Back in the 70s Aston Martin Lagonda cars used to amaze people by extraordinary styling, unique equipment and exaggerated price. A few decades later Aston Martin is planned to reveal the Lagonda brand, to compete with Bentley and Maserati vehicles. Let’s see what has changed in the concept of luxurious and fast vehicle by Aston Martin.
It should be noted that new Lagonda concept was presented in 2015 Geneva Auto Show and expected to be on sale just after the presentation. However, something went wrong and we didn’t hear a thing about big Aston sedan. It was unavailable for sale and there was no information about the price and availablilty, expect the fact that Lagonda will be a 200-pieces limited edition vehicle, just like Aston Martin Vulcan and GT12 Vantage.
The other detail – Lagonda will be officially named Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf, which reminds something Middle Eastern.

Back in 2015, there was certain speculation that 2017 Lagonda will have enormous price tag of $950,000. It might be the most expensive sedan ever, comparing to Rolls-Royce Phantom $500,000. However, the exact pricing is still unknown, so the final price might be decreased.

There are not many details about the new sedan Lagonda Taraf (Aston Martin brand is not mentioned in the official materials). We only know that it is based on VH platform, on which basis, in particular, built the Vanquish coupe and convertible, and the Lagonda body panels will be made of carbon fiber.
But what really surprised is the Aston Martin’s bosses statement that Lagonda Taraf will be exclusively sold on the Middle East market “for discerning customers who particularly appreciate superb luxury and personalization.” However, it worked – the company has been receiving a great number of requests for a novelty from different parts of the world, and in 2015 the plans changed a little. The manufacturer decided to increase the production number of the car twice – up to 200 units, although initially it was only about a hundred cars, and sales geography has been expanded. So that in the end customers from Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, India and Russia will be able to buy a sedan. However, there is still no information regarding North America.
