The British brand Aston Martin announced the return of its Lagonda collection, 20 years after its last model came out. The future model will be produced in very limited editions and will adopt the previous models lines.
The Lagonda, Aston Martin’s answer to its oriental clientele
First produced by Aston Martin in 1974, the Lagonda was edited up until 1989. Thanks to the quantity of cars sold during that period (nearly 650), some agree that this model helped the British brand survive.
Nearly 20 years after the model ceased to be produced, the brand’s oriental clientele demands the return of this powerful and elegant car. In response, the manufacturer officially announced the launching of a new edition of this model in an extremely limited edition, available only in the Middle-East.
Contrary to the rumours circulating, the Lagonda’s new model will not be an SUV but a limousine.
A new version of the Lagonda
The future Lagonda will have the primary traits of its predecessor, designed in 1976. This luxury car should be built on Aston Martin’s current VH architecture, which provides the basis for all cars now produced.
Not many details concerning its components have been revealed yet, but nonetheless the brand did express its desire to manufacture it out of carbon fibre. Under its hood, the car should also host the traditional 6 litre V12 engine, borrowed from the Vantage S Roadster.
The vehicles prices is still a secret. Aston Martin did however declare that “this models quality and luxury will measure up to its exclusiveness”.
