We Hear: Limited-Production Aston Martin Lagonda Arrives This Year

The limited-production Aston Martin Lagonda will debut sometime this year, according to a new report from CAR. That supports the intel we received when we first spied the car a few months back. While longer than the four-door Rapide S, the Lagonda sedan is based on the automaker’s Vertical Horizontal (VH) chassis that underpins all modern Aston Martin vehicles.

Although Aston Martin showed the Lagonda SUV concept at the 2009 Geneva auto show, the (limited) production model looks like it will feature the same three-box shape as the original Aston Martin Lagonda built between 1976 and 1990. Built by Aston Martin’s Q personalization arm, the Lagonda sedan will be powered by a 600-hp version of the automaker’s 5.9-liter V-12 mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, according to the report. The current DB9, Vanquish, and Rapide S utilize a six-speed automatic. 1990-aston-martin-lagonda-front-view© Provided by MotorTrend 1990-aston-martin-lagonda-front-view

Production of the Aston Martin Lagonda is expected to be 100 units or less, and we've heard the sedan will be the last variant based on the VH architecture. Q was also responsible for the one-off CC100 roadster shown last year. While pricing won’t be revealed until closer to when the Lagonda becomes available, we expect the limited-edition model to surpass the automaker’s flagship Vanquish Volante in price.
