It was in the October of 1976 that Aston Martin revealed a new shape Aston Martin Lagonda which had solid state digital instrumentation that justified it as being a new product. With initial production levels at one a week it wasn't until 1979 that the first cars was delivered. It wasn't until 1982 that the Aston Martin Lagonda was cleared for sale in the USA.

In 1984, a Long Wheelbase Tickford Limousine version was announced that had a TV in the front as well as the back. The Aston Martin Lagonda was updated again in 1987 when William Towns rounded off the edges of the car giving it a fresh new look. New enhancements included a re-designed nose where six smaller lights replace the pop-up headlamps and new 16" alloy wheels. A total of 645 chassis were built before the end of production in 1989, each car required about 2,200 man-hours and only about 25 were built per year for the U.S. market.
