We are reporting live from the Geneva Motor Show 2015 where the beautiful and exclusive Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf has been displayed.
After the long-awaited Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf was introduced late in 2013, the British firm confirmed it would be restricted to the Middle East. Fast forward a few months however and it has been confirmed that the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf will be available to customers around the world as demand has been deemed sufficient. It seems the luxurious nature and bold styling of the car has been popular amongst wealthy Aston Martin fans.
More specifically, the Lagonda Taraf is available to purchase in EU legislation-compliant Continental Europe as well as the United Kingdom and South Africa. As such, the luxury sedan will be modified to now be available in left and right-hand drive specifications. All told, production of the Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf will be limited to just 200 units around the world.
“Opening up the Lagonda Taraf to an increased number of customers around the world was a high priority for me as soon as I joined Aston Martin late last year. I wanted to be able to offer this exceptional saloon to the potential owners from around the globe who have been enquiring about it, and I’m very happy that we have been able to expand the Lagonda proposition.”
The magnificent handmade four-door super-sports saloon measuring 5,396.5mm long and riding on a 3,189mm wheelbase, gets the 5.9-litre V12 with around 550 hp and new eight-speed ZF automatic transaxle gearbox from the latest Aston Martin Rapide S. Yet despite being half a metre longer than the Rapide for the class-leading rear cabin, it weighs the same as its sibling for zesty performance.
