Hello, My name is***** am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer. I would be happy to help you. These cars were classic tour cars back in their day. In good driving condition the prices range from $80,000 to 100,000.00 depending on which you have. Aston Martin said on 1 September 2008 as reported by Automotive News Europe that it will relaunch its Lagonda brand to help it expand into new markets such as luxury sedans and celebrate Lagonda's centennial anniversary in 2009. There are more driven in the UK then in any other part of the world. Very nice classic car. If I may be of further help or if you have a more specific question please let me know.
