After offering the Lagonda Taraf in the Middle East, Aston Martin has
announced that the bespoke limousine will be made available to more customers
around the world.
The latest in a line of saloons revered worldwide as 'the finest of fast cars' is now available to clients in EU legislation-compliant Continental Europe, the United Kingdom and South Africa, with the Lagonda Taraf now re-engineered to be available in either left or right-hand drive.
"Opening up the Lagonda Taraf to an increased number of customers around the world was a high priority for me as soon as I joined Aston Martin late last year. I wanted to be able to offer this exceptional saloon to the potential owners from around the globe who have been enquiring about it, and I'm very happy that we have been able to expand the Lagonda proposition," said Dr Andy Palmer, the company's CEO.
The car is hand-built in a dedicated building previously given over to the creation of the One-77 supercar.
Aside from its original markets in the Middle East, the 2015 Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf is now also available in the following territories: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and Ukraine.
Lagonda Taraf Limited to 200 Cars
Initially available only to buyers in the Middle East, where it was launched in Dubai late last year, the Lagonda Taraf is being built in a strictly limited small series of no more than 200 cars.
The return of Lagonda follows in the wake of other bespoke special projects by Aston Martin such as the creation of the extreme Aston Martin Vulcan supercar, Vantage GT3 special edition, One-77, V12 Zagato and the CC100 Speedster Concept.
Pricing Remains a Secret
Based on the brand's almost infinitely flexible VH architecture, the saloon draws inspiration from the highly sought-after William Towns-designed Lagonda of 1976 and features many of the same engineering techniques seen in modern Aston Martin sports cars, such as the extensive use of carbon fiber body panels.
The 6.0-liter V12-engined super saloon is being offered to clients through Aston Martin's VIP sales program with precise pricing details remaining confidential. Reportedly, the base price starts at $700,000, but due to very high levels of customization the actual selling price is likely to differ greatly from example to example. Naturally, each Lagonda customer will have the option of ensuring their car is truly unique by personalizing it via the popular Q by Aston Martin bespoke service.
