The name of the American river Lagonda became known in England thanks to Wilbur Gunn, who founded the company of the same name in Staines in 1906.
Almost all Lagonda cars were designed for wealthy customers, and they were not inferior in quality to Bentley and Rolls-Royce products.
In addition, pre-war models had impressive performance: in 1935, the Lagonda M45R won the Le Mans.
Lagonda's finest car, the 1938 luxury Lagonda V12, was designed by Walter Bentley himself.
After the war, British businessman David Brown bought the company and merged it with Aston Martin.
From 1948 to 1964 several luxury models based on Aston Martin were released under the Lagonda brand, and then the brand actually ceased to be mentioned, if you do not take into account the 1976-1989 Aston Martin Lagonda 4-door sedans.
David Brown introduced the Lagonda branded high-end sports sedan, the Lagonda Rapide.
This car was built on an extended Aston Martin DB4 chassis with a 4-liter 6-cylinder engine producing 236 hp. and had an aluminum body designed by the Italian studio Touring..
This is where the history of the Lagonda brand ended, but in the Aston Martin lineup two more times (in 1974 and 1976) there were 4-door cars called Lagonda.
Finally, in 2010, the Aston Martin Rapide sedan, the successor to the Lagonda Rapide, was put into production.
Aston Martin is resurrecting its second brand in the model name Lagonda Taraf, an ultra-expensive and ultra-exclusive sedan for Arab sheiks.
The company's future plans include the release of new luxury cars under the Lagonda brand, in particular, a sports crossover.
