First photos of production Aston Martin Lagonda surface, thanks to Oman Air

Aston Martin is doing something unique by producing a successor to the original Lagonda sedan from the 1970s and 1980s that only the Middle East could get their hands on.

Modeled and inspired directly from the original Lagonda, the new Lagonda is in essence a modernized version and is built by Aston’s new Q division. Although a price tag hasn’t been disclosed, nor hte identity of who the special customers are, the Lagonda was put into the spotlight by Oman Air as pre-production models are being shipped specifically by the air carrier so Aston could begin thorough testing of the vehicle in its bespoke market.

The new Lagonda utilizes the same VH platform as the current Rapide, with specially designed carbon fiber body panels to help reduce weight. Power is supplied by the same 6.0L naturally-aspirated V12 with around 600bhp on tap, sending its power to the rear-wheels via an eight-speed ZF-sourced auto. 0-100 km/h should occur in just 4.2 seconds. Deliveries are scheduled to begin next year with less than 100 units planned for production.
