The upcoming Aston Martin Lagonda super sedan has officially been teased and confirmed for production starting early next year.
As previously expected, production of the Aston Martin Lagonda will be extremely limited. As a matter of fact, the car will only be available to customers on an invitation-only basis. However, small numbers of the Aston Martin Lagonda are expected to be made available in the Middle East.
It remains unclear just what will power the Aston Martin Lagonda, but it is suggested that the 5.9-litre V12 from the Rapide S will be utilised. When found in the Rapide, this engine delivers 550 hp as well as 457 lb-ft of torque helping it to hit 100 km/h in under 5 seconds. In the Lagonda, this power will be sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed X7 automatic gearbox.
When discussing the upcoming model, Aston Martin design director Marek Reichman said, “The new model, like its exclusive siblings the One-77 and V12 Zagato, has been created as a piece of exceptional automotive art.
“It has been designed and developed entirely in keeping with the spirit and ethos of previous Lagonda super saloons – notably the William Towns Lagonda – and as a tribute to this car it proudly bears the Lagonda nameplate.”
