I'm assuming they presented it at Geneva to test reactions, and with the obvious negative outcry, I doubt they'll move it to production. Maybe they'll launch it again 10-15 years into the future when cars that look like this MIGHT, just might, become cool.

Default Re: Lagonda being revived in Geneva 2009

The news of Lagonda Resurrection is back and is now planned to hit the markets by 2015! V12 is expected. I find the 5.9L to be little odd though.

Quote:
Official technical details are yet to be released, but it is understood that the production models will use the 5.9-litre V12 from the Rapide S. In the Rapide, the naturally aspirated V12 produces 550bhp and 63.2kgm, granting a 0-100kph time of less than 5.0sec and a top speed of 306kph. Power will be sent to the rear wheels, most likely via a six-speed ZF automatic transmission.

A pre production model in Oman for testing. Heard it will running on the same Rapide S engine and the first set of customers will be on invitation basis and mainly focusing on the gulf market.

The undisguised Lagonda is currently undergoing hot weather testing in Oman and has already covered around 5,000 miles (8,000+ km) in temperatures ranging from 30 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius (86 to 122 Fahrenheit) from a total of 14,000 miles (22,500+ km) that Aston Martin wants to log in a month-long testing cycle.

Drawing inspiration from the original pointy Lagonda of the late 1970s, Aston's new limited run sports saloon is the work of the firm's "Q" special project division.

Very few technical details have been shared publicly, and the only concrete information we have is that the new Lagonda is built on the VH platform architecture that underpins the Rapide saloon. However, it's almost a given that the Lagonda will be powered by AM's 5.9-liter V12 engine, which in the latest Rapide S, kicks out 552hp (560PS) and 630Nm.

The first production samples are expected to land in the Middle East in 2015.

IMO, the side profile looks stunning.
