I absolutely refuse to speak on the new, limited-production Lagonda sedan that has only been confirmed by Aston Martin for the Middle Eastern market. That car that I won’t speak of touched down in Oman this August and is based on the bones of Aston Martin’s Rapide sedan and shares that model’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine. Said car will be built by hand by a team of craftsmen back at Aston Martin’s main facility in Gaydon, England—in the same building previously used for the One-77 hypercar’s construction, in fact. Cars will be produced in limited numbers with all purchases through invitation only for Aston Martin’s Middle Eastern customers. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2015.
While we feel a bit jaded at Aston’s apparent snuff of other markets, Aston Martin is planning more coachbuilt vehicles as an expansion of its personalization service. That’s good to hear and maybe there will be an exclusive car for the U.S. Market that Sheiks and Maharajahs will miss out on.
Oh yeah, we threw in some pictures of the interior of the car we’re not getting.
