The Aston Martin Lagonda has returned in several official images depicting a verification prototype which is currently undergoing testing in Oman. In the next four weeks it will cover approximately 14,000 miles and then it will go back to United Kingdom for another round of tests. Deliveries of the model are programmed to commence next year and less than 100 units will be made and sold only in the Middle East on an invitation basis. Details about pricing are not available at this point but it will probably be the second most expensive Aston Martin ever, after the One-77 supercar.
The Lagonda is bound to use a carbon fiber body and will ride on a modified VH platform sourced from the Aston Martin Rapide. Motivation is going to be provided by a 6.0-liter V12 engine tweaked to unleash somewhere in the region of 600 bhp sent to the rear axle through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This hardware configuration should allow the super sedan hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in approximately 4.2 seconds.
