Aston Martin has come one step closer to officially unveiling the brand new 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda sedan through the release of more official images. Unfortunately, many details about the car have yet to be released and remain somewhat of a mystery.
Aston Martin has decided to restrict production to the Middle East because of a specific market demand for cars like this there. 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 ZF automatic gearbox.
From a visual standpoint, the new Aston Martin Lagonda sedan has a design reminiscent of the original. As a result, it features quite a boxy shape with sharp lines as well as very thin headlights and taillights and a low roofline.
It remains unclear how much the car will cost but it will be manufactured in the same Gaydon facility responsible for the Aston Martin One-77. Helping to ensure that it is lightweight, the new Aston Martin Lagonda will use carbon fibre for its exterior panels.
