Aston Martin have announced that they will be creating a limited series of the iconic Lagonda. The four door super sedan, which is inspired by the Lagonda saloons designed by William Towns in the 1970s and 80s, is particularly influenced by the 1976 model.
Lagonda was originally founded in 1906, before being bought by Aston Martin in 1947. Aston Martin’s new take on the car will combine influences from the past with the company’s new methods of construction. The car will be created using the VH chassis structure of Aston Martin’s latest models, as well as having carbon fibre body panels. It is to be hand-built at the company’s plant in Warwickshire, where the renowned One-77 was created.
The new Lagonda will only be available to a handful of customers in the Middle East, who will only be able to buy the model on invitation. Aston Martin’s design director, Marek Reichman, said: "The debut of this luxury super saloon in the Middle East market will be an exciting moment not only for Aston Martin, but for discerning customers who are seeking the ultimate in luxury and personalization."
The new saloon will be available in 2015. Aston Martin have not disclosed the price of this highly exclusive car.
