VH Lagonda ‘Super Saloon’ prototype

(2014)

The Lagonda badge has only seen sporadic use since the demise of the William Towns styled 'wedge' Lagonda in 1990. Apart from the exclusive coach built 4 door Virage saloons, it hasn't been possible to buy a new Lagonda for 24 years. But the marque will live again with the announcement that Aston Martin are to offer a bespoke new super saloon that will see the revival of the historic Lagonda nameplate in a strictly limited series. As has traditionally been the case, the Lagonda badge will once again sit proudly on a luxurious and exclusive super saloon.

The stunning luxury super saloon revives the Lagonda ethos of ‘the finest of fast cars’ is to be built using the VH architecture of the existing Rapide and will be offered exclusively in the Middle East, apparently as a result of specific market demand.

The new car, perhaps surprisingly, has drawn  inspiration from the William Towns-designed ‘wedge’ Lagonda (1976 – 1990) and features many of the same cutting edge engineering techniques seen in current Aston Martin sports cars such as the use of carbon fibre in the body panels. The engine will probably be the AM29 spec engine already being used in the Rapide S.

The return of the Lagonda and the as yet un-named  ’super saloon’ follows in the wake of other specialist projects such as the One-77, V12 Zagato and the 2013s CC100 Speedster Concept, a car already regarded as the ultimate Q by Aston Martin car.

It will be hand-built by the finest craftsmen and women at Aston Martin’s modern manufacturing facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire in a dedicated building previously used for building the One-77 and V12 Zagato.

The new super saloon will be offered for sale by invitation only to discerning customers who are seeking the ultimate in luxury and personalisation. AM have not revelled the potential asking price but have stated that it will be ‘commensurate with the car’s exclusivity, quality and luxurious nature.’ Or using my vocabulary, this is a classic example of ‘if you have to ask the price, you cannot afford it’
