Wonderful cars in the world
Aston Martin Lagonda
Theres no doubting the prestige of Englands premier sports car manufacturer. Over the last century, Aston Martin can lay claims todozens of wonderful and beautiful automobiles. The Lagonda, however, wonderful as it may be, wasnt exactly beautiful. The first thing youll notice is its extreme and polarizing design, but its whats on the inside that counts.
While it might seem commonplace now for cars to have electronic parts, the Lagonda was the first car to possess a digital LED touchsensitive dashboard. This was all the way back in 1976. Digital dashboards in an era where leaded gasoline was still being phased out proved difficult, and the Lagonda went through numerous redesigns before eventually settling on fluorescent vacuum tubes for its futuristic display.
The Lagonda soldiered on and continued to develop all the way up to 1990, even adopting recorded voice commands in 1984, programmable in English, German, French, and Arabic. The inclusion of Arabic was important, as the Lagonda sold very well in the Middle East.
