Decadence, Aston Martin–Style: Official Photos of Production Lagonda Supersedan Released, Including Interior
Aston Martin has produced the first suite of images of its gorgeous Lagonda hyperluxury sedan in production form. This follows the release of photos of a prototype test vehicle in Oman a couple of weeks ago, which followed an embarrassing photo drop of the same car by Oman Air shortly after it arrived in the Middle Eastern country. Turns out the Lagonda is just as beautiful sitting in front of a glass wall (and next to its most recent predecessor) as it is bombing through the Omani desert.
Significantly, these photos finally show most of the Lagonda’s decadent interior, which appears to borrow heavily from the Rapide, for better or worse. Like the Rapide S, a large transmission tunnel separates the left- and right-side seats, which all have fixed headrests. The dashboard looks the same, dull steering wheel, flip-up navigation screen, and all. An elaborate diamond quilting pattern covers all four seats, and we wouldn’t doubt it if the leather was coated with pure gold. It sure looks that way.
While Aston is still officially mum on the details of the car’s underpinnings and powertrain (both of which we expect to be closely related to the Rapide S), we were able to glean a few key details of the Lagonda from a spokesman, specifically that its crisply tailored body is made completely from carbon fiber, and that weight stays “neutral over the Rapide S.”

Oh yeah, and that it has seen speeds of more than 175 mph during testing. First deliveries to its lucky customers will start in the first quarter of 2015; unfortunately for us and most of the rest of the world, all of the planned 150-to-200-unit production run are bound for the Middle East. Lucky sheikhs.
