Not long after the rather shocking spy shots emerged, new details have surfaced about the relaunch of the Lagonda brand after a mysterious sedan was spied testing. It was soon discovered that the car was registered to Aston Martin and just like that, the general consensus that Lagonda would be relaunched with an SUV was busted.
Car Magazine claims that the new Aston Martin Lagonda sedan will be created by the company’s personalisation department, Q by Aston Martin with the model being extremely limited. As a matter of fact, less than 100 units are likely to be produced.
Under the hood, the car is pinned to utilise Aston Martin’s staple range-topping 5.9-litre V12 engine mated to an updated eight-speed automatic transmission. Consequently, the Lagonda sedan could prove one of the last V12 powered Aston Martins before the twin-turbocharged AMG engines become available. The V12 powertrain should deliver around 600 hp in Lagonda sedan specification.
One of the most interesting things about the recently spied prototype is the resemblance it shares with the original Aston Martin Lagonda, a sedan produced from 1974 to 1990. The prototype features a very boxy shape with extremely short overhangs, prominent C-pillars, and an extended rear window unlike the Rapide.
It is speculated that the new Aston Martin Lagonda will debut in the coming months!
