Information

The Lagonda Vignale was prototype concept car that never made it to the production line. It was a five-seater concept car built by Ghia.  3 cars in total were built, 2 by Ghia and one by the Aston Martin Lagonda factory in Newport Pagnell. One of the Ghia cars was destroyed.

The 2 Vignales Ghia built were based on a 1990 Lincoln Town Car chassis and used the 4.6 L Ford Modular V8 engine.

The third car, built by the Works Service department and codenamed DP2138, featured a myriad of changes from the original design with the intention of putting the car into production. It used a different Ford platform, giving it smaller dimensions, changes to the design, including a 5.9 L V12 engine originally planned for the concept. Additionally, it could only seat four as the rear bench seat had been replaced by twin armchairs. Only one example was built and it was sold to the Sultan of Brunei in 1995.
