Check out the next generation of the Aston Martin Lagonda. Try not to form a fatal attraction to the beast, because we cannot get it here. The former Lagonda was hideous. This sleek and elongated number will only be available to a select number of customers, by invitation only, in the Middle East.
The brand has released the first official images of the production version of the next gen Aston Martin Lagonda. Compared to its predecessor below, it is clear that 25 years off has made an impact on the lady.
The Aston Martin Lagonda was a grand touring luxury saloon built between 1974 and 1990. During that run, 645 units of the Lagonda were produced, and the general consensus is that none of them were exactly easy on the eyes. Now 25 years later, the new Lagonda is pretty much eye candy in comparison. The awkward wedgy design was quite startling and futuristic for its time, similar to the Delorean of ‘Back to the Future’. Comparing the new one to the older versions is like comparing Paula Abdul to Megan Fox.
So far, Aston Martin has merely been busy teasing the masses with word of the limited edition Lagonda. A few details are available, however, including news of a 6.0-liter V12 being the likely candidate for the engine. The design platform will take features from the Aston Martin Vantage and Vanquish, peppering them in with a bit of historical Lagonda elongation. Will the brand be using the Middle East to gauge interest for a possible worldwide Lagonda return? We will have to wait and see what unfolds.
