Earlier this year, the official carrier of the Aston Martin Langoda, Oman Air, leaked the first images of the vehicle. Later this year, it was caught testing in the deserts of the Middle East, since it supposed to be sold in the Middle East market only. But now after much of the hype, Aston Martin has finally revealed the interior images of the production version of its new Lagonda ultra-luxury sedan, or super saloon as some markets call it.
The new Langoda is the tribute the original Langoda which went on sale in 1976 and remained on sale through 1990 selling only 650 pieces in 15 years. Aston is reviving the name again after 25 long years, although it will be an invitation only, very limited units to be sold in the Middle East market production model. It is not yet clear as to what engine will power the Lagonda, it is widely rumored that the power-train can be a V12, 5.9-litre engine producing enough power to reach 285 kmph mark.
The original Langoda was ahead of the time with its wedge-shaped design and the computerized engine management system with a digital instrument panel. The new Lagonda will again get a design philosophy ahead of its time, based on the 21st century technology, with the extensive use of the hand-built carbon-fiber exteriors. Aston Martin's Design director Marek Reichman said at a press conference held in Scotland that "the company aims to grow its portfolio with other vehicles wearing the Lagonda name."
Although very few details about the Langoda have been revealed, it is said that the new Lagonda is based on the latest VH architecture, which could be a stretched version of the Rapide S’ platform. The front end features sleek headlamps and strikingly large grille section, while the rear end has a streamlined tail-lamp. The interiors are equally striking with the exceedingly-luxurious offerings with diamond cut furnishing.
The prices and the delivery schedule have not revealed yet, but going by the cost of previous Langonda, the speculations are that the new Langida will exceed at-least $500,000 mark.
