Video - Aston Martin Lagonda caught on camera in UK

Snapshot: Aston Martin's flagship model spotted in London for the first time.

Billed as being the range-topping Aston Martin on sale today, the Lagonda super sedan managed to grab all the attention a few days ago when one of the first UK-spec cars with a right-hand drive was spotted on the crowded streets of London. With a massive £696,000 starting price, this is without any doubt one of the most exclusive AM models ever launched, in the same league with the rare One-77. As a matter of fact, there’s a connection between the two since Aston Martin is making the Lagonda at a special facility where they previously made the supercar.

Only 200 units are planned for production and although initially this was supposed to be sold only in the Middle East, availability has been expanded to South Africa, Continental Europe and of course, United Kingdom. The car looks quite big as it should for a range-topping model which is 5.4 meters long and looks distinctive compared to the current crop of AM models which from a design point of view are starting to look a bit dated, although the styling is still very appealing.

The main idea behind the resurrection of the Lagonda nameplate after several decades was to build the most luxurious Aston Martin ever and this full-size sedan is indeed the most upscale model AM has ever made. That doesn’t mean they neglected performances as the new Lagonda carries over the 550 bhp V12 engine from the Rapide S which ensures the model with a more than respectable top speed of 322 kmph, although frankly not many people will test its top speed, especially since those who buy such cars prefer to sit in the back and be chauffeured rather than drive.

Wealthy customers with the necessary funds to buy one of these have access to many personalization options offered by Aston Martin courtesy of its Q bespoke division, so each and every car will be unique, as it should taking into account the exorbitant price tag.
