Here is the last great Aston Martin Lagonda, the high-performance saloon made exclusively for the Middle East to the delight of Aston Martin’s best customers. We are talking about the rebirth of Lagonda as a manufacturer, and for this reason inspiration has been sought in Lagonda’s more recent past, but using the latest technology and technique developed by Aston Martin. A total of 100 units that will sign a coveted limited series that will surely not take long to revalue, and that also helps us to discover the future of Aston Martin Lagonda in this new stage and through 29 images.
We are talking about a very Aston design, but especially, we are talking about a very Lagonda design. Inspiration is unmistakable based on the latest product Lagonda brought to market. Straight lines and very defined and refined lines make the Aston Martin Lagonda a classic that exudes history throughout its body.
Based on the structure of the Aston Martin Rapide S, an aluminum VH platform, the Aston Martin Lagonda puts an equally high-performance approach on the road, but with an even more exclusive nuance. Handcrafted by Aston’s special operations department, Q by Aston Martin, the new Lagonda saloon will be fitted out according to the requirements of its owners, making each Lagonda a one-off.
Among the most outstanding details, we find the integration of the same door opening system that Aston offers in its models, with a very steep angle, a more than remarkable wheelbase and a passenger compartment that is far behind the front axle due to the thruster location V12 in a central-forward arrangement.
At the moment, only the manufacture of one unit has been reported, this one that appears in images and that has been transferred to Oman. This unit is conducting the relevant verification tests, a process that will take place over the next four weeks and will require more than 22,000 kilometers between deserts, infinite highways and petrodollars. After all, the Aston Martin Lagonda will be tuned in the same conditions that its future customers enjoy on a daily basis, and that will surely be common in the use of each of the 100 units.
The bodywork is made entirely of carbon fiber, a technique in which Aston Martin already has experience following the development of the Aston Martin One-77. Under the hood we find the 6.0 engine V12 with 600 hp of maximum power associated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The traction is carried out on the rear train, achieving the 0-100 Km / h in 4.2 seconds.
There will be many who criticize the design of the Aston Martin Lagonda, and even more knowing its proximity to the Rapide S, but the reality is that the resurgence of Lagonda has been carried out in style, combining the best of the current Aston Martin and the best of what Lagonda was long ago.
