I am getting quite a Buick vibe...

Aside from the interior, that car is damn sexy. What is it with Aston Martins that makes me want to buy one so bad no matter the model?

Thats kinda funny, just last night I was going through a few of these 80's early 90's Astons. They arent the styling statement the current cars or the older DB4's & 5's were but their OK.

Why Buick , I think because, for myself, I see Buick should have this type of car. A highend luxury sports car. Which is what the motive of the origional Riviera was. In an American sence but they were after that high class, yet sporty grand tourismo look.

I dont think there is much about this car that resembles any Buicks. A bit LeSabre Ttype in the tailights and rectangle headlights like most late 80's cars had.

edit: I see now, its the front directionals, located in the bumpers and the air damn, very similar to T type.

T type is better styling wise, this has a mechanical edge though.

That interior actually isn't too bad for an early 90s car...I like the color combination they used. The center stack is a bit of a box, but overall it's pretty nice.

What do you guys think of the Aston Martin Lagonda? I've personally never really been a fan...I like boxy cars, but the shape of the Lagonda is a little strange...and it's a far leap from the sexy shapes Aston normally has.

I love the Virage...so nice.

But the Lagonda...eww. It looks like a stylized and reworked Volvo to me...the Rapide's much nicer.

The Lagonda was one of my favorite vehicles at the time. Boxy styling was in then, and this took it to an extreme. The interior was very "high tech" with all the digital displays and buttons galore.

Yea, Id have to look up the year, but I believe Lagonda was a styling statement. I never liked it, always prefering the curvacious voluptuous styling of the European 50's & 60's.

Think of the Seville, or how about the 80's Celica GT, so many others with flat sides and panels, hoods and trunks.

Seems like there was another big buck European car with similar styling.
