2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Release Date, Price, Interior, Specs – The Lagonda name, initially used by Aston Martin for its ultra-expensive, hand built sedan between ’76 and ’90, made a comeback around 5 years ago when the British company introduced the Lagonda Concept.
Rather oddly, the concept did not have anything to do with the four door tourer, though the sporty crossover self-proclaimed itself that it would offer more luxury in comparison to the Porsche Cayenne. Ever since, rumours have been going back and forth with no relevance, however the middle ground is that the car might find itself in showrooms by next year.
However, we have to put the possibility of the Lagonda behind us at the moment, because it seems the luxury segment manufacturer is set to unleash a potentially vicious nameplate which will be known as the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda.
Details are submerged for now, however it’s still safe to assume that the iconic sedan will be based on the Rapid S platform. More details should be forthcoming later in the year, so stay tuned to carreleasedates2017.com for all the updates.
Exterior – 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda
The upcoming new 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda which will also be known as 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf is scheduled to be offered in the Middle East before being made available to other parts of the world.
Despite the images we have of the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda, the exact exterior features are still a hard nut to crack. However, from the images we have of the new Lagonda, and which were provided by Aston Martin, we can clearly see that the Taraf carries distinct Aston Martin’s design elements.
These elements include the iconic signature grille and ridges on the hood too. Still on the front fascia, it is visibly clear that the headlights seem to stray from the classic Aston style while the lower lip on the bumper adds a sportiness cue to the luxo-sedan.
Down the sideways, the Taraf’s doors come with flash door handles and more shimmering chrome that surround the side windows. At the back, the fresh sedan from Aston Martin now comes with a slick spoiler that resembles those from the on the automaker’s sports cars.
Furthermore, the iconic Aston Martin’s signatures continue with the chrome applique that passes in between the posterior lights. The exhaust inserts and outlets beneath the rear bumper are reminiscent of the legendary Aston Martin’s sports cars too.
Within the interior of the new vehicle is an incredible environment. In the cabin you will find light brown high end leather. On the outer edges of the seats and headrests, you will find diamond quilted design, while the seats will seem to have perforated leather.
The setup of its interior will be 2+2, this shows the level of DNA of this model-comfort and driving appeal. While every tiny bit of its cabin will be pure leather and metal accents that will guarantee nothing but sheer luxury.
Sadly, the automobile giant only tossed to us these images but never left any details whatsoever. So what is left for us is to speculate and wish they do so soon.
Beneath the bonnet of the upcoming 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda sedan, buyers should expect no changes apart from braking and suspension upgrades. The engine that will be provided under its hood will be a 6L V12 engine.
The V12 engine will be responsible for a fantastic output of around 600 hp and 500 pounds of torque. This output will be lower in comparison to the previously projected output from the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda concept which forecasted 40 hp more.
From the engine, buyers should expect an acceleration of 0-62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. While the top speed will be an awesome 186 mph. it is most likely that the new Lagonda will have its power transmitted to the rear wheel drive through the 8-spedd auto transmission system.
Price and Release date of Aston Martin Lagonda 2016
The automaker recently revealed that the new Taraf will only be built in limited numbers and initially offered to the Middle East market. Other markets in the West will have to wait for an invite (if there will be any) from Aston Martin.
The pricing has been made confidential, but we speculate that it will probably cost in excess of half a million dollars.
