Aston Martin has revived the “Lagonda” designation for a super sedan which in Dubai will be sold with the “Taraf” affix. The British marque is describing the model as “the finest of fast cars” and it will ride on the firm’s VH platform while the design is clearly inspired by the original Lagonda from way back in 1976. The high-end vehicle will be hand-built in Gaydon, Warwickshire by the “finest craftsmen and women” and there are some chances of seeing the Lagonda Taraf being sold elsewhere, including Europe but a final decision has not been taken at this moment.
Aston Martin has not provided details about what powers the limited edition Lagonda Taraf but according to various reports it has the familiar 6.0-liter V12 engine pumping out somewhere in the region of 600 bhp (447 kW) channeled to the rear axle with help from an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Pricing information is not available but needless to say it is way more expensive than the Aston Martin Rapide.
