The Lagonda used to be produced during the ’70s. Back then, it used to be a four-door luxury sedan which could compete with such cars as the Mercedes’ S Class. In the ’90s, the production ceased, only to be continued once again this year.
The Aston Martin remains secretive about the exterior. However, from the official images it’s obvious that the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda retains Aston Martin trademark design elements: the ridges on the hood and the signature grille.
The headlights have been remodelled as well as the lower part of the bumper, which received a sporty look. The front fenders have been enriched with heat extractors with staple Aston strikethrough.
The rear of the 2016 Lagonda has received a slick spoiler. What is also reminiscent of Aston’s sports cars are the exhaust outlets and insert on the lower part of the rear bumper.
What remains beyond the pictures is the material used in the exterior production.
The exact details on the interior are still unknown, but in some spy photos the 2016 Lagonda seems incredibly classy. The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda cabin introduces light-brown, high-end leather, with the seats covered in diamond-quilted design on certain parts. The seat inserts seem to be wrapped in perforated leather. The vehicle has individual seats for each of the passengers, and they come with ventilation, heating, a massage system and a great support for the back.The transmission and many other controls tunnel is placed between the seats.
Engine and performance
When it comes to engine, the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda should also bring something unique and special.
The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda uses the stretched (to fit the longer body) chassis of the Rapide, therefore, a 6-liter V12 and a rear-wheel drive are expected to accompany it. This engine should produce 600 hp and up to 500 pound-feet of torque.
The vehicle like this should be able to develop acceleration 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds and the top speed of 180 mph (289 km/h).
Price and release date
Initially, the 2016 Lagonda was to be produced in limited numbers for the Middle East area exclusively, and only the customers chosen by the company were to be able to buy it.
On February 28, 2015 Aston Martin officially announced that the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda will be available to buyers around the world, but in limited numbers. Now, the company accepts orders from the EU and South Africa customers.
The price remains unknown, but it’s estimated that the price won’t go under $500,000.
