The striking car features quirky late 1980s styling, in a distinctly wedge shaped form.

This styling continues in the cabin, with an eye-catching blue leather square dashboard hosting a computer management system and a digital instrumentation panel – of which the Lagonda was the world's first production car to feature.

Special order blue paintwork adorns the exterior, while cream leather seats with sky blue piping are complemented by natural ash wood surrounds.

The final of the Lagonda models, the series IV was introduced at the 1987 Geneva Motor Show. It had received slight alterations by the car's original designer, William Towns, which included the rounding of the car's sharp edges and the introduction of the iconic triple stack headlight arrangement flanking the grille, replacing the previous pop-up lights.

This example boasts the upgraded fuel injection system for its 5.3-litre V8 powerplant, which allows for a more user-friendly and efficient power delivery. Its 280bhp output is sent to the rear wheels via an automatic gearbox, allowing the model to reach 60mph from a standstill in less than nine seconds.

Having covered just 20,340 miles in its 25-year history, this example is listed as being in an outstanding condition and has an asking price of £95,000.

In 2011, there were reportedly only 81 Series IV models left registered in the United Kingdom, 32 of which were SORN.
