Aston Martin has released more images of the highly-exclusive Aston Martin Langonda Sedan. It is currently undergoing hot-weather testing in Oman, and the images show a fine looking machine.
The Aston Martin Lagonda will bring back a nameplate that has represented what the luxury marque stands for apart from it’s performance machines. Styling wise, you notice the very low and sleek body, it is very understated save for the huge grille at the front. The lights, front and back, are very sleek and reek of class. You also sense the space that this car will offer to the passengers at the back, the rear seats are really pushed back.
Check out the images below.

The Aston Martin Lagonda is undergoing hot weather testing in Oman, and the first images of the car come from Oman Air who helped transport the car.
Though not of very high quality, you can see that the highly exclusive sedan will be a looker and will look unique among all other cars in the Aston Martin stable. It is expected to be powered by the same V12 engine that powers the Rapide S sedan, it could be re-tuned though. A six-speed ZF transmission may be used, with power being sent to the rear wheels. As stated earlier, the sedan will be exclusively sold to customers in the middle-east where there is a high demand for such a car. It will be sold by invitation only to keep it’s exclusive image.

After a long cycle of speculation, rumours, if’s and but’s, Aston Martin has finally given the first glimpse of its super saloon, the Lagonda. A successor of the iconic 1976 Lagonda sedan, the new model will be inspired by the Aston Martin Centennial edition cars created by Zagato to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the British manufacturer. As is the case with anniversary editions the Aston Martin Lagonda will be manufactured as a limited series production model which would also give the British the opportunity to attach a hefty price tag to the newly resurrected Lagonda.
Speaking about the Lagonda, 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.”
The Lagonda will be built on Aston Martin’s universal VH platform which also underpins the British manufacturer’s entire line-up, right from the V8 Vantage to the four-door Rapide. Powering the rear wheels will be a 6.0-litre V12 engine, churning out 565 BHP at the very least.
The bummer in the whole deal is that even if you are willing to spend the kind of money demanded by Aston Martin, the company plans on selling the Lagonda only in the Middle East and by invitation only. The whole project got the green light because of “specific market demand” in the Middle East for such a car. Production will be at Aston Martin’s Gaydon facility in the UK, using the same facilities and specialist staff as constructed each One-77 coupe. The goal is a car that not only cossets the driver and passenger, but does so with the performance you’d expect from an Aston Martin.
