2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Extravagant Sedan
The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda, an exclusive luxury sedan which will be released in a limited number of units, is expected to be released sometime next year. Aside from the fact that it will released in 100 units only, the price which hasn’t been disclosed yet — but it’s estimated at approximately $500,000 — will be yet another reason why there won’t be many new Lagondas on the roads. The manufacturer decided to offer the sedan to the Middle Eastern customers by invitation, so if you see one of these in person, you should consider yourself extremely lucky. Although there were some expectations that the Lagonda name will be used for the very first Aston Martin SUV, the manufacturer decided to use it for the hand-built super sedan which will be an epitome of luxury and extravagance. The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda is a car which will be an example of what the automaker can produce and how perfect their car can be. It’s not a secret that the 2016 Lagonda will cost a fortune, thus it’s hard to believe that it’s not about the money, but it really isn’t. It’s all about prestige and honor.
Platform And Engine Borrowed From Aston Martin Rapide
Aside from the VH platform borrowed from the Rapide sedan, the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda also took the Rapide’s engine. The platform will be adjusted to the size of the 2016 Lagonda. As for the engine, the 6.0-liter V12 mill, whose power output is around 600 horsepower, will be paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Appearance
The appearance of the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda is modern and extravagant. Below the smooth and modern surface, this car keeps the style of the legendary Towns Lagonda. It can be anticipated in the subtle hints the contemporary designed sedan shared with the Lagonda fans. Of course, the 2016 Lagonda will have a front fascia which clearly declares its affiliation to the Aston Martin range. With a large grille and narrow, sharp headlights, the sedan looks sportier and more powerful. Looking at the front fascia, you’d unmistakably recognize an Aston Martin. If you’re a true enthusiast, you could find various design elements which reveal which automaker made this car. From the outlets on the front fenders to the exhaust tips, every single detail has the same DNA. On the other hand, the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda is pretty unique. It’s not an unusual Aston Martin, it doesn’t have those curves and common shapes. However, it managed not to diverge from the brand’s style.
The car is currently in its testing phase. They decided make a rigorous test driving the 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda 500 miles a day for a month. It may seem that it’s not something very special, but the tests are running on air temperatures from 86 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Price And Distribution
The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda is a luxury sedan which won’t be available to everyone. It’s going to be sold and distributed on invitation, so there won’t be an official confirmation of the estimates. The estimates, as we already mentioned, assume that it could cost around $500,000, but it may be even more expensive. It will be distributed during the next year.
