Some cars are maybe a bit too ambitious for their own good.

Take the Aston Martin Lagonda. It had a digital dashboard back in the 1970s! It was decades ahead of its time.... and it showed.

The car’s systems were hopelessly unreliable with lots of proprietary work and “juvenile at best” construction, as one owner put it.

What other cars had technology hopelessly ahead of their time?
