2012 Lagonda SUV – (Global)

September 24th, 2008

Earlier this month Aston Martin announced that they would be reviving the Lagonda marquee.  The CEO of Aston Martin, Dr Ulrich Bez has said that the Lagonda will be about “offering exclusive, luxurious and truly versatile products with high quality and usability for both existing and emerging markets”.

The first signs of a future model are expected to be shown next year in the form of a concept car.  Fittingly, in 2009 Lagonda will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary.

Surprisingly, an Aston Martin spokesperson has hinted to the American magazine CARandDRIVER that the new model may be along the lines of an SUV.  The production model is due to go on sale in 2012.

Fans of the brand will remember that the last Lagonda was a four door sedan built between 1976 and 1989.  In this timeframe 645 examples of the super luxury car were sold, competing against models such as the Rolls Royce Silver Spirit / Silver Spur and the Bentley Mulsanne.
