2015 Aston Martin Lagonda shows every angle during hot weather testing in Middle east

Article by Christian A., on September 7, 2014

Last month, the 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda super saloon headed to the Middle East for hot weather testing and the finals version was revealed by Omain Air and not the by the British manufacturer. Still, Aston Martin unveiled today the first official photos with the 2015 Lagonda.

The photos show the testing vehicle from every angle and honestly to tell you we are impressed by its design. The 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda super saloon is inspired by the 1976 Lagonda and is based on the flexible VH architecture. Under its long hood, we find the same 6.0-liter V12 that powers the Rapide S, which means that the beating heart is a 6.0-liter V12 engine.

Although we don’t know that output delivered on the Lagonda, the V12 engine generates 552 bhp and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque on the Rapide S. As a result, it pushes the four-door coupe form 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds), while top speed is in excess of 200 mph or 320 km/h.

We expect the 2015 Lagonda to be as fast at the Rapide S as the vehicle features carbon fiber panels but also the Touchtronic III eight-speed automatic gearbox. Power is delivered to the rear wheels.

The upcoming super saloon will be available exclusively in the Middle East and on an invitation-only basis. In addition, it will be hand-built at company’s plant in Gaydon, same place where the One-77 supercar was built.
