2015 Aston Martin Lagonda reveals its interior

Aston Martin already revealed the 2015 Lagonda super saloon, its brand new vehicle that will be exclusively sold in the Middle East on an invitation-only basis. Still, we didn’t know how the interior of the new vehicle will look like. Today, the British manufacturer unveiled the first photos with the interior and as expected, it is remarkable.

Nothing new here, but the dashboard looks almost identical to the Rapide, while the rest of the interior was designed by Aston Martin’s Q division a.k.a. the brand’s bespoke customization division.

Regarding the exterior design, this is inspired by the 1976 Lagonda and based on the flexible VH architecture. Under the hood, we expect to find the same 6.0-liter V12 found on the Rapide S, which means the vehicle is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine.

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

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.

2015 Aston Martin Lagonda goes to Oman for hot weather testing

Aston Martin officially announced the 2015 Lagonda super saloon last month and told us that it will be offered exclusively in the Middle East due to the market demand. Based on the flexible VH architecture and inspired by the iconic 1976 Lagonda, the new vehicle will be powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 engine used by the Rapide S.

We don’t know the output delivered on the Lagonda, but we do know that on the Rapide S, the engine generates 552 bhp and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. We also expect the new vehicle to be quick because the Rapide S accelerates from 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.

Aston Martin is expected to use the same Touchtronic III eight-speed automatic gearbox in order to make it more fuel-efficient. In addition, power will be sent to the rear wheels.

2015 Aston Martin Lagonda super saloon announced exclusively for Middle East

Aston Martin plans to make a comeback for the Lagonda nameplate. This historic and traditional nameplate will see a revival in the latest super saloon but in a limited offering. The Lagonda has been proudly known to be the mark when it comes to being the ‘finest of fast cars’.

The Lagonda though will only be made available in the super saloon that is marketed to the Middle East market, mainly due to the increasing demand. This particular offering follows many other Aston Martin releases that have continuously been grabbing headlines like the One-77 hypercar and V12 Zagato.

This particular announcement also follows on the heels of the CC100 Speedster Concept which many have said is the ultimate Q manufactured by the brand. Originally part of the company’s centenary celebration, the CC100 Speedster Concept had a revival of its own through two customer commissions mainly as a result of the very exceptional demand.

Aston Martin wants to resurrect the Lagonda badge on a sedan, according to media reports in the United Kingdom. The new sedan, however, will not share the styling of the heavily panned Lagonda SUV Concept unveiled at the 2009 Geneva auto show. According to reports, new Lagonda sedan will carry either the proportions or the styling of the 1976-90 Lagonda sedan.

Lagonda was established by Wilbur Gunn 108 years ago. At its peak, Lagonda was considered a serious rival to ultra-luxury brands like Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Bentley founder W. O. Bentley moved to Lagonda in 1931 after the collapse of his own company, and designed Lagonda’s LG6 model.

That model was Aston Martin’s inspiration for the Lagonda SUV concept unveiled in 2009. In 1947, Lagonda’s financial troubles resulted to its acquisition by David Brown, who had earlier taken control of Aston Martin.

Aston Martin is proceeding with its development of an SUV that will compete with the upcoming Bentley EXP 9 F. This model is based loosely on the Lagonda Concept that was seen at the 2009 Geneva motor show but Aston aims to come up with a total shift in its style after the show car received mostly criticisms for it. Similar to the 2009 car, the new SUV will be based on the underpinnings of the Mercedes-Benz G-class.

Aston discloses that a deal has been entered for Mercedes to be the supplier of platforms, drivetrains and engines. It’s likely that Aston will offer its 6.0-litre V12 in a flagship model, says Autocar.

The other possibilities include a variety of smaller petrol and diesel models and a hybrid. The styling will be very different from the concept but it’s still uncertain whether this new SUV will carry an Aston Martin badge or a Lagona (just like the show car).

It appears that Aston Martin has big plans and wants to bring again to the market the iconic Lagonda brand, which means a new range of new models are expected. As you may know already, back in 2008 at the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin brought the Lagonda SUV Concept, a car based on the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

The Lagonda SUV Concept was abandoned due to the negative feedback received by the British manufacturer.

Still, the upcoming Lagonda models will be four-wheel-drive SUVs and target emerging markets such as Russia and China, says Autocar. Apparently, this decision was taken because there are limits to where you can drive a sports car, although Aston Martin has dealerships in 35 countries.
