The Lagonda Taraf, se to be built in just 200 units, will be offered to clients – via Aston Martin’s VIP sales programme – in EU legislation-compliant Continental Europe, the United Kingdom and South Africa, and has been be re-engineered to be available in either left or right-hand drive.
Initially available only to buyers in the Middle East, where it was launched in Dubai late last year, the Lagonda Taraf is based on the brand’s flexible VH architecture and draws inspiration from the William Towns-designed Lagonda of 1976.
It features many of the same techniques and solutions seen in modern Aston Martin sports cars, such as the extensive use of carbon fibre body panels.
The car is hand-built by the finest craftsmen and women at Aston Martin’s manufacturing facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire, in a dedicated building previously given over to the creation of the One-77 supercar.
CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: “Opening up the Lagonda Taraf to an increased number of customers around the world was a high priority for me as soon as I joined Aston Martin late last year. I wanted to be able to offer this exceptional saloon to the potential owners from around the globe who have been enquiring about it, and I’m very happy that we have been able to expand the Lagonda proposition.”
The return of Lagonda follows in the wake of other bespoke special projects by Aston Martin such as the creation of the extreme Aston Martin Vulcan supercar, Vantage GT3 special edition, One-77, V12 Zagato and the CC100 Speedster Concept.
Each Lagonda customer will have the option of customize the car via the Q by Aston Martin bespoke service.
