single ownership, exhaustively documented service history with original Bill of Sale, build sheet, books, and tools, mark it as unique among the few Lagonda Series 3 examples built.
