ASTON MARTIN EXPANDS LAGONDA TARAF LUXURY SALOON AVAILABILITY

◾New Lagonda Taraf will be offered to customers outside the Middle East
◾Series production remains limited to 200 bespoke limousines
◾Super saloon will be available in left or right-hand drive

28 February 2015, Gaydon: Aston Martin is today announcing that the luxurious new Lagonda super saloon will be made available, in strictly limited numbers, to more customers around the world.

Aston Martin will now accept orders for the Lagonda Taraf – the latest in a proud line of saloons revered worldwide as 'the finest of fast cars' – from prospective owners in more major markets. It is now available to clients in EÚ legislation-compliant Continental Europe, the Únited Kingdom and South Africa, wîth the Lagonda Taraf now re-engineered to be available in either left or right-hand drive.

CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: 'Opening up the Lagonda Taraf to an increased number of customers around the world was a high priority for me as soon as I joined Aston Martin late last year. I wanted to be able to offer this exceptional saloon to the potential owners from around the globe who have been enquiring about it, and I'm very happy that we have been able to expand the Lagonda proposition.'

Initially available only to buyers in the Middle East, where it was launched in Dubai late last year, the Lagonda Taraf is being built in a strictly limited small series of no more than 200 cars.

Vital Stats

The return of Lagonda follows in the wake of other bespoke special projects by Aston Martin such as the creation of the extreme Aston Martin Vulcan supercar, Vantage GT3 special edition, One-77, V12 Zagato and the CC100 Speedster Concept.


Based on the brand's almost infinitely flexible VH architecture, the saloon draws inspiration from the highly sought-after William Towns-designed Lagonda of 1976 and features many of the same cutting edge engineering techniques seen in modern Aston Martin sports cars, such as the extensive use of carbon fibre body panels.

The car is hand-built by the finest craftsmen and women at Aston Martin's state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire, in a dedicated building previously given over to the creation of the One-77 supercar.

The 6.0-litre V12-engined super saloon is being offered to clients through Aston Martin's VIP sales programme wîth precise pricing details remaining confidential, and likely to be significantly different in each case due to very high levels of bespoke content. Naturally, each Lagonda customer will have the option of ensuring their car is truly unique by personalising it via the popular Q by Aston Martin bespoke service.

Dr Palmer said: 'As a result of today's announcement we anticipate very quick expressions of interest from customers around the world, many of whom will want to add Lagonda to their luxury and sports car collections.

'Aside from its confident style, many buyers will also recognise this Lagonda Taraf as a piece of automotive history, following in the tracks of its distinguished predecessor the William Towns Lagonda.'

He added: 'I'm also particularly pleased that we have been able to engineer Lagonda for right-hand drive markets meaning, of course, that I'm sure we will see the car in use on Aston Martin's 'home ground' of the ÚK in due course.'
