Aston Martin finally unveiled the Lagonda saloon in Dubai last week at an event. Being christended as "Lagonda Taraf", it would go on sale in the Middle East countries. But, the company has also hinted that it might be offered to several other international countries as well, including India. It is hand-built by the finest craftsmen and women at Aston Martin’s manufacturing facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

Based on the brand’s almost infinitely flexible VH architecture, the new 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 use of carbon fibre body panels. Andy Palmer, the newly appointed CEO of Aston Martin said, "It is clear from the initial reaction to the car that interest from around the world is extremely high, and I can confirm today that we are also evaluating the opportunity to offer this Lagonda in other markets.” This super saloon, in almost production ready stage, was also captured recently in Oman as a test mule.

Under the hood, the Lagonda saloon would have a naturally aspirated 5.9L V12 motor which also powers company's another model Rapide S. This engines dishes out a massive power of 550 bhp and peak torque of 620Nm. It propels the saloon the touch the 100kmph mark from standstill in a sub 5-second time with a top speed of 306kmph. The Aston Martin Lagonda is a strictly limited series which revives the historic Lagonda badge
