The Aston Martin Lagonda is one of the most exclusive nameplates in the company’s history, and now a select few lucky customers in the Middle East will be able to own a modern version of this ultra-luxury sedan.
The Aston Martin Lagonda was originally a limited-run sedan that premiered in 1976 with revolutionary wedge styling. Only 645 were ever made, and the modern Lagonda will have a similarly limited production run exclusively for customers in the Middle East. The new Aston Martin Lagonda also takes some styling inspiration from its predecessor with its long, dramatic lines and angular front end. In the single profile photo Aston Martin revealed, we can see that the Lagonda is a long-wheelbase sedan with a tapered, fastback-like rear end. The traditional Aston Martin grille appears to be in place up front, and rear LED taillights seem to mimic the shape of other Aston Martin sports cars.
At this point Aston Martin hasn’t shared many details about the Lagonda sedan, but the company does say that this model is based on the existing VH architecture that underpins all Aston models. When we spied this big Aston sedan testing a few months ago, the rumor was that the Lagonda would be powered by a V-12 engine producing at least 550 hp.
In order to maintain the exclusivity of the Aston Martin Lagonda, the company will sell this ultra-luxury sedan in the Middle East by invitation only. This means that the price is likely astronomical, as Aston Martin categorizes this model with previous bespoke models like the One-77 supercar and V12 Zagato sports coupe. Stay tuned for more information about the Aston Martin Lagonda in the coming months.
